Description

The Center for Spanish Language/IB PYP at Joyner Elementary offers the most extensive Spanish language program to elementary students in Wake County Schools. It creates a learning environment in which students use structured inquiry to help construct their own knowledge; strengthen literacy and communication skills in English and Spanish; increase positive, cross-cultural attitudes; and create an understanding of their world through community involvement and collaboration.

All students will receive literacy and communication instruction in Spanish as they learn to express themselves in two languages (English and Spanish). This instruction enables students to communicate with each other in two languages both inside and outside the classroom.





Curriculum: Center for Spanish Language/IB PYP

The Center of Spanish Language has a history of offering the most extensive Spanish program offered at a Wake County elementary school. All students in kindergarten through fifth grade receive instruction in Spanish every day. Along with the study of the language, students develop an understanding of Spanish culture through art, music, and dance. A perfect accompaniment to the language program, the IB program helps students ask questions through an inquiry model of teaching and learning. With an emphasis on community service, students become responsible, globally-minded citizens.

Important: Bus routes are subject to change based on actual student distribution, parent appeals, and other factors. The information here will be updated regularly, but updates may take several days to be reflected online. This route information last updated: 2:56 PM, Thu, Apr 3, 2014.

Stop times: Because routes change daily during the first weeks of school, specific stop times are not provided. Parents can anticipate a stop time based on the route start time, estimating 5 minutes between stops in suburban areas, and 5 to 10 minutes between stops in rural areas. The exact stop time will vary during the first weeks of school. Stop times may vary as much as 30 minutes as students settle into their routines. Students should be ready and waiting for the bus at least 10 minutes before the bus is expected to arrive.

Bus schedules: We urge parents to be patient as routes settle during the first few weeks of school. Bus routes may be extended by as much as 30 minutes as students become familiar with a new routine.

Questions?: Contact the Broughton Transportation Office.
