Dear students, parents, and guardians.
Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year. The following are the expectations and guidelines that should be followed in my honors Spanish classes throughout the school year. I am looking forward to a very successful and positive year. My conference period is from 9:55 to 10:45; please feel free to call me during this period. I will do my best to answer your questions.
Students will be acquainted with basic tenants of Spanish as a written and spoken language. As the year progresses, the students will gradually be introduced to more advanced concepts in Spanish; additionally, students shall become familiar with Spanish culture and history.
What to expect in this class:
Students will be expected to interact with one another and participate in all class activities. Activities include games, oral presentations, take-home assignments, and group projects.
Student materials needed:
● One 3- a subject notebook with pocket dividers (dedicated solely to Spanish) or;
● One 3 ring binder (dedicated solely to Spanish)
● Notebook paper
● Pen or pencil
● Box of Kleenex or tissue paper
● Dry erase markers
● Spanish/English dictionary (optional)
Discipline: Students are expected to follow all District and School rules while at PHS. In addition, my class rules are as follows:
● Be respectful.
● Be responsible.
● Be prepared and participate.
● Cell phones/personal devices are allowed only for educational purposes. (See student handbook for details.)
● MUST be on time.
The consequences of rule infractions include, but are not limited to: verbal warning, seat change, parent contact, detention, and/or an office referral.
Grading: All grading will carry the following weight for every nine weeks:
● Daily work 25%
● Tests/Speaking Spanish in Class 75%
Examples of daily work include: speaking Spanish in class, speeches, writing activities, reading comprehension exams, and oral presentations. Students will have homework two to four times a week.
Late Work: Work is due when the student arrives in class. Work is considered late if it is not done, forgotten at home, lost, or in the locker. Work turned in past its assigned due date will receive the following deductions:
1 day late= -30%
2 days late= -50%
3 (+) days late = 0
If you are absent:
It is your responsibility to find out what work was missed.
Any student caught cheating on an exam or copying homework answers from another student will receive a 0 for that grade. Students may also be subject to an office referral.
I am looking forward to working with you to ensure that we have a successful year. Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or need further information or assistance.
