De la Seora:
This evening we invite you to come to the basketball game at the High School for a time of fellowship and fun with other Locust Grove families. Your child received a ticket to the game and we encourage families to come. When I was gone, Mrs. Morales used a bead system to encourage good behavior and the reward was a promised pizza party. I would like to have that party on Thursday, Feb. 14. If you want to contribute anything to the lunch, please let me know. A veggie tray, fruit, drinks, or dessert could all be helpful. Please make sure your child doesnt pack or buy that day. Finally, please note the school schedule below!

Spelling words come from the letter and syllable combinations we are studying for the week. This coming week will be ll, x, and w combinations. The ll is considered one letter in Spanish and makes the sound like the English y. Depending on the accent of the speaker, it could also sound like a j. The x is not a very common letter, but it usually makes the same sound as the English x. In some words it has an h sound (like in Mexico). The w is an import from English and is only used in English words adopted by Spanish (like windsurfing). The ll will be our main focus.

lla (ya)

lle (yeah)

lli (ye)

llo (yo)

llu (you)
