Homework (la tarea) will be written on the white board in the same place each day. Independent study or homework is an important part of language learning and students should expect to spend 10 - 20 minutes a night on Spanish homework.
Grades are made up of tests, quizzes, projects, and homework. Grades are point-based. Each student can track his or her grade using the Parent Portal. Grades are entered within a couple of days for quizzes. Tests and writing assignments will be available within a week after they are submitted. Tests and quizzes missed due to an absence from school must be made up according to school guidelines.
Extra help will be scheduled between the teacher, student, and parents as needed. I am available for extra help after school every day and before school by appointment. The best way to reach me during the day is by e-mail. I try to check my mail at least twice a day. Please leave a phone number where I can reach you.
