Butte Creek Russian Class 2019-20
Please join us for the 10th year of Russian Class at Butte Creek! Our instructor Oksana Yoder is excited to return this year to help students in grades 1-8 develop their skills in a fun and engaging class environment that enhances a child’s ability to learn a second language, regardless of their previous exposure to the Russian language. The class is also a resource for parents looking to improve cultural and language studies for themselves and their children, while preserving their primary heritage language or acquiring a second language. Russian Class will be organized by ability level: Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced. Mrs. Yoder will pre-assess all students during the first week of school to determine the proper class level. All Middle School elective students must be at or near the advanced level, while maintaining satisfactory grades in their regular classes.
