Mr. Licon's Oropeza Class of 2020

Let's Get Off To A Great Start/Comencemos con un gran comienzo

I am very excited to know that all of you will be in my class this year.  I always look forward to a great year, but this year will be like no other, and you will make it worthwhile.  Please be prepared to work hard all year long.  I can't wait to get to know all of you throughout the year and for you to get to know me as well.  Let's get off to a great start and our year will set the tone for years to come.  Be prepared and well rested because Mr. Licon will have you working a lot.  


Estoy muy emocionado de saber que todos ustedes estarán en mi clase este año. Siempre espero un gran año, pero este año será como ningún otro, y hará que valga la pena. Estén preparados para trabajar duro durante todo el año. No puedo esperar para conocerlos a todos durante todo el año y que me conozcan a mí también. Comencemos con un gran comienzo y nuestro año marcará la fundación para los próximos años. Prepárense y descansen bien porque el Sr. Licon los hará trabajar mucho.

Where Will You Be In The Fall Of 2027? / ¿Dónde estarás en el otoño de 2027?

Remember college begins HERE and NOW with Mr. Licon in Room 15!  The habits you create and establish this year will help you succeed in the future.


¡Recuerde que la universidad comienza AQUÍ y AHORA con el Sr. Licon en la Sala 15! Los hábitos que cree y establezca este año lo ayudarán a tener éxito en el futuro.



*Semester One Starts Now!*



Parents, please make sure that you get your kids to school on time.  Don't let those minutes affect their learning.  Every minute of the day is full of instruction and when they come into class late it becomes a distraction for the rest of the class.  I want to remind all parents that unless your kid is sick, please try not to miss school.  If at all possible, try to make all doctor appointments after school. In addition, taking them out early creates a void in learning, thus they miss valuable instruction.  Thank you for your attentiveness to this issue.




ELA:  Week of 9/3/19 - Students will work on essential note taking strategies that will deepen their understanding of literature. Students will be exposed to all of the Excel Icons that are critical in developing their knowledge and critical thinking skills of literature and in other content areas.


Essential Question:  How do literary elements and literary techniques connect to literature?


Story that will be read at home:  Esperanza Rising (realistic fiction).  Please ask your child questions about the story and have some discussions about what is happening to the main character, Esperanza.  I will be sending home comprehension questions after they read the entire chapter.  


Math:  Week of 9/3/19 - *Unit 1 

I will give weekly quizzes on Fridays, so have your kids study what they have learned all week on Thursday night. These quizzes will count toward their 1st semester grade, in addition to the class work, and Unit tests. 


Writing:  We will be brainstorming on how to write a personal narrative that we would like to share with our peers, parents, and educators.  As they finish their writing, they will publish their writing on their chromebooks in their Google Writing Classroom.    


Inquiry Research:  To Be Announced   


Book Need to be Covered/Los libros deben estar cubiertos

Parents:  Your students will be taking home district textbooks that will help them with homework, projects, and any additional research they may have to do this year.  In order to help maintain the integrity of these books I will require that the books remain covered ALL year long with brown grocery bag-type paper.  I will provide the first cover for these books, but thereafter I would like to kindly ask that you help in covering them with similar paper if you notice they are worn out.  From our Wonders Literature books to our Science books, it is important that when they do take their books home that they are protected and well taken care of everyday.  Thank you.



Padres: Sus estudiantes llevarán a casa los libros de texto del distrito que los ayudarán con la tarea, los proyectos y cualquier investigación adicional que puedan tener que hacer este año. Para ayudar a mantener la integridad de estos libros, requeriré que los libros permanezcan cubiertos TODO el año con papel marrón tipo bolsa de supermercado. Proporcionaré la primera portada de estos libros, pero a partir de entonces me gustaría pedirles amablemente que los ayuden a cubrirlos con papel similar si notan que están desgastados. Desde nuestros libros de Literatura Wonders hasta nuestros libros de Ciencias, es importante que cuando se lleven sus libros a casa estén protegidos y bien cuidados todos los días. Gracias.
