I am waiting on our central office and administration to finalize the new end of quarter date before I reschedule the end-of-quarter tests. I will update those as soon as possible. For now, the only information I have is that we will be in school Tuesday, January 16, and Monday, February 19.
ETA: The end of quarter remains January 12. Testing will happen as previously scheduled.
(1) complete Quiz 8. If you were absent January 2-3, download and print out the quiz here. It will be checked for completeness and spot-checked for accuracy the first day back from our snow break.
(2) Complete Project 4 if you have not turned it in yet. Make plans to come before/after school if you need to make up Composition 2, Quizzes 6-7, or Performance Task 2. For the moment, all of these assignments must be turned in on or before Friday, January 12,, for late credit.
(3) You have until Sunday evening, January 7, to complete Edmodo Quiz 17. Edmodo Quiz 18 will be posted sometime Friday evening, January 5, and will be open through Sunday, January 14.
(4) Review your vocabulary, conjugating -ar verbs, and gustar sentences to prepare for the unit test. The test is January 10/11.
Review your missing work on Powerschool. You have until Friday, January 12, to make up/turn in the missing assignments. Your priorities should be Ensayo 1 (persuasive essay), Proyecto 3 (daily routines poster), Oral 2 (weather presentation for those who were in class Wednesday the 3rd), and then homeworks.
The end-of-quarter test is Thursday, January 11.
Your new vocabulary list will be posted here by Sunday, January 7. Begin studying the words - this will be our next quiz, day TBD but will be after the new quarter begins.
The Día de los Reyes Magos extra credit will be posted online here by the end of the day Friday, January 5. Please complete it (print out or type in your answers and save WITH YOUR NAME IN THE FILE NAME to email/share) and turn it in on or before Thursday, January 11, to receive the extra credit.
The Spanish Honor Society will host an after-school gathering for Día de los Reyes Magos (Three Kings Day) on Friday, January 5. There will be food and music and a scavenger hunt for cultural information on how the holiday is celebrated around Hiapanic America. Students who complete the scavenger hunt in full before leaving the party will receive ten extra points on Quiz 7.
Students who are not able to attend because of transportation or other commitments should check back to this post for an online version of the scavenger hunt. Print out and complete the answers, then turn it in to your teacher on Monday, January 8, for the same extra credit.
ETA: Due to the closure of school for weather, the party has been canceled. The extra credit questions are below. Download the document and find the answers online. If you fill it out on the computer, save it with your name on the file before emailing/sharing it with your teacher. If you print it off, fill out the answers and turn the page in to your teacher. Either way, you must have your extra credit turned in by Friday, January 12 for it to count.
Due to prolonged cold temperatures affecting building heating systems and buses during winter break, DPS will operate on a two-hour delay on Tuesday, January 2, 2018.
First Quarter ended on October 27. I have spoken to and put notes in Powerschool for those students who can make up the last few assignments due to absences. If students make up those assignments on or before November 9, I will issue grade changes for those students.
Students will receive their printed report cards on Monday, November 6.
November is always crazy. School will be closed on November 10 for Veterans Day and again on November 22-24 for Thanksgiving.
Tutoring with the Spanish Honor Society has begun. Students of any level in Spanish may come to Room 122 (Ms. Sudderth's room) from 8:15-8:55 for assistance with upper-level students on any part of Spanish.
Progress reports for the third quarter will be handed out on February 21-22 in most classes. Students with missing work have until Friday, February 17, to turn it in for late credit and have it appear on the progress report. Please look at the web page for your class for a list of said assignments.
Report cards will be handed out to students on Monday, February 6. We will operate on a 10-minute advisee schedule that day
This Thursday, February 2, at 6:30pm, Student Services will host a Registration Night for current 9th-11th grade students. Departments will explain their offerings and be on hand to answer questions and students and parents will have the opportunity to activate/access their Powerschool accounts in preparation for completing the registration process online.
Please be aware that the new administration is targeting certain problem behaviors among the student body, including arriving tardy to class. Hall sweeps will begin again soon and teachers have been asked to "reset" the tardy count for students for the new semester:
- First tardy = parent contact and warning
- Second tardy = parent contact and 10-minute detention with teacher
- Third tardy = parent contact and 20-minute detention with teacher
- Fourth tardy and beyond = referral to administration
- Failure to attend teacher detention = Administrator Lunch Detention
The adjusted schedule after the snow days is as follows:
Spanish I Quiz 2.3 - Friday, January 13, and Tuesday, January 17
MLK Federal Holiday - no school Monday, January 16
Spanish II Quiz 2.3 - Tuesday, January 17
Review for Unit Tests - January 18-19
Spanish I Unit 2 Test - Friday, Jan. 20, and Monday, Jan. 23
Spanish II Unit 2 Test - Monday, January 23
Last Day to Turn in Late Work from January - Monday, Jan. 23

We have not been given a date to expect report card distribution yet.
