We only have 2 weeks left in our class!

For our last unit and the last 2 weeks of class, students need to attend an RLC for the Final Unit, take the Final Project Exam and create a Final Project. The Final Project must contain vocabulary and grammar from all the units, 2-8. (Unit 1 was a review of Spanish 2.) Click here for a detailed list of what students have been studying this semester to be included in their Final Project. In my announcements (Learning Blocks) this week I will be giving suggestions and ideas for the Final Project. Please encourage your student to read the announcements in order to help them prepare for the Final Project and Final Exam. The Final Exam and Final Project count as 25% of a student's final grade!

I will be calling parents this week to update you on your student's progress and to answer any questions you may have.

Here is our schedule for the last two weeks of class:

Required Live Classes for the Final Unit

Students have several opportunities to attend an RLC for the Final Unit this week and the first week of January. Please get your student to look at the schedule and attend a live class as they will have interaction with the teacher and can ask questions. (Final RLC and FE RLC listed on the calendar are the same thing.) It will be more beneficial for students to attend an RLC this week for the Final Unit so that they can be working on the Final Project!

Important Notice about due dates for Units 5-8!

The ending date for Units 5-8 is this Friday, December 18 @ 11:55pm as we want students to complete assignments weekly, BUT Units 5-8 will actually NOT close until Thursday, December 31 @ 11:55pm, which means students can work on assignments for Units 5-8 until December 31. At the same time, students will have until Friday, January 8, 2016 @ 11:55pm to attend an RLC (for the Final Project), complete the Final Exam and submit the Final Project. The Final Exam and Final Project count 25% of the final grade.


I would ask that you speak with your student about getting those assignments completed before the holidays and not wait till the last minute. Most students are submitting assignments weekly and meeting those deadlines, but just in case your student is behind, he/she will be able to catch up and work on Units 5-8 until December 31. NCVPS Winter Break is 12/21/15 - 1/1/16, but students can take advantage of this time to complete any incomplete assignments.


If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me!

Culture Cafe Sessions for Extra Credit for Participation Grade

The Holiday Season provides for great Culture Cafe sessions from around the world to help our students learn about the holiday customs and traditions of other cultures.


Students have 4 opportunities to attend a Culture Cafe for Extra Credit before the holidays. The extra credit counts towards a student's participation grade. Please remind your student of these very interesting topics!

On a more personal note...

I will be having a small procedure on Friday (December 18) for a torn meniscus. I wanted to let you know in case you or your student try to contact me on Friday as I may not be on my computer or answering my phone that day. I will be working on my computer off and on throughout the Winter Break, so please feel free to contact me.
