What is due this week?

We are working on Week 10, continuing with Unit 5, Actividades Populares (Popular Activities in the Caribbean).

We are half way through our course. It is so important that students complete all assignments and submit them on time in order to avoid late penalties.

Below is a list of this week's assignments, due tonight and Thursday, April 4.

Peer Tutor Center

As we move on through the semester, I want to encourage your student to check out the Peer Tutor Center! The PTC is a great resource available with students waiting to help or tutor your student.

Are you a Canvas Observer in our course?

I will be contacting parents again this week about student progress but you can enroll in our class as a CANVAS observer and see your student's progress daily.

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

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