Students of all grade levels at Babylon Elementary School are currently in the process of expanding their multilingual skills as they enjoy taking part in the recently implemented Foreign Languages in Elementary Schools program. 

With assistance from FLES specialist Adrianne Margarites, the students are engaging in daily lessons to help familiarize them with basics of the Spanish language. As an introductory activity, students enrolled in Barbara Krucher’s kindergarten class received a colored strip of paper, and when prompted by Mrs. Margarites, were asked to raise their colored strip when she announced the proper color in Spanish. 

Before concluding the day’s lesson, Mrs. Margarites and the students joined one another in their “Adios, mis Amigos” farewell song, a daily routine which assists in committing their new language to memory.
