Ashe County School Update for Friday, May 8th




Good evening friends.  It’s Friday—I hope you’re looking forward to the weekend.  Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms and grannies—you are priceless.  Enjoy your special day. 

Day 24 of required instruction—Students—As we come to the end of Teacher Appreciation Week, thank you for everything you did to recognize your teacher.  They loved hearing from you.  We loved the pictures you shared on the school system’s FaceBook page yesterday.  Your learning in action pictures were phenomenal!

Students and Parents—don’t forget to return your library books.

Special note—even though the Governor has lifted some restrictions on parks, school facilities and school grounds are still closed to the public.  

Day 33 for CN— 1810 breakfast and 1810 lunch meals were prepared and delivered today.  A big shout-out to everyone who makes this happen on a daily basis.  Get some much-deserved rest this weekend.

Are you ready for the answer to yesterday’s riddle (What building has the most stories?)  If you said the library, you are 100% correct.  Good job. 

Today’s riddle.  What is always in front of you but can’t be seen? Tune in Monday.


Today is the last day for fun facts about zebras.  Zebras usually sleep standing up.  They can rotate their ears in almost any direction—this ability is used to communicate their mood with other zebras.  They have one toe on each foot.  Zebras are one of the few mammals that scientists believe can see in color, except for the color orange, and they have better night vision than humans.  Zebras have thick bodies, thin legs, a tufted tail and a long head and neck.  Unlike the horse, zebras have short manes.  A zebra uses its sharp front teeth to bite the grass and their duller back teeth to crush and grind.  A zebra’s teeth keep growing for its entire life.  Zebras are certainly beautiful and amazing animals.  We’ll learn about a new animal next week.  Stay tuned.

Benefit #4 of 15 reasons why we should read every day—It makes us more empathetic, which means we have the ability to understand and share the feelings of another.  Reading about the life and times of people who are different from us makes it easier to understand and relate to those who are different from us.  Pick a book you like and read every night.

I hope everyone has a great weekend. Just forget about school.  Take care and practice all the safety measures for the coronavirus.  I’ll be back on Monday.  Ladies, again—Happy Mother’s Day.
