Good evening everyone.  I hope you’re still feeling energized and that you have a “spring” in your step!  It’s been windy today, but thankfully we had sunshine this afternoon rather than rain—sunshine always makes us feel better!

Day 11 of required instruction.  I expect it will take a day or two to get fully back into the swing of things after being out for a few days.  Don’t worry—you’ll be back into your routine in no time.  I haven’t heard anything from the Governor’s office about returning to school, so let’s just continue to do our best.  We already know that teachers and students don’t have to worry about testing for this year but that doesn’t mean we should stop learning.  We should always strive to learn something new every day—I know I do and I’m a lot older than you guys!!

Day 20 for CN—1788 breakfast and 1788 lunch meals were prepared and served by our CN staff and delivered by our bus drivers today. 

Okay—are you ready for the answer to yesterday’s riddle?  (When things go wrong, what can you always count on?)   How many said your fingers?  If you did, then you are 100% correct!    

Today’s riddle.  What has one head, one foot and four legs?  We’ll find out tomorrow.

More fun facts about polar bears.  Polar bears are the only species of bear that depends on the ocean to survive.  Their hunting and eating patterns depend completely on sea ice—why you may ask?  Because seals depend on sea ice and seals are the only food source with a high enough fat content and enough calories to keep a polar bear healthy.  The bears can only reach seals from the platform of sea ice.  Polar bears have a great sense of smell to hunt their prey—it’s estimated that they can smell a seal on the ice up to 20 miles away.  Amazing.  More facts tomorrow.

I hope you’ve had a good day.  Sleep well and we’ll chat more tomorrow.
