Your son/daughter has embarked on the adventure of learning a new language. It will be a fun and exciting journey. We will be learning basic Spanish vocabulary and the present tense of verbs. I expect that all students will choose to actively participate on this great Spanish voyage where we will learn, not only the language, but also the cultures of Spanish countries. To stay aboard without harm to their grade, students must do all the work to the best of their ability and, most importantly, speak Spanish.
