Dear Parents,

With Thanksgiving being this week, our schedule has been slightly modified. As per the calendar and Mr. Scharbach’s communication, we will be having a half day on Wednesday (11/27). As a result, some classes may be shifted.

This week we focused on El Día de Acción de Gracias (Thanksgiving) in each of the classes. Students completed a variety of activities on the holiday. These ranged from making hand turkeys in 2nd grade to participating in a  breakout box using Thanksgiving vocabulary in the middle school. Students were introduced to the holiday specific vocabulary but in a game focused manner. 

Additionally, report cards are being finalized. No homework is assigned this week for Spanish. All future assignments will count towards Trimester 2. Report cards will be given out next week. As a reminder, Spanish is graded on a scale of 1 through 4. The breakdown is as follows:

  • 4 – Exceeding Standards
  • 3 – Meeting Standards
  • 2 – Approaching Standards
  • 1 – Not Approaching Standards

I use the comments section of the report cards to provide detail for your child’s grade. Please note, I will only be at Parent Teacher Conferences on Wednesday December 4, 2019. Please check Option C and Google Classroom to go over any assignments from the trimester with your child. 

Wishing you and your families a Happy, Healthy, Safe, Special, & Blessed Thanksgiving!


Mr. N. Amster
