Sponge classes are designed to instill a love of language and culture in children. Our dynamic, native speaking teachers lead small classes in fun activities in the target language-Mandarin, Spanish or French. Classes are taught through games and activities, music, movement and art, as we learn practical, every-day language and communication skills. New curriculum is added each year. Classes are offered at all four Elementary schools and district busing is available between schools so if you don’t see the class of interest at West Mercer, your child can attend Northwood, Lakeridge or Island Park.
