We are pleased to offer Mandarin Chinese classes to our students. These 1 hour classes are offered on campus after school as an extra-curricular option. Mrs. Song is our teacher and she has been teaching Chinese in Bay County for many years.
This year classes for PreK are on Mondays and Wednesdays from 1:50 PM to 2:50 PM.
Students in K-5 and 1st grade study on Mondays and Wednesdays from 2:50 PM to 3:50 PM.
Older students study on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:05 PM to 4:05 PM.
Cost will depend each year on how many participants we have and is typically about $65 per month, plus $50 for the book set, and CD. Students can be picked-up for class and returned to BASE.
"Last year my daughter, by the end of the year reviewed all the numbers from 0 to 100, and some basic everyday words; learned the little books 1 to 7; and 6 Chinese songs."
Spanish is taught to all Holy Nativity students beginning with 3 year olds enrolled in Junior Pre-Kindergarten. It is a graded subject for middle school students; however, students who transfer into Holy Nativity without previous Spanish experience are not graded in this required Spanish course until it is determined to be appropriate.
