Free Friday

Today is the last day to comment on the Gratitude post and be entered to win a gift certificate to the school store!

Next week is our last week of the trimester – you’re almost there! Has it flown by for you? While you’re working on progress reports, finalizing history day costumes, and gathering items to help out with our Early American Recitation Bee and Fair (please visit the Volunteer Sign-Up google doc to sign up!), we hope you are enjoying the learning happening at home. 

One reminder: you won’t want to miss the “Organize Your Area Homeschool Seminar” today at 1:30 pm in Lewis Library. It’s the perfect time to pick up a few nuggets of inspiration and try something new. Bring in one organizational trick to share, and be ready to learn from each other!

Amidst all the busy tasks and events, let’s take a deep breath and enjoy a little moment of humor today. Here’s a goofy, short video from “BoredShorts” – these guys make videos of grownups acting out stories that kids tell. This is one you may relate to:

You can find more BoredShorts videos on youtube. The Bischoff kids recommend one of their favorites, “Kid History Episode 6: Healthy Food.” Enjoy a good laugh!

As you head into the weekend, we want to encourage you to be “Free by 5:00” and purposefully carve out some time to connect face to face with friends and family.

If you’re feeling very adventurous and spontaneous, here’s a last-minute idea for an out of town trip. There’s a Civil War Reenactment happening in Moorpark this weekend, and it sounds amazing. Click here to learn more.

Happy Friday!

"I'm si-wee-ous!" Yeah, we love the basketball class one too! Some of those Kid Snippets are really funny. We also love "Lunch" - the Hot Dog Bun Store. :)
