This week we are starting on Unit 6, Los Deportes y Los Ocios (Sports and Leisure activities). All of Unit 5 assignments should have been completed this past Friday, April 6. 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!

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.
