Oh good. This should help things progress.
Quarantine has been good for our house and to do list. Every week that goes by, another project is done!
Now that sports are creeping back in, we can expect a full stop
I'm surprisingly emotional about the end of the school year (especially with one moving on to high school ).
It's less about finishing distance learning, and more about the kids who were supposed to have a great year with friends, but ended up alone doing school work on their bedroom floor. But they did it! And now we move on. That goes for all the parents who struggled through too .
(No one better dare comment with anything about school in the fall. We're talking SUMMER here!)
It's release day! If you pre-ordered, your book should be shipping this week; if you didn't order yet, you should!
I'm addressing this to teachers since it's relevant right now, but feel like it's pretty universal:
If you make something optional, you cannot then send daily all-caps highlighted reminder emails begging and pleading and bribing everyone to do the assignment, and talking about how much hard work it is for you. Either make it mandatory or leave it alone.
Also, no one is doing optional work on June 9 after 12+ weeks of crisis schooling.
Whoopsie! Better run a spell check on those end-of-year award videos!
*Not our school*
The words pictured below are not mine and I am not at the protests, but everything I have seen and read leads me to believe that the protesters are not the looters. They are distinct groups with very different intentions. One is completely valid, the other needs to be stopped. They are stomping on the message and drowning out important voices.
