Estudiantes:
*** Students: Please bring the permission slip signed by your parents to see the movie


Can you believe it? The first quarter officially ended last week. Grades were due last Friday. Most of you must be very proud of what you have accomplished so far.  Here some students' reflections on their work of the first unit:

         " I think that in this chapter 1 the hardest thing was memorizing the vocabulary. I struggle until we did page 65 and I did a lot better. The easiest thing was the poem. I had a lot of fun doing that. I learned a lot about my house, poetry, vocabulary and Hispanic Heritage" - Cameron F. (1st Period-7th grade)
           " I think I did great because I understood everything in this chapter. All of the topics were easy for me because this is my native language. There were no hard topics for me because I payed close atention. I learned how to spell numbers, seasons, body parts, and other words we talked about.
I want to improve  in how putting the "tildes" on words. - Francelly R. (6th period - 6th grade)

           "I think I did very good considering I got a 100% on the test. The easy topics for me were the numbers and the letters. The most difficult topic for me was answering the questions after reading the paragraphs. I learned a lot more things in just this unit than my whole 5th grade year last year. I think I need to improve most on is understanding the paragraphs and interpreting them to my thought" - Chayton (5th Period - 6th grade)
Last week we also had our first unit test and the project was due on October 7th. I am sure you have turned it in.We also have started the second unit, and it seems as exciting as the first one.

Hispanic Heritage Month is coming to the end. The entire school will get together to celebrate it with a special program on Friday, October 14. There will be poems, songs, videos and a lot of fun. Disfrutenlo!!!
