Ashe County School Report for Friday, May 15th




Good evening friends.  Another beautiful day—and it’s finally Friday.  Have a happy and blessed weekend.  Take time to play in the sun!

Day 29 of required instruction—8 ½ more days and counting.  Today is catch-up Friday if you need it.  If you are all caught up, then it’s a fun day!  Students, parents and teachers—forget about school and have a wonderful and relaxing weekend.  You have all earned it!!

Day 38 for CN— ­­­­1735 breakfast and 1735 lunch meals were prepared and delivered.   Thanks to everyone for another great week.  Rest and relax this weekend—you’ve earned it.

Are you ready for the answer to yesterday’s riddle (The more of this there is, the less you see.  What is it?)  Well . . . if you said the darkness, then you are right on target.  Good, good job. 

Today’s riddle.  I have not life, but I can die.  What am I?  We’ll find out Monday!!


Our final study on the kangaroo.  Did you know that kangaroos have quite a few skills that would make them a perfect candidate for the Olympics?  So, here is the challenge.  Think of another competitor that would be able to give the kangaroo a hop for its money in all of these categories.  Kangaroo boxing, K swimming, K football, K trampoline, K wrestling, K high jump and hurdles, K sprinting and K bodybuilding.  I forgot to tell you that the male kangaroo really likes to flex their muscles, particularly to other males.  Quite impressive—kangaroos are really versatile.  I can’t think of another animal that can do all these things—can you?  If so, please let me know.  We’ll learn about a new animal next week.  

Benefit #9 of 15 reasons why we should read every day—It improves focus and concentration.  Reading require focus.  Making time to read 15-20 minutes every day improves your ability to focus and, in the end, helps you to be more productive.  So—you can do this by picking a book you like and read every night!!

Have a good weekend everyone.  Take care—follow all the guidance to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.  Don’t forget to read every night before going to sleep.  And don’t forget that—I will be back!!
