French is considered one of the easiest languages for a native English speaker to learn.. Children will build vocabulary and reinforce their knowledge of French through the study of different themes such as family, transportation, farm animals and activities such as songs, fingers play, alphabet, numbers and shapes.

Help get your 5th graders ready for Middle School! During our week, we will focus on organization and study skills, procedures and expectations at St. Benedict's. Introductions to your new Chromebooks and highlight how to organize their information online and in their notebook. How to take inventory of your knowledge so you can effectively study. A quote from Mrs. Parrino – “I took something like this when I was in middle school and it quite literally changed my academic life. I was unorganized and did not really know how to study and this summer school class changed my outlook or perspective on these things. Sometimes ... that's all it takes!”
