You did it, friends! Today (for Track A) and tomorrow (for Track B) marks the end of our 2nd trimester!! Congratulations on yet another fantastic term!!! And for our Track A families, congratulations on making it to school on time (or mostly?) this morning! Springing forward can be a tough transition for some of us but we get a bit of time to catch up later this week. Give yourself some grace and spend some time celebrating what you and your students have accomplished in the last few months. Use our upcoming off days (after the parent-teacher conferences) to play, hang-out and simply be with your families.
Aside from a couple of short Daylight Saving Time resources, medieval art is the highlight of this week’s mix-in. We hope you enjoy what we’ve found! Have a beautiful week!
