World Language Assemblies at Roslyn Elementary Schools

East Hills and Harbor Hill elementary schools each hosted a World Language Assembly for fifth-grade students to kick off their decision-making process about which language to study when they advance to middle school next year.

World Language Chair Danielle Pappas, along with Spanish teachers Tami Cutler and Norell Agusti, Mandarin teacher Huichee Yeh, and French teacher Milva Franz, gave students a brief introduction to each language and taught them some new words and songs. Students had fun trying to speak foreign words and left the assemblies excited about learning a new language.
