News about your Spanish class

Welcome students to your Spanish class.

Welcome students and parents to our Spanish class. Some of you have been taking courses with GaVS and I am glad you are back. If you are new to our GaVS community I also want to welcome you. I hope your journey will be a pleasant one. ¡Les deseo buena suerte! (good luck!)

Parents I look forward to our partnership, as together, we will be able to help your student succeed. I am available for each of you, so please feel free to communicate with me anytime. Parents can email me from their personal email address. Students must use their Office 365 Outlook as their email account. You will create this account as your first assignment when you get to see the course. The link for your email account is posted under Classroom Bulletin Board, on your course homepage.

Please remember, I cannot send emails to you, the student, to your private email account. I can only email you to your Office 365 GAVS account. If you email me from your private email, I will not be allowed to reply!

Lastly, to see your course you must finish the Student Orientation Course first, no exception!
