High School Credit  Information
For students enrolled in any Spanish class at Stinson  (Spanish 1 through 4 -regular or AP), parents please be aware that these are high school credit classes offered in middle school. The grades earned for these classes will show in your child's high school transcript and will also be part of the GPA considered in your child's high school graduation ranking. Also due to the fact that these are high school credit courses, in accordance with high school regulations, semester exams will be given and count for 20% of the semester grade. Credit for the year may be denied if a student is absent 18 or more times during the school year. Attendance recovery can be completed through tutoring and flex opportunities in order to gain credit for the school year. Students who reach or exceed 18 absences for the year and who do not complete attendance recovery will not receive credit for the class.

Attending tutoring regularly is the best way to get and keep high grades. If a student is currently making 74% or below, tutoring is strongly recommended three times per week.


Grading Policy 
Spanish classes:   50% tests, projects (2 projects)
                              50% daily work 
                              Quizzes- daily work X 2

In an effort to maximize student learning, students have the opportunity to take advantage of the campus "reteach/retest" policy.  

If a student earns a low grade on an assignment or test, he/she has the opportunity to earn a higher grade if the following steps are completed.

1.  The student must first attend tutoring with the teacher to receive clarity on the concepts they missed.  This is the "reteach."

2.  The assignment can then be resubmitted or the test can be retaken with a 10 point penalty deduction.  This is the "retest."

3.  The last day to resubmit an assignment or retake a test is the last Wednesday of the current six-weeks grading period.  Grades from previous grading periods cannot be changed.

In an effort to maximize student learning, students have the opportunity to take advantage of the campus "late work" policy.  

If a student is absent, the student has three days to make up the work without penalty.  

1.  If a student does not complete an assignment on time, the student may turn in the assignment late.  

2.  A 15 point deduction will be attached to the assignment if the course is for high school credit.

3.  The last day to submit late work is last Wednesday of the current six-weeks grading period.  Late work from previous grading periods cannot be changed.

About me... 
I was born in Eagle Pass TX, but I lived and was raised in Piedras Negras Coahuila México were I attended elementary through Middle School. Later on I decided to learn english and enrolled at Eagle Pass HS, TX where I graduated with honors in 1990. That same summer I moved to San Antonio and graduated from UTSA with a BA in Spanish.
I am happily married and have two wonderful children, Sofia 13 and Edgar 19.
    
Yo nací en Eagle Pass, TX, pero crecí en Piedras Negras, Coahuila, México.  Allí fuí a la escuela desde kinder hasta tercero de secundaria. Después decidí aprender inglés y asistir a la preparatoria en Eagle Pass, TX donde me gradué con honores en 1990. Ese mismo verano me mudé a San Antonio, TX donde me gradué con una licenciatura en Español de la Universidad de San Antonio "UTSA". Estoy felizmente casada y tengo dos hijos maravillosos, Sofia 13 y Edgar 19.
