More than 125 sixth grade students from the Christa McAuliffe Regional Charter Public School showed off what they have learned in Spanish, French and Advanced Spanish classes with a concert Thursday night.
Students learned Spanish words by translating popular songs like Carly Rae Jepsen's Call Me Maybe into Spanish and the classic song the Lions Sleeps Tonight into French.
They also performed popular Dominican Republic and Shakira songs already known in Spanish.
Each of the three classes performed a trio of songs. Clips from each of the classes is in the attached video, as well as clip of the final song sung in English, in which the students sing about changing the world.
Students from the Framingham-based charter school are admitted via lottery and hail from Framingham, Natick, Ashland, Sudbury, Holliston, Hopkinton, Southborough and Marlborough.
