Hola, Wilmot: School adds Spanish curriculum to its literacy program

The halls of Wilmot Elementary are filled with children greeting one another — only now some of that chatter is in Spanish.

That’s because this year, all 330 students get between 40 and 70 minutes of Spanish instruction each week, thanks to Wilmot’s accountability council and PTA joining forces to hire a Spanish teacher.

Principal Matt Cormier is proud of the program and believes it’s the first of its kind in foothills elementary schools.
