Greetings Wolfpack! Just four more days until Course Selection Day!

 

Looking for an elective that will develop your whole student - mind, body, and soul? Then one of our many music course offerings may be for you!

 

Did you know that recent legislation passed by our country's lawmakers, and signed into law by President Obama, entitled "the Every Student Succeeds Act" (ESSA) lists music (among all the other core subjects and discipline areas) as one of the "stand alone" subjects that are essential for a complete and comprehensive student education? #musicstandsalone

 

Attached are two documents that shed even more light on the "whole child" effects that music can have on your student and what is courses are offered here at CO!

  • The first document is a quick-reference guide to the "Music Offerings" at the Wolfpack for 2016-2017.
    • Please note: "Guitar Workshop 1 & 2" and "Music Appreciation" are still being offered for next year - they were accidentally left off of the document.
  • The second document is a general overview of the power of music education in the lives of our children. Here's just an excerpt:

QUICK THOUGHTS TO CONSIDER WHEN SELECTING ELECTIVES COURSES:

While many people already respect the importance of maintaining music education in today’s schools, there are thousands of others who don’t understand why it’s necessary.

Today’s educational culture places a high value on quantifying academic achievement.  Clearly, gauging student progress and learning is important.  At the same time, we must recognize that our true mission as educators lies in shaping the students behind the scores.

Yes, we know that music education is important to the lives of our students, BUT WHY?

Studies have demonstrated positive links between music education and outcomes such as test scores and graduation rates.  These outcomes help affirm the value of music programs; however, experts believe that music study does something even more important for students.

  • Music education shapes the way our students understand themselves and the world around them;
  • Studying music allows for deeper engagement with learning; and
  • Music education programs essentially nurture the assets and skills that pave the way for a student’s future success, such as curiosity, creativity, collaboration, self-discipline, and motivation

In other words, music helps develop the student behind the test score.  This is the broader minded™ argument for music education.

COHS students and parents,

 

Course selection for the 2016-2017 school year will be held during advocacy next Tuesday, February 9th

 

The World Language Department is offering Spanish and Japanese language classes levels 1, 2, 3 and 4.

Remember that all these courses  emphasize communication in Japanese or Spanish by speaking, listening, reading, and writing. Students will study the countries and cultures where Japanese or Spanish is spoken and will make comparisons and connections with their own. The courses will be conducted primarily in Japanese or Spanish.  These courses meet the district’s World Language graduation requirement. “a-g”/“e” or “g” approved

 

Also we have some other options that can be a perfect fit for your needs if you are planning on going to college or a four year University or... travelling around the world :)

 

  • Spanish Combo 1/2  and  Spanish Combo 2/3 “a-g”/“e” or “g” approved  

If your goal is to make it to Spanish 4AP Language and Culture class, then the Combo classes are for you! Do 2 years in one! Be immerse in the language the entire year, become fluent faster and be ready in 2 years to go to Spanish 4 or 4AP.​

  • Spanish 4AP Language and Culture  “a-g”/“e” or “g” approved  

If you are currently in Spanish 4, you need to sign up for the class for next year! 100% passing rate for 2 years in a row! If you are in a lower level but have the skills and interest, talk to Mrs. Paredes HM1 or email her to discuss your options. 

  • Spanish Conversational * new at CO 

It is an INTRODUCTORY level Spanish class, designed to prepare you for Spanish level 1 or just give you some more communicative tools.  It is NOT  “a-g”/“e” or “g” approved course  but it will give you the credit and meets the district’s World Language graduation requirement.

 

Questions? Talk to any Foreign Language Teacher in the HM building or email them.

 

Thank you!
