Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to our academic elective, a semester of Beginning Spanish Class. This semester I have a wonderful group of motivated students. I am very happy about their progress.

My students will be learning the alphabet, basic greetings, responses, simple commands, and conversation. They will learn to have an appreciation for differences in culture and to have an empathy for those who struggle to learn a new language.

I really appreciate those students who consistently participate and help motivate their peers by their example. For homework, students are encouraged to share their notes at home with you and practice their vocabulary at home. This will help them excel in class. All students are required to have a 3 ring binder and notebook paper to keep class notes and hand-outs organized. Thank you for your support and for asking your child about what they are learning in class.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Susan Rivas
