Ms. Katy Kelly
Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,
I'd like to take this time to introduce myself; I am your child's Spanish Teacher for the 2017-18 school year. I am also the Spanish Club Advisor and Spanish Honor Society Advisor. I am very excited to begin our year and am looking forward to meeting your child and to seeing some prior students with me again.
Here on my Teacher Page you will find the syllabus for our class, my expectations and the grading procedures. I will not be giving students a hard copy of this, it will be displayed online all year long as well as on Blackboard.
I will be using Blackboard to disseminate information and assignments to the students, which is linked directly to PowerSchool for quizzes and tests to be completed online. Students should be able to log onto Blackboard now.
The first homework assignment ia as follows and will also be on Blackboard:
1) Join our class Remind.
Pd 1 = Text @kelly2a to 81010
Pd 3 = Text @pd3honors3 to 81010
Pd 4 = Text @pd4honors3 to 81010
Pd 6 = Text @pd6honors3 to 81010
Pd 8 = Text @kelly4h to 81010
I receive notifications once a student has joined my class. Parents, feel free to join also, to receive notifications.
As the Spanish Club Advisor, I urge your child to join the club. It is a social club, in which we go on field trips for dinner to area Mexican/Spanish restaurants. We are also involved with homecoming and sing carols in Spanish at the holidays.
Next summer 2018 there is a trip to Spain planned. Information will be forthcoming.
To be eligible for induction into the Spanish Honor Society (SHH) students must:
1) Receive a 90+ for each marking period of your sophomore year in Spanish Honors 3 or higher level. 2) Receive a 90+ for the first 2 marking periods of your junior year in Spanish Honors 4 or higher level. 3) Be an active member of the Spanish Club all 4 years of HS. "Active" means - To have attended 3 activities per school year and have paid the $6 membership fee each year.
All club information is on the Spanish Club Teacher Page. https://www.wtps.org/Page/7632
During the year if you have anything to share with me about your child, anything positive or have a question or concern, please don't hesitate to contact me, email is the best mode of communication.
