    OMFG please translate this

    d00ds, I can't find my 501 Spanish Verbs book or my Spanish dictionary. This is problematic, since I can's spell for CRAP in Spanish, and I don't want to look like a subliterate moron, since this note is going home to the students' parents. PRETTY PLEASE. Also, please, no editorializing on the book selection. I'm limited by what's available from the school library.

    Dear Parents:

    Below is a list of novels that might be read in XXXXXXXXXXXXXX class during the 3rd six weeks period. If you prefer that your student not read any of these novels, please return this form before November 4th, 2004. If you do not object to any of the novels below, it is not necessary to return this form. Students whose parents reject a novel which is being read in class will receive an equivalent alternate assignment.

    Thank you,

    ______ Catherine, Called Birdy, by Catherine Cushman

    And yes, I know that the word for "form" in Spanish is actually "impreso," but they call them "formas" here. Hooray Spanglish.
