Foreign Language Enrichment at Hathaway Elementary School


Portsmouth Enrichment is pleased to offer Spanish to Hathaway students in Grades 1-4.

We are very excited to have Señora Michelle Leonard return to teach beginning Spanish to our Hathaway students this year! Señora Leonard has been an anchor for the Portsmouth Enrichment Program from the beginning, now entering her 15th year in this position. She teaches the same curriculum to both the Melville and PMS students, thus providing a uniform base for all as they move up to eighth grade Spanish at PMS. The dialect matches both that taught at PMS and PHS.

The Hathaway Elementary program fee is $175* and includes all materials. Classes will meet once per week, before or after school (see schedule below). Classes will commence for Spanish 1 and 2 the week of OCTOBER 21, 2019. ***SPANISH 3/4 WILL BEGIN ON WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2019. DUE TO EARLY DISMISSALS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR. Spanish 1, 2 and 3/4 will run until April/May 2020. Class size is limited and space is available on a first-come/first-serve basis.

Spanish Schedule
Spanish 1 for 1st through 4th graders – Wednesdays 8:00a.m. to 8:40 a.m.- meets in the Library

Spanish 2 for returning students, Thursdays, from dismissal until 4:05 - meets in Library

Thank you for your interest, we've had to close signups as the classes are now full for this term.

Please Note
We are looking for a parent volunteer for Spanish 1. The volunteer will be required to attend the classes to act as a helper and in return the child will receive a 50% fee reduction. A knowledge of the language is not required. If you are interested please contact . Please type "Foreign Language Enrichment" in the subject heading when emailing.
