Today is O.K. Day! (March 23rd)

I do love the Checkiday site as a way to discover little known holidays ~ like O.K. Day!  According to Allan Metcalf, the author who started this celebration, O.K. is such an important word in the American language that he's written an entire book about it.

Change Is Simple Visits ~ What are gyres?

Change Is Simple is a non-profit group that visits our school four times a year to teach us about keeping our world cleaner and healthier.  During the last visit, we learned about the ocean and its different layers:

In our oceans, there are areas of large whirlpools called gyres.  Some of these areas become filled with trash and debris.  The biggest one is in the Pacific Ocean.  I never knew any of this was happening.  In addition, a lot of the debris includes plastic by-products, and that's why it's so important to use reusable bags and as little plastic as possible.




In closing...

Yesterday report cards went home.  Preparing report cards ~ even though it's all computerized ~ is still quite time-consuming.  I spend a large amount of time making sure that I give each student the grades they have earned.  Plus, we need to write comments which is probably the most important part!


Thank you so much for visiting today!  I hope it's really spring wherever you live!
