Hola, yo soy la señora Fede
The Spanish program at Saint Mary Magdalen School begins in Kindergarten where students learn many concepts including colors, basic numbers and days of the week, as well as songs, games and traditions like
Navidad, Dia de Reyes and Carnaval.
The program continues through 8th
grade where students work with conversations, translations and conjugations of verbs in the present, past and future tense.
Elementary Grades K-4th has weekly Spanish lessons. The program for 5-8th grade includes two hours per week of Spanish instruction.
I created a set of practical workbooks based on the National Standards for Learning a Second Language.
The goal of our program is to teach the language, the culture and to give our students the ability to develop the necessary tools to be successful in high school Spanish.
Carpool & Parking
CARPOOL: Parents, please do not form a carpool line prior to 2:30 p.m. (1:45 on Wednesday and 11:55 on minimum days)
At 2:30 p.m. you may begin to form a double carpool line in front of the chapel sacristy.
Please do not pull forward past the sacristy until directed by a school staff member.
Cars leaving the parish center should be able to exit with ease.
Also, please do not talk on your cell phone or leave your cars unattended in the carpool line.
RESERVED PARKING: Just a reminder - There are 2 reserved parking spaces on campus. These reserved spots were purchased by families at the Pennies from Heaven
Please do not park in these spots at anytime, day or night - not even for one minute!
This one minute rule also applies to the 5 designated priest
spots in front of the rectory and the faculty parking spots on Chapel
Drive. Thank you for your assistance with this!
CARE & SPORTS:
Please make sure that if you are picking up students from the
Extended Day Program or sports practice that you park only in marked stalls. Do not park in red fire lanes or in spots
that are not marked. We need to keep the traffic lanes clear for vehicles passing through after school hours.
