Dear Parents,


My name is Adriana Smith. I am the Spanish teacher that started this school year here at Clubview. I have been teaching Spanish for fifteen years and I look forward to teaching your children.

Beginning in January, at the start of each new chapter, I will give study guides to the homeroom teachers with new words to learn. The teachers will place the study guides in the folders. We usually do projects with the vocabulary words for three to four weeks per chapter since the program for Spanish is only one class per week. It is very important for students to learn one to two words per night and then review them as much as possible (this is similar to how we learn to speak as infants). At the end of every chapter, each three to four weeks, I will quiz the students on their comprehension of the vocabulary. These quizzes are only one part of the students’ grade. In class projects and participation are also an important part of their final grade.

Parental support to learn vocabulary is crucial for your children to learn as much as possible. It is much easier for them at this stage, so your participation will be greatly appreciated. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions at


Best Wishes and Happy New Year!
