Hi 344 Scholars,
Boy have I missed you over this last week! We are living through an unprecedented event. New York City Public Schools have never been closed this long due to a storm. I hope you're all staying safe and finding creative ways to exercise your bodies and minds. When we return to school on Monday, I can't wait to hear about all of the interesting things you've learned at home this week!
I know we'd all love to hear about how things are going at your home. Did your family lose power? Are you at your apartment or did you have to move somewhere else during the storm? Have you seen any examples of people helping one another? Have you learned any interesting facts about hurricanes?
I strongly encourage you to use the comments section below to write a response about the hurricane. The entire class will be able to see your response - it will be public - so please take the time to edit your writing. Also, please do NOT post any personal information like your specific address or contact information. Your first name is fine, but please have an adult check over your comment before you hit "submit."
I can't wait to read all about your Hurricane Sandy adventures! See you soon!
