The end is quickly approaching!

Below is information about the end of our class. I will be putting this info in an announcement for students tomorrow, Tuesday, July 23. Please let me know if you have any questions or if your student needs help.

  • The last day to submit classwork is Friday, August 9 when the class closes. .
  • This means that you have 2 more projects to complete: Units 5/6 this week (Friday, July 26), Units 7/8 which will be included/combined in the Final Project-more to come next week about U7/8 project.
  • You also have a FINAL EXAM and FINAL PROJECT due on Friday, August 9 @ 11:55pm.
  • The FINAL EXAM is about 30 questions and is online - not timed.
  • The FINAL PROJECT consists of vocabulary and grammar from units 2-8. (more info to come next week)
  • The FINAL EXAM and FINAL PROJECT count 20% of your final grade.
  • There can be no extensions to complete assignments as grades have to be turned in almost immediately.
  • That leaves you 3 weeks and only 2 weekends to get assignments completed!

How are grades calculated?

Culture Cafe sessions

One of the assignments students must complete for our course is to attend one Culture Cafe session. The session can be about any country. It does not have to be about a Spanish speaking country. Students have 2 more opportunities this summer semester to attend a Culture Cafe. Encourage your student to attend! (Students can not watch a recording for this assignment-he/she needs to attend live.)

Does your student need help?

Students are expected to attend Required Live Classes throughout the course which is a virtual classroom environment that allows for complete interaction with the teacher and other students. As such, questions are often answered in these sessions. However, if/when a student needs additional help, he/she should first ask me, the teacher. If I'm not available and it's a quick question, he/should should take advantage of the NCVPS Peer Tutoring Center. If more serious content tutoring/remediation is needed, the student/s can request one-on-one tutoring with me and/or a peer tutor. If a student is weary, nervous, and/or conscientious about taking the class online, he/she can request a Virtual Buddy from the NCVPS Peer Tutoring Center for moral support, technical assistance, and more.

It's extremely important that you, as the parent remind your student to communicate with me, as well as for you to contact me yourself. The team between schools/ELAs, parents, students and NCVPS teachers works best when all are on the same page and have effective communication. The best way for parents to contact me is via email at or by phone/text at (336) 242-8088. I appreciate your support!
