  • Dear Parents,

    Welcome to a new school year!  I sincerely hope that this next year will be one of learning and enrichment for the students enrolled in my Spanish classes.  I want to take this opportunity to inform you about my classes and classroom procedures.

    We will be studying and practicing using the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Language’s Can-Do Statements. These are a list of simple tasks that students are working to achieve such as “I can describe myself, my friends, and my family.” There are five different modes or domains: Interpersonal Communication, Interpretive Listening, Interpretive Reading, Presentational Speaking, and Presentational Writing. Students will be practicing each of these modes every day. I also plan to present the students with authentic material  that will allow them to hear and see the language in different contexts.  My goal is to present the students with meaningful material that will motivate their interest in the language.

    Even though there may not be any written homework at times, students should alwaysbe practicing and reviewing class material.  I encourage you to ask your child what was covered in class.  Each lesson has a very important vocabulary list that is a great resource to review at home each day. There will also be website links provided for a variety of both grammar and vocabulary activities.  Please encourage your son/daughter to practice every day.  Regular, consistent practice is the KEY!

    I have given each student a copy of my classroom rules and procedures.  Please read them together to help you and your child understand what is expected for student success.

    I invite all of my students to come for extra help during afternoon tutorials, every day except Friday, my duty day. It is importantthat allhomework is done the day it is assigned (allowing tutorials to be used for questions and additional clarification.)  If a student is unable to attend an afternoon session, I will be available for help in the mornings but they must have a tutorial pass to attend.  

    Students will receive progress reports at the mid-9wks.  Report cards are sent home at the end of every grading period. Your student should be able to tell how he/she is doing by checking the online gradebook.  In addition, please feel free to contact me regarding student progress either by school phone (629-8521) or e-mail me directly at and I will get in touch with you as soon as possible.  

    Thank you for taking the time to read this letter.
