Opportunity for 7th Grade Students to Sample Spanish 2nd Semester

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Mrs. Jurss, our Spanish Teacher, would like to offer a "mini Spanish course" to our 7th grade students the second half of the year.  A taste of learning Spanish! Your student would have to have a 9th hour study hall for this to happen.  Please see the attached letter from Mrs. Jurss and Mr. Leach.  Although there would be no grade earned, attendance would be mandatory.
