Ranney Celebrates World Language Week

Ranney School World Language Department is celebrating World Language Week from February 8 through February 11. Despite the challenges in the face of the current pandemic, the faculty and students have created a week filled with exciting, engaging, and educational activities throughout all three divisions. Please enjoy some of the activities that are able to be shared digitally below: 

Distancia Amigo Distancia is a song that fifth graders learned last year as we were confronting the COVID 19 pandemic at home. We decided to join again to sing the song and show a slideshow to continue the message on how to prevent the spread of COVID19.
