Good morning & Aloha 6th, 7th & 8th graders! Before I post this week’s lessons, I need to share something personal with you with. My sweet little Jacques had an enlarged heart. Thursday evening he was suffering, so we took him to the doggie hospital and had him put to sleep. Because of the coronavirus, we couldn’t go inside, just like people hospitals. My son Brian & daughter-in-law Kris, and son Andrew were all there with us, standing outside kissing him good-bye one last time. My heart is broken, and I still cry when I see his toys & bed. I know some of you have lost your furry family members, too, and know what a loss this is. Because of this loss, this week’s lesson plans may seem a little weak. I apologize. I’m working each day on getting stronger, & getting back to teaching. I miss you all:) 2 days until April…hopefully sunnier days are ahead. God Bless.
