These assignments are due by July 15th.  After July 15th, students should work on the Amplify on any assignments that students scored below an 80%. Students should also use this time to work on the JAM sessions for any basic skills that the student has not mastered.  If you have any questions regarding the summer math requirements, please email Stephanie.jones@sfawolves.org
 
 
SUMMER SPANISH - OPTIONAL
 
Dear Parent and Student,

Welcome to St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School. My name is Adrienne LeBlanc and I teach 1st through 8th grade Spanish. Lower school students have Spanish with me once a week and middle school students have classes 3 consecutive days in a 6-day rotation.

I have created optional the packet below for students in 5th - 8th grades to familiarize them with some basic grammar and concepts. I especially encourage students who have never taken Spanish before to complete the packet. There will not be a test or grade for this packet, it is simply intended to familiarize students with basic things we may have already covered in a previous year. All material will be reviewed in each grade during the first term. I am including a couple of online sites that will be helpful when completing the packet. Answers are included at the end of the packet. If you have any questions I can be reached at leblanc@sfawolves.org.

I look forward to meeting you in the fall.

Sincerely,
Señora Leblanc
