March 27th — Transcript of Video message to Elementary Students from Mr. Hansen:
Hello everyone! I hope you are doing well through these challenging times. I thought that since it’s Friday, which as I like to tell Mason is the very best day of the week, that I would send you all a note.
I hope that out of this there are some positives and that you and your family are finding opportunities to do something new, and since you are isolated from your friends, I hope you also are able to connect in some way. There seem to be so many ideas on the web for fun activities for friends and families to stay connected and entertained. And speaking changes, look what just came in the mail today (picture of hair trimmers). Yep, Mrs. Hansen is going to learn how to cut my hair, stay tuned for my next message to see how it turned out.
I also want to take a moment to thank your teachers for all that they have done over the past two weeks. I’ve seen so many creative ideas that are blowing me away on different ways to keep your classes connected and for the learning to continue. And also thanks to your parents for supporting you and the school in our attempt to keep school going.
On the tech side, if you are having any problems, please reach out to Sandeep and me and let us see if we can help you out. You can send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I also want to mention that the yearbook team completed the book before school ended, however, I’d like to make a last-minute change and somehow include something about at-home learning. So, if you have any pictures showing you and or your siblings learning from home, please send them to me at email@example.com by Thursday, April 2nd. Add a little note as to what you are doing as well as everyone’s name who is pictured. And speaking of the yearbook, our deadline to order is next Tuesday, March 31, so ask your parents if they have had a chance to order. If not, have them go to the school’s web site and click on the yearbook order link found on the front page. If you have problems ordering online, please send me an email so I can put you on the list. firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m going to say goodbye for now. We miss you at school and can’t wait to see you all back soon. I wish you and your family all the best.
