Calm after the storm!

As I write this, I hope that you and your family are all safe. I have reached out to students to let me know if they are OK. Many have communicated with me that they are safe but have no power and that some schools are closed. Please know that I am working with students so that they will not feel stressed or worried about grades. I have extended last Friday's due date for assignments (Unit 3, lessons 3 & 4) to this Wednesday, but if you have concerns, do not hesitate to contact me and let me know about any situation(s) with your student.

Week 7

This week we are starting with week 7 and working on Unit 4, La Tierra. Students need to note that this Unit has 5 lessons and they will be working on lessons 1, 2 and 3 this week and lessons 4 and 5 next week. Just a reminder that as we continue to go through the semester specific assignments are due each week. Students only have to attend one RLC every two weeks, but are encouraged to attend more than one per unit if they want to. I will be contacting parents again this week to talk about student progress in Spanish 3. Please speak with your student and make sure he or she has completed all assignments through Unit 3 this past Friday. (I have extended the due date till this Wednesday.) In addition, students will be doing a Final project for Unit 3/4 next week where they combine the two units. Please encourage your student to start thinking about this project and contact me if they have questions or need ideas. Below is a list of what is due by this Friday, October 14.
