¿Qué hacemos en clase? ~ What are we up to in class?
Our current unit, Shopping (¡Vamos de Compras!), has just begun. We are learning how to identify clothing items in Spanish, as well as stores and how to navigate a shopping trip in Spain. We will have two small projects and will have an open notes quest for this unit. If your student is working diligently in class, they should not need to take any work home.

- Pic-Tac-Toe Activities (4/8 or 4/11)
- El Corte Inglés Webquest (4/8 or 4/11)

Un Anuncio Importante ~ An Important Announcement
You have heard by now that Señora Poling has replaced Señora Ackroyd. Señora Poling and I are working very hard together to ensure that ALL 8th grade students are successful throughout the remainder of the year. We are planning lessons together and are asking the students to complete the same work, just as Señora Ackroyd and I did previously.
I apologize for the stress this transition may have caused you and your child...and, we appreciate your support in helping them to stay calm and focused on their studies. At this point, I am no longer grading and/or assessing Señora Ackroyd's former students, as Señora Poling has taken that task over. Please refer all questions and concerns to Señora Poling via email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Thank you, again, for all of your support and understanding!
