“The time is always right to do what is right.”
Protests … Looting … Curfew and so MUCH MORE!
We thought we were living history during the COVID-19 stay at home orders … well we are REALLY witnessing history now! This last week was one for the books! While it brought so many people together, there were some times when things seemed to get a little out of hand. This week Ms. Anastasia is joined by our friend, Ms. Philecia from the Elementary Virtual Engagement Team to discuss how the current events are making you feel. We’ve created a new survey so that we can REALLY hear what you want to say! Share this page with your friends so we know just what it is that you want to talk about!
June 8, 1966
NFL and AFL announce merger.
On June 8, 1966, the rival National Football League (NFL) and American Football League (AFL) announce that they will merge. The first “Super Bowl” between the two leagues took place at the end of the 1966 season, though it took until the 1970 season for the leagues to unite their operations and integrate their regular season schedules.
June 8th is National Best Friends Day!
June 8 celebrates National Best Friends Day, a day to honor that one special person you call your “best friend”. This day is a time to show them how much you appreciate them, how special and important they are to you and how you cherish their friendship.
Everyone has that one close friend, the one that you can count on to be there for you, the one you want to share your secrets with, the one you want to do fun things with, the one you want to just hang out with, that one person is your best friend.
Okay, so this week we are going to skip the chatter and suggest a few great movies to help you understand some of the issues that are causing people to hit the streets and protest for equality and for an end to racism.
First in line is “Just Mercy.” This effective, intense drama — which paints a picture of simmering racial injustice — is based on the true story of Equal Justice Initiative founder Bryan Stevenson, who focuses on helping wrongfully convicted death row inmates.
Conversation starter: How would you describe the relationship between racism and justice/the law? Does that align with what you’ve seen in movies and on TV?
This movie is rated PG-13; be sure to get parental consent before watching “Just Mercy.”
Happy Monday! Mr. Alex shows us the kind of activities that you can create when you are #boreinthehouseandiminthehousebored …. Please do not try this at home … or anywhere else! It was fun to record, so we are posting it just in case you need a laugh! Or in case you want to see a cute dog!
