WEEK 20: 2/1-5/16....NOTE IMPORTANT UPDATES AND CHANGES FOR THIS WEEK!

1. The presentational speaking activity which we completed on 1/28 has 
   been recorded as a test grade, and an oral participation grade for 
   Week 19.  The participation grade was based on class punctuality and 
   completion of task.  The test grade was based on the scale of 
   100-95-90-85-80-75-70.....And note that the dates of this activity in 
   Power School had to be altered to 1/26/2016 to fit the MP2 time frame 
   of grades.
2. For this week (20) you will need to bring your UNA VEZ MÁS WORKBOOK, 
   notebooks, and necessary writing utensils to class each day.
3. This week I have decided to use portions of my exam to assess your 
   cumulative writing, listening, and reading skills. Therefore, it is
   extremely important that you make every effort possible to attend both 
   days of class sessions this week. 
4. Please understand students that I am not penalizing you with more work
   because of the changes with exams. I really feel the necessity in our
   PRE-AP class to assess your overall cumulative skills at this moment in
   the term, and I am thus using my mid-term exam as an evaluation tool 
   to see how you are progressing to this point.
5. Each class period this week will be divided in to two parts....one for
   exam assessment and one for new material.  Tuesday's exam assessment will 
   be presentational writing; and Thursday's will focus on interpretive 
   listening and reading.  These test assessment grades WILL COUNT TOWARDS 
   THE MP2 (MARKING PERIOD 2), which in turn will affect semester one (S1) 
   grades.
6. Because of the changes in our schedule, there will be no new written
   homework due for this week. Instead, prepare for the assessments
   listed below in the week's plans and activities.

----NOTE!! I RECEIVED THIS MESSAGE FROM SRA. WELLES.  LET'S DO THIS!!
If you read an earlier email, I mentioned that we will be partnering with a
new program while in Guatemala that is also working on developing a library
and focused on encouraging education in the indigenous communities.  The
couple in charge of this program also run a language school – Jabel Tinamit
Language School in Panajachel and they are the only Mayan descendants to own
and operate a language school in the region and are very much interested in
helping their communities.  I would like to start a book drive next week, a
friendly competition between our classes to see who can bring in the most
books, to take to Candelaria for the new library they are building.  The books
need to be in Spanish – children’s book from early readers to young adult. 
They should be new or fairly new.  As an incentive, the winning class (done as
a percentage based on enrollment) will receive donuts from Sugar Shack.  The
donuts will be delivered to their class on the day of your choice.  If you
would like to participate, send me a quick “I’m in” as a reply and post on
your website and announce to your classes.  The last day to bring in a book
will be Monday, March 30th.  I hope you will all join in!
