Diane-Caprice Felger Adams

aka Cappy Felger Adams

aka Sra. Adams

Spanish Teacher since 1994


Welcome to Introduction to Spanish and the 2018-2019 school year.  I am so excited to be your child's teacher and I look forward to a wonderful school year full of learning and fun.

The syllabus, supplies and grading policy can all be found on my teacher website.

La evaluación (Assessment):

1. Los examenes y los proyectos grandes (escritos y orales 50%)

Exams and major projects (written and oral 50%)

2. Las pruebitas, la participación, el trabajo de la clase y los proyectos pequeños (escritos y orales 40% )

Daily i.e. quizzes, participation, classwork and small projects (written and oral 40 %)

3. La tarea y crédito extra (escrito y oral) 10%

Homework and extra credit

Total : 50% +40% +10% =100%

FYI: According to district policy, there must be at least 3 exam or major project grades, 9 daily grades and 3 homework grades per 9 weeks.

Any failed exams, tests or quizzes may be retaken after a tutorial has been attended. The two exam grades will be averaged together. If neither grade is passing, then the higher of the two grades will be recorded.

Cheating will be taken VERY SERIOUSLY. Any student caught cheating will receive an automatic zero on that work. Parents or guardians will be notified. Have confidence in yourself! Do your own work! Copying homework IS cheating too!

********!Entrega tu trabajo a tiempo!********

All work missed when absent can be made up, however the type of absence determines the grade scale.

Work assigned during an excused or unexcused absence will follow the late policy found in the student handbook.

Attendance is very important. When you are absent you miss important instruction and information. Please try your best to attend EVERY class. REMEMBER: It is the student’s responsibility to gather and turn in work missed when absent.

Tardies are not a good thing either. They lead to lunch detention and a loss of important instruction. In the real world excessive absences and tardies lead to job loss.

Let’s create good habits now! Do your best to be on time!
