Español en nuestra clase

Hello parents,


Our class has begun learning some basic Spanish. We are lucky to have two great volunteers helping students with this new adventure...Mrs. Martin and Mr. Martinez.


Use the links to have fun and practice!


Week #1 - Students are beginning with basic introductions and numbers 0-20. Attached is the link so students can practice the numbers.

Week #2 - Classroom items and people (Just a few to start)

BABY IT'S COLD OUTSIDE!



It's taken awhile, but cold weather is finally upon us...at least for now :). Please encourage your child to bring a forecast-appropriate jacket to school; we will be outside for recess as long as the temperatures and weather permit.

Headphones / Earbuds

If your child has an extra pair of inexpensive headphones or earbuds at home that they could keep in their backpack or at school, we'd appreciate it! Please make sure they're clearly labeled with your child's name.
