We explore the richness of Spanish-speaking cultures in support of the experience of learning the Spanish language. Games, stories, puppets, songs, skits, art projects, cooking and cultural information all supplement the study of Spanish. All students use Spanish workbooks and cultural notebooks created especially for Saint Paul School. The middle school students also use a three-part middle school textbook and an interactive DVD.  

Goals for students in grades K – 8
1. Hear, understand, speak, read and write in Spanish
2. Participate in cultural activities from the Spanish-speaking world
3. Recognize and use Spanish vocabulary and phrases
4. Participate in games, songs and skits that teach Spanish grammar and vocabulary
5. Participate in Spanish conversational exercises called Solo Español
