Dear New Land Academy students and faculty,
Thank you for spending time with my Spanish I class.
We had a few minutes to share what they learned and I wanted to let you know that my students thanked me profusely for the opportunity to share time with your students.
Spanish I Cyclones loved the New Land Academy students interest in their daily routine. They were also amazed about the English skills displayed by the majority of the New Land Academy students, even the ones who recently arrived in the USA.
My students spoke about the similarities in sports, musical instruments, types of songs and some dreams like becoming engineers or acrobats - they mentioned the sport, but I cannot recall the name.
They were also amazed about the number of languages some of the students speak. I heard that there is a possible Arabic language instructor in New Land Academy.
I am attaching a picture of my students taken during Halloween. I am also attaching the PP we are working with this month. Slides 39-45 might be of interest.
I will share my Mind Body and Spirit tile with my students tomorrow. Please visit http://

Sage Dinning provided lunch for New Land Academy. Some Spanish I students helped teach about our family style. Some New Land Academy students experienced being Number 1 and Number 2 waiters. They learned about our Family style dinning exponentially.
After lunch, Art Club played "Pictionary" and gave Xmas stockings, which they had made and decorated for every member of the school. The stockings were filled with favorite Cyclone candies and writing utensils.

We had such a wonderful time getting to know your students and learning more about Casady. You have a true gift for hospitality and for showing love to others.
Thank you for the power point. WE will enjoy going through it.
Also, we appreciate the connection with Kevin and we are super excited about our new NLA/CASADY connection.
Hoping you have a Merry Christmas!
