Hello everyone.  It was a beautiful day—maybe summer is here to stay.  I hope so, don’t you?

Day 28 of required instruction—9 ½ more days and counting.  I know many of you miss being at school—you miss your friends, teachers, extracurricular activities and even the loud, crazy lunchroom.  But some students are enjoying remote learning because they get to work at their own pace and set their own schedule.  Either way, I encourage you not to take your education for granted.  Stay motivated—you will be glad you did.    

Day 37 for CN— ­­­­1768 breakfast and 1768 lunch meals were prepared and delivered.   As always, you are there for our students.  We are so blessed to have you as employees.

Are you ready for the answer to yesterday’s riddle (Four fingers and a thumb, yet flesh and blood, I have none.  What am I?)  Ok . . . did anyone say a glove?  If you did, you are absolutely 100% correct.  It’s hard to stump you guys.

Today’s riddle.  The more of this there is, the less you see.  What is it?  We’ll find out the answer tomorrow!!

 

More about our kangaroo friends.  As we have already learned, kangaroos are most well-known for their ability to jump a phenomenal distance and having a deep pouch on their front in which they carry their young.  There are three main species of kangaroo in existence.  The red kangaroo is the largest and most well-known.  The eastern grey is the heaviest even though the red is taller.  The western grey can be found in large numbers—their color ranges from grey to brown.  The kangaroo is the national animal and emblem of Australia.  Kangaroos are herbivores which means they eat grasses, flowers, leaves, ferns, moss and sometimes, insects.  Kangaroos are like cows—they regurgitate (which means they bring swallowed food up again to the mouth) their food and re-chew it before it is ready to be totally digested.  More tomorrow!!

Benefit #8 of 15 reasons why we should read every day—It improves memory.  In order to follow a plot and understand the story, you have to remember a lot and that is good practice for your brain.    So—how can I improve my memory?  Pick a book you like and read every night!!

Good night every one—hope you sleep well.  But what are we going to do before we turn out the lights?  That’s right—read some more in your book.  And don’t forget—I will be back!!
