Spanish III Honors: Week of January 7

About This Week

Happy New Year! This week, students will become familiar with classroom expectations, grading policies, and course objectives. Students will begin reviewing material from Spanish II and will take a working-skills assessment. This assessment will give both the teacher and student an idea of what the student remembers from Spanish I and Spanish II. This grade will not be weighted, but will be available in StudentVue.
