Dear Einstein community,

Asynchronous Day of Learning – Friday, October 16
District 54 will provide an asynchronous day of learning on Friday, October 16.  This day will focus on activities based on the book I Am Human by well-known author Susan Verde and Art by Peter H. Reynolds.  Their book, I Am Human, is a book about embracing empathy and the potential of each day. This book and the activities for the day, encourage us to make good choices by acting with compassion and having empathy for ourselves and others. The social-emotional lesson activities will focus on being The Best Version of Me! Students will be able to select activities that support their social-emotional well-being. Our school will also have a Padlet where students can share a picture, post or video of their work from the day.  The interactive link for activities will be sent to you on Friday, October 16.

This day will focus on how we learn, dream, and wonder to be the best version of ourselves. We hope you’ll join us to share how you’re connected to your friends, your family, your school, and your community. After all, we are all humans together!
