Sharing What We Know Best: FUN & Enriching Activities!

Fun with Falcons!

Ft. Ms. Zooey
If you missed Fun Falconry Friday last week, don't worry! You can catch up on what you missed by following along through Ms. Zooey's presentation here. Learn more about all animals through fun games and quizzes by visiting National Geographic Kids!

Kindness is Key!

Ft. Mr. Malik
In these uncertain times we must remember to practice compassion and kindness to ourselves and others. As such, I compel you guys to say at least one kind thing, and do one kind deed for yourself, or someone else, over the next seven days. Remember, acts of kindness serve the giver as well as the receiver.

Dare to Dream!

Ft. GearUP
Do you dream about your future college or career? Create your very own vision board to put those dreams to paper!  1) Find a piece of paper or poster board and something to write with. 2) Start to draw what you imagine your ideal college or ideal job will look like. For colleges, this could include campus buildings, school logo, sporting events, etc. For careers, imagine yourself working at your dream job!
Additional Notes: You can cut out images from magazines to add to your board. If you don't have posterboard or other materials at home, use a website like Pinterest to make a virtual vision board! Once complete, make sure to put your vision board in a place that will inspire you to work towards your goals!

Learn How to Invest!

Ft. Hadriana Lowenkron
