Rising fifth grade students must choose a World Language to study for the next four years as Westside School Middle School students. A Sign Up Genius form will be sent via email to parents in April after spring break. Upon receiving the link to Sign Up Genius, please indicate which World Language, Spanish or Mandarin, your child would like to take for the 2016-2017 academic year. Now is a good time to have a family discussion on what is the right choice for your child in regards to studying world language in Middle School.
