5th Grade Language Selection

World Language Choice for 5th Graders

5th grade students in Glastonbury have the opportunity to decide which language they wish to study throughout middle school (grades 6-8) during the spring of their 5th grade year.    There are three options for Grade 5 students currently studying Spanish in Glastonbury:

-Students may continue their study of Spanish.

-Students may switch to French.

-Students may ADD Chinese to their study of Spanish.

Students who are new to Glastonbury in 6th grade will study French, as it is a beginning course.  Students from GEHMS (Glastonbury-East Hartford Elementary Magnet School) can continue to study Chinese and may add the study of French.
