Morning Announcements

Good morning to our Stride Community!

Today is Tuesday, June 23, 2020

There are no birthdays today but Amanit in Division 11 has a birthday on June 25, Reben in Division 1 and Inca in Division 8 both have birthdays on June 26th.

Today’s Challenge is a reflection challenge – for many students, today is the last day of school for this school year. What were some of your favorite parts?  What are you hoping will continue in September? Take a moment (or many) to congratulate yourself for your learning – about yourself, about other people, about the world. Congratulate yourself for all of the times you helped out and were kind to people you might not even know.

Ms. Griffin sent home an email the week before last advising the students who had returned to the school that: Monday was the last day for grade 6/7 Cohort C. Tuesday is the last day of school for the people who had returned to school in K-5 and grade 6/7 Cohort D. The ESW group is with us until Wednesday, June 24th.  For all of the remote learners, there was also a schedule of when to come pick up your report card and supplies. Here it is again:

Despite this unusual end to the year, it is still exciting to review that last report and feel satisfied about a ‘job well done!’

As one more reminder – tuck your pencil box and other school supplies away to bring back with you in September.

You are still on your own recess supervision (at home). Make sure to move your body, stretch your muscles and drink lots of water. We hope this habit has gotten so strong it will continue over the summer!

Today’s summer quote is – “Everything good, everything magical happens between the months of June and August.” ~ Jenny Han

Have a safe and spectacular summer!  We have enjoyed learning with so very much this year, even with all of the unusualness. We are so excited to see you in September and hear all about your adventures.
