Tiger Tales Stories from Distance Learning and Beyond | December 2020

School looks different this year and yet, in the midst of so much change and uncertainty, due to their grit, perseverance, and flexibility, our teachers continue to teach and our students continue to learn. They are doing science experiments, participating in book discussions, talking with teachers, creating art, and staying active. Here is a very small glimpse into what learning has looked like in District 192 over the fall and early winter.
