Newsletter/update – 1/20/2013

paris snowHi,

We have reached our first milestone…the first progress report. The students have worked diligently to complete their assignments. Please remember that for any submission deadline, there must be a cut-off after which zeros are put in. Students may make a submission after the deadline for late credit; however, their zero may not be replaced with a grade if the teacher has already pushed grades into the Progress Reports system. It will be replaced when re-graded.

To see the most up-to-date information on grades and completed assignments, you need to log into the parent auditor site. If you need the information on creating that site, please let me know.

We have reviewed important verbs from first semester and new verbs have been added to the students’ repertoire. Being able to describe weather has been a major element of the last two week study. We are making a virtual trip to Paris during this chapter. We have just looked at the Métro, the major intown transportation system. Students have seen what it looks like and how to find their way through city by using the Métro map to locate lines, stations and the direction in which they want to go

A number of students wrote in their first Discussion that they hope to go to Paris in the future. This information will help them navigate the beautiful City of Lights.

As always, I am an email or phone call away. My contact information is below. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have questions.

Regards.
