TGIF (Thursday Glowing Incandescent Fire)

My weekly message for 4/1/21

Dear Team Stellar,


Happy Spring Break!   Happy Easter!   Happy Passover!


This will be our last end of the week communication for a couple of weeks. Next week is Spring break, so your next Friday email from me will be 4/16. Which, coincidentally, is also our Walk-a-Thon!! I'm truly looking forward to that event. Even with masks and social distancing, it will be nice to forage back into our 'normal.' Please continue to use common sense as our world starts to open back up - masks, handwashing, etc.  :D


Speaking of normal - Alameda County was moved to the orange tier on Tuesday. Now you will see more diners eating indoors and other service establishments opening up. I believe masks and social distancing are here to stay for a while. 


From our Student Council: Reminder about our Walk-a-Thon!! We went on a "field trip" on Tuesday during lunch to scope out the parking lot. It already has a track painted on it!! We still, however, need those orange cone thingies.... :D Also, our next FUN FRIDAY'S theme is going to be a "Pet Day." What this really means is that we will be bringing our stuffed animal friends to school to be counted. I heard rumors of a penguin family attending that day...


Throughout the last few weeks, students have been staying home due to illness. That is normal and happens all the time. Several of you asked for us to copy and email the work for that day to you. You are, of course, welcome to log on and listen and participate where appropriate. Unfortunately, we don't have the time resources needed to be making last minute copies to scan and then send. We hope you understand.
