The semester will end on Friday, May 20. All assignments, including the final exam, will be due on that date. Final grades will be posted by teacher on Tuesday, May 24, and should be available in registration to schools on Thursday, May 26.
As a part of the requirements of the course, students are expected to attend live sessions with any French I instructor (1 session/unit). The dates/times of live sessions will be provided in this section of the newsletter each week. Instructors will communicate with students in course announcements should there be any change.

* Monday, 5/16 @ 9am w/ Mme Nicole Swanson (Final Exam Review)
* Monday, 5/16 @ 4pm w/ Mme Mary Hansbrough (Final Exam Review)

Note that while the course calendars for Tradition, Early Calendar and Year-Long courses do not align, students may choose to attend any live session of their choosing. Students are also welcome to attend more than one session for extra practice! Students need to log in with both first and last name to ensure they receive credit for attendance. Those who phone in using the teleconference option need to identify themselves to the instructor presenting so their attendance is documented!
