Daily Update

Scroll down to find the date that you need and there will be a description 
of what we did in class that day and any assignments due or upcoming 
assessments. 

****Since daily quizzes are actually pop quizzes and we have so many of them, 
students do not make those quizzes up if they are absent. Any other quiz, 
such as vocabulary quizzes, will require a make-up quiz after an absence.****

****Tutoring is available after school any day that I don't have a meeting, 
just make an appointment with me so I know that you plan to come. There is a 
list of Spanish Honor Society students and AP students who offer peer 
tutoring available in every Spanish classroom. Please get help if you need 
it.****
