Good morning and we move on to week #6. Before you know it, we will be at the end of the 1st quarter! MS and HS students are in live core classes.

We are working to create that correct balance between real and rigorous...that

means we are trying to make sure we cover enough material, without making it

impossible to keep up. One thing we are working on is the classwork that is required.

It probably feels like homework, but remember, your classes are only 25 minutes

long. If we were in session that would be done in class. Thank you for working as we

continue to find just the right balance.

Deadlines are important, even in distance learning. If a test is due on a particular

day, you need to make sure the test is done by that day - you can not procrastinate.

If there is something out of your control, talk to your teacher.

CMHS Dad Joke of the Day:

My daughter told me she saw a deer on the way to school.

I answered, “How do you know it was going to school?”

This is Mr. Kappes  with a few

words of wisdom...

Some people say:

Love is the glue that holds the universe together.

We know that glue binds things together, right? And if you think about it, so does love. Think of the person you love most in the world. Don't you feel very bonded to that person ... connected?

So, if love is like a glue that connects and binds, what do you think hate does? Hate separates. It separates nation from nation, people from people. It can even separate you into tiny pieces. You can't be a whole and healthy person and be filled with hate.

But wait! You don't have to go to pieces! You can let go of those hateful feelings. Find someone you love and trust, and talk about it. We have great counselors (teachers) who can help. Maybe together you can find a way to glue things back together.

With something to think about, this is  Mr. Kappes. Make it a great day ... or not. The choice is yours.
