This week we are starting on Unit 6, Los Deportes y Los Ocios (Sports and Leisure activities). All of Unit 5 assignments should have been completed this past Friday, November 3. Please encourage your student to stay on task with assignments. Just a reminder that NCVPS does not observe a fall break. (See below.)

Students have 3 opportunities to attend an RLC for Unit 6 this week and 2 next week. Please encourage your student to look at the schedule and attend a live class as they will have interaction with the teacher and can ask questions. If your student is unable to attend an RLC for Unit 6, tell them to contact me for information on making up the RLC. I will be teaching my RLC on Monday, November 13 @ 8pm.
