HCCS Greek Curriculum
HCCS students will learn to read, write, speak, and understand Greek starting in Kindergarten. First, students learn simple words and phrases, then sentences and readings. Each lesson contains a vocabulary of new words and many idiomatic phrases translated into English. Singing, games and plentiful opportunities for conversation and practice are integral components of Greek Instruction. Students also learn Greek culture and are exposed to and learn about Aesop’s Fables, Greek mythology, Greek philosophers, and Greek Folk Dancing. HCCS also commemorates the two special Greek holidays, Oxi Day - October 28th and Greek Independence Day - March 25th with school wide performances.
HCCS Paideia Seminars
Beginning in kindergarten, students at HCCS participate in Paideia seminars usually as a culminating activity after a unit of study, at least once a month. Students learn to set individual goals for themselves and to reflect on their seminar performance.
