Dear Families,

¡Bienvenidos a la clase de español!  Welcome to Spanish class!  In case you haven’t seen this information elsewhere, I have compiled some helpful videos and information below. This video Parent Technology Academy  (https://www.yonkerspublicschools.org/Page/45326) is really helpful for both parents and students. It shows you how to log in to PowerSchool and Microsoft Teams. It is a good place to start and will help you know what to do on Tuesday morning. There are also videos for students to help them learn to navigate Microsoft Teams. (https://www.yonkerspublicschools.org/Page/37215) It would be good to spend some time with them before school begins in order to make our first sessions run smoother. 

If you are already familiar with PowerSchool and Teams, below I summarize some information from the videos about signing on to these sites this year. 

I will be greeting all of the students in Microsoft Teams on Tuesday, September 8.  Please log on at the period indicated on your schedule.  Please see the schedule below. To join our class meeting, please open your Spanish class in Teams.  Click on “Posts” at the top and look for the button that says “Join” in the stream. It will appear there when the meeting starts. 

I am really looking forward to meeting my new 7th grade students and seeing the familiar faces of my 8th grade students who I have really missed seeing since March. 

I will be using the Remind app to send out notices and communicate with parents. You can also contact me by email at rborio-roman@yonkerspublicschools.org. Seventh grade families will be receiving an invitation to join Remind from me.  Eighth grade families who have not joined may join using the code below. 

If you are not using Remind and would like join, here are the links:

7th Grade Spanish A1: Join Remind  or open the app and enter our class code: @hdh6hg

8th Grade Spanish A2: Join Remind  or open the app and enter our class code: @2ckkh3

I highly recommend signing up for Remind for both parents and students since it is an easy way to ensure that you will receive messages about assignments and have questions answered quickly.  

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you need help navigating all this. 

See you on Tuesday, September 8!

Warm regards,

Renée Román
