• SPANISH - Smith Spanish Classes--6th, 7th, and 8th: Bienvenidos a espanol! Welcome to Spanish. My name is Melody Smith, and I teach at Southeast Guilford Middle School. Previously I served as the English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL/ESL) teacher at both Southeast Middle and High. I love being a Falcon! In past years I was a Spanish instructor in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro school system. I look forward to working with each of my students--we will accomplish a great deal this year! If you have any questions, please call me at 674-4280 or e-mail me at smithm8@gcsnc.com . *En espanol : Si tiene preguntas, mi número aquí es 674-4280 o puede escribirme:  smithm8@gcsnc.com 

     

    6th graders are part of an Exploratory Class of Spanish and will meet every other week throughout the year.

    7th and 8th graders take Spanish 1 every day for two years. If they meet course requirements and receive a passing grade, they are eligible to receive a high school credit and move on to Spanish 2 when they get to high school. Parents/Guardians, please help students to remember to save all of their handouts and notebook throughout both years of Spanish--these will help them later on. They should organize the handouts by units. 8th graders should review their Spanish 1 notes and handouts the summer or semester before entering Spanish 2 (as well as visit links on Canvas for textbook activities, grammar games, etc.). If you have any questions, please let me know.

     NOTE:  HOMEWORK AND INFORMATION WILL BE SENT THROUGH CLASSDOJO NOW (2018-).....PLEASE ASK MRS. SMITH FOR A CODE TO SIGN UP IF YOU HAVE NOT ALREADY DONE SO.  This web page will still be up for basic information and textbook links.
