Week 11

This week we are starting on Unit 6, Las Celebraciones, Celebrations (Latin America). All of Unit 5 assignments should have been completed this past Thursday, April 4. Please encourage your student to stay on task with assignments. Just a reminder that NCVPS does not observe a spring break. (See below.) If students are on Spring Break, this is a good time for students to catch up or work ahead!

Culture Cafe for Extra Credit!

Students have several upcoming opportunities to attend a Culture Cafe for Extra Credit. The Culture Cafe does not have to be about Spanish.

I will be teaching a Culture Cafe next Monday, April 15 @ 8pm about my trip to Cuba (in 2017).

Why not be a Canvas Observer in our course?

We are more than half way through our course. Now is an important time to be checking on student grades and participation in our course.

As a CANVAS observer, you can see the daily announcements, read the feedback for your child's assignments and see his/her grades. (Keep in mind that I cannot enroll you in our class as I do not have your student's login information.)

Parents and facilitators can now download the Canvas Parent app in both the iTunes and Google Playstores

Parents and facilitators will need student login information to set up their parent accounts. This will have to come from the school. NCVPS cannot supply login credentials to parents or facilitators. Check with your school's e-learning advisor (ELA).

The Canvas Parent app is designed to provide visibility into a student's progress at a glance. Canvas Parent allows both parents and facilitators to:

  • View assignment descriptions and due dates
  • Set reminders for assignments
  • View assignment grades
  • View course grades
  • Set grade alerts
  • View course announcements

Here are several helpful links:

Parents and facilitators can also use the Parent Portal online. Directions on how to use the portal are here.
