Ashe County Schools Update for Wednesday, April 1st

 

 

Welcome to Wednesday’s update!  What are Wednesdays?  Hump day, so we’re heading towards the weekend!      

Day 3 of required instruction.  As I said yesterday, remote instruction is a learning curve for both teachers and students.  Students and parents, please give teachers this first week to adjust their instruction.  I can say for sure that our teachers want their students to be successful and that they are working in overtime mode to get it right.    Hang in there during this transition period.    Remember students—all teachers have set office hours, so please reach out to them if you have a question or concern.

Day 12 for CN—1795 breakfast and 1795 lunch meals were served today.  Kudos again to all employees and volunteers who are working so hard for our students—that is why we do what we do every day—to love, protect and provide for our students.      

Okay—are you ready for the answer to yesterday’s riddle? (repeat riddle—What has a face and two hands but no arms or legs?)   Wow—you guys are exactly right—it’s a clock. 

Today’s riddle.  How far can a fox run into the woods?  We’ll get that answer tomorrow. 

Okay—everyone seems to love the fun trivia facts about animals.  There were lots of comments on yesterday’s facts on the blue whale, so I did some more research on the blue whale, known as the gentle giant.  It is the largest animal on the planet, weighing as much as 200 tons or 33 elephants.  Moose—do you know how many pounds are in 200 tons?  Let me know!!  Blue whales have feelings and show affection—their heart is as big as a Volkswagen Beetle and the beating of this massive heart can be heard as far as two miles away.  Their tongue alone can weigh as much as an elephant and their lifespan is from 80-110 years.  There are more fun facts on the blue whale that I will share with you tomorrow. 

Don’t you love learning new and interesting facts?  I know I do.  Students—hope you have developed your daily routine.  Sleep well and I’ll be back in touch tomorrow.  I really do miss all of you!!
