VERY IMPORTANT NOTES

* Please continue to work for 15 minutes on I-station in Spanish everyday at home. This is a task for the rest of the year. I have spoken to the students about it. I really appreciate your support with this extra practice at home. Mrs. Calta


* I Just want to let you know that I use English language in my class on information that is very important like, fire drills, lockouts, weather drills, discipline matters, school rules and sometimes inside the bus during field trips. It really helps to get students' attention quicker and move on, especially when we are pressed for time. Mrs. Calta
