Letter to Parents of non native speakers

Dear Parents or Guardians;
My name is Jonas Calderon and it is my pleasure to have the opportunity to work with your child in m Spanish class.  We will work to develop your child's proficiency in the four basic linguistic factors: reading, writing, speaking and listening comprehension. 
The semester ahead of us will be one full of tasks and projects taht will require your child to demonstrate mastery of certain skills.  The tasks and projects will be complemented by a set of assignments and activities that will aid your child in the completion of the task.  In this class, your child will learn about the diverse cultures of the many regions that make up the Spanish speaking world and he/she will be expected to produce some projects dealing with him/herself, the school, the community, the school and being a teenager among other things.  
It is of extreme importance that your child continues to put forward his/her best effort.  I don't expect perfection, but I do expect an honest day effort and a genuine desire to learn.  The grade your child obtains in the class will be derived from many factors, but two of the most vital ones are the attitude displayed by the student towards the subject matter and a genuine display of behavior that is serious, mature, respectful and responsable in nature.  I have worked at Foshay Learning Center for the last 18 years and I am looking forward to this new year.  I hope your child is excited too and I hope this new year is one full of productivity, learning and growth.
If you have any questions or comments about any issue, please feel free to call the school at 323-737-2700 and arrange a meeting during my conference periods
(2nd and 4th).
Thank you for your time and attention,
Jonas Calderon
Spanish Instructor
