Ashe County School Update for Tuesday, May 12th




Good evening everyone.  First of all—I got to see several of our students today—it was so good to see you and your big smiles.  I really, really miss you and your teachers really, really miss you.  Hope everyone had a good day.  It was cool and windy but no rain—that was good.  It’s supposed to be really nice for the weekend.  Yay! 

Day 26 of required instruction—13 more days and counting.  Continue to work hard—soak up as much learning as possible.  You will be glad you did when next year comes.  You can do it—I know you can.  Please, please don’t give up. 

Day 35 for CN— ­­­­1791 breakfast and 1791 lunch meals were prepared and delivered.   As always, you are heroes to our students. 

Are you ready for the answer to yesterday’s riddle (When things go wrong, what can you always count on?)  Absolutely—your fingers.   You guys are so smart!! 

Today’s riddle.  Which one is not white—the White House, white sugar, polar bears and snow?  We’ll find out the answer tomorrow!!


Our friend, the kangaroo.  Kangaroos don’t have many predators, but they are sometimes attacked by humans or dingoes (much like the wolf).  When attacked, they will lead the pursuer into water and then use their forepaws to drown the pursuers.  Why water—can kangaroos swim?  Kangaroos are very powerful swimmers—they can swim up to 44 mph by using their powerful back legs in a dog-paddle movement.  Anyway, back to predators—if not close to water, the kangaroo will back against a tree and kick—their kicks have enough force to kill a human.  Animals are so interesting, aren’t they?  More about our kangaroo friends tomorrow. 

Benefit #6 of 15 reasons why we should read every day—It improves our writing skills—it goes hand in hand with improved vocabulary.  The more you read, the more it will improve your writing ability because you are subconsciously influenced by well-written materials.  Pick a book you like and read every night!!

The end of another day.  Read some in your book before you turn off the lights!  Rest well and . . . yes—I will be back!!
