ANNOUNCEMENTS & REMINDERS
World Language Credit at Sammamish HS on March 25th& April 1st!
High school students can earn up to 4 credits for a Language that They Already Know
This test is for World Language credit, so it is about language learning and it’s focusing on basic reading, writing, speaking and listening.
NEW – Online Self-Assessment
Click here to use the self-assessment to determine:
- If the WLCC test is appropriate
- Which test you should choose
- A prediction (only a prediction) of how many credits you might receive
World Language Credit Program provides these opportunities for students:
– To honor and validate students’ first language and the languages of their families
– To provide opportunities for fluent and literate speakers to receive high school credit for their knowledge of these languages.
– Students who earn 4 credits also automatically earn the Seat of Bi-Literacy.
– To open up opportunities for students to access core subject credits required for graduation (This is a significant opportunity for ELL students who enter the – U.S. high school system mid-year or with limited core subject credits.)
– To prepare bilingual students for future career opportunities in private industry and to meet government needs for skilled bilingual speakers.
– To motivate students to take advanced courses in their heritage languages at their schools, in college or at ethnic community centers.
The ACTFL-aligned proficiency assessments are provided by commercial testing companies that give nationally-normed results. To meet the needs of all the languages in our community, we use six different testing companies. This causes wide variations in cost.
The testing is free for students who qualify for fee waivers
- $25: STAMP4S
- $30: STAMP4S Handwritten
- $50: WorldSpeak
- $132: ALTA
- $180: WAFLT Custom Test (For languages not tested by the others testing companies)

Spiritridge Elementary has two big events coming up – Need Volunteers!
On April 5th we have our 50th Anniversary celebration. We would love to have a slide show presentation. We need photos from the year book scanned. I imagine it will take 2-3 hours of photo scanning at your convenience.
We also need some data entry volunteers. I have a number of names that need to be entered into our new database so we can send out the invites. This can also be done on your own time-I imagine it will take 3-4 hours.
We are looking for volunteers to help set up the event. This will be just setting up tables and decorating. Only about an hour of your time.
On June 12th, We have our annual school Carnival which is a anticipated event of the year. We are in the planning stages now and would love students who love to throw a family friendly party. We need volunteers to help plan, set up and run this event.
Please email me or give me a call or text.
