Spanish IXL

  We are very fortunate to have a trail Spanish IXL for 2nd - 5th grade for the next 6 weeks. While we have it, I intend to use it as much as possible . Students will bring their IXL usernames and passwords as well as their headphones or earbuds to Spanish class starting next week .  If by some reason your student has lost or broken their earbuds/headphones  please have them replaced so that she/ he can activily participate in the Spanish IXL program. We will use the first 15 minutes of class on IXL.  Most of this program is a review of things they have already learned.
