! Felices Fiestas de Invierno!

15th December 2009

Good morning Dear parents and guardians. I hope that you were warm last week and did not suffer the adversities of the cold weather.
Last week we turned the Assignment Sheets and the students got their grades for progress report. For the most part it was a success but still there are some students that need to turn some assignments in to improve their grades.
During this week and after winter break I am going to contact the parents/guardians of those students that have assignments to turn in to let them know that the child needs extra efford and they can still turn those missing assignments. Also, this week students will receive the new assignment sheet where they, you and me will monitor the working process of the students.
This week we have the Winter Holiday and two classes are performing Mexican dances; my class is 301 and I am pretty sure thatt they are going to enjoy a lot and perform like real professional dancers, I can’t wait to see the smiles in their faces while they dance. !Buena suerte para ellos!
Winter break is a time to relax, enjoy the company of the love ones and time to watch movies too and there is where the students can still be connected with the Spanish language; I recommend that your child watch some movies in Spanish, if you can’t get real movies in the target language you can change the set up of the dvd and put the Spanish option on; normaly you get subtitles in English and the speaking is in Spanish; I do really recommend this activity as a way of being in touch with the language.
!Perfecto! Espero que tengan unos días muy felices en companía de los seres queridos y nos vemos a la vuelta de las vacaciones. !Disfruten mucho de la vida!
I hope you have very happy days with your love ones and we will see after vacations. Enjoy life a lot!

!Felices Fiestas!

Atentamente,

Mr. Martín
