About Languages Other Than English

  • "The limits of my language mean the limits of my world"

    Ludwig Wittgenstein
    Knowledge of more than one language bridges cultural barriers and opens up a world of social and economic opportunities.  In response to the district’s commitment to continue to provide Hauppauge elementary students an opportunity to learn another language, Spanish will be offered after school for 40-minute classes, two to three times a week at each of the three elementary school buildings.  The classes, which will be offered in three 12-week sessions conducted over the course of the school year, are open to all fifth graders and are provided at no cost.  Late buses will be available for the return home.

    The sessions will run as follows:

    Session 1: September 11 - December 1, 2017
    Session 2: December 4  - March 16, 2018
    Session 3: March 19 - June 14, 2018

    Bretton Woods: (3:20 - 4:00) Tuesdays, Thursdays, and alternating Fridays
    Forest Brook (2:50 - 3:30) Mondays, Wednesdays, and alternating Fridays
    Pines: (3:20 - 4:00) Mondays, Wednesdays, and alternating Fridays

    Currently, at the secondary level, the Hauppauge LOTE department offers opportunities to study French, German, and Spanish beginning in the 6th grade. Students typically take the FLACS Checkpoint A Exam at the end of 8th grade and the FLACS Checkpoint B Exam at the completion of level 3 of the language. Post Checkpoint B offerings include honors and non-honors level courses and the option of taking AP or IB Language courses in one of our three languages: French, German, and Spanish.
