    Day 10

    Summer vacation: 39 million Americans won't take one this year


    This honestly could not have been a better day.  Who wouldn't want to be in Hawaii right now?  Today is National Virtual Vacation day.  Where would you like to go? Since you are the most terrific parents and students out there, I have booked you a trip to the following places today, FREE OF CHARGE! FREE! (I know, thank me later):  Venice, London, Paris, Ireland, Switzerland, and for all those thrill seekers- space and the highest roller coaster in the world! https://nationaldaycalendar.com/virtual-reality-tours/ 

    Go. Really. Take a minute to just virtually head out and imagine that you are there.  I hope you have a good Monday.  Since it is "conference week" we were asked to only post Math lessons.  I will be emailing those parents today with the assigned worksheets.  For ELA, just take it easy.  If you want something to do, hop on Epic! or Freckle or just read a good book and talk about it.  We know how hard students (and parents for that matter) have been working.  Here is your mini vacation (ha... I know. You want your money back, right?).  Really, take care of yourself this week and know that I am thinking of you all.  I'll be on the conference call with the general education teacher, so we'll chat soon.  I'll bring coffee. 


    “This week’s Distance Learning activities are limited to math and special.  Please use the remainder of the time to catch up on activities posted during the previous two weeks. 

    Elementary teachers will be conducting conferences and planning new learning for next week’s launch of Phase 2 of the CB Distance Learning Plan. Thank you!”
