OAKHURST – Perfecto! Starting Saturday, Nov. 15 and continuing every other weekend, two Yosemite High School students will lead a beginning Spanish class for kids at the Children’s Museum of the Sierra.
Classes are 45 minutes long and run from 1 p.m. to 1:45 p.m. The teens who will be devoting their Saturdays to teaching are hoping to spread the word.
As volunteers working together on their senior project, Jonathan Wharton and Rebekah Urbano are collaborating with the popular discovery center to provide area children with additional language skills.
Beginning Spanish classes are free for CMOS members with membership card. Lessons are included with the price of museum admission for non-members. As an added incentive for timely arrival, admission will be half-price for the first five students each lesson.
“Come have some fun learning Spanish and enjoy the museum,” say the student organizers. For more information, contact the Children’s Museum of the Sierra at (559) 658-5656
Students like Jonathan and Rebekah at Yosemite High School and other schools locally are challenged to come up with a special project in their senior year of studies to benefit to the community. The Children’s Museum of the Sierra is home to a world of fun hands-on learning explorations for preschoolers and school-age children.
