A bit about our history today - at 7:55 am on Sunday December 7th, 1941, a airplane bomber bearing the red symbol of the Rising Sun of Japan on its wings appears out of the clouds above the island of Oahu. A swarm of 360 Japanese warplanes followed, descending on the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor in a ferocious assault. The surprise attack struck a critical blow against the U.S. Pacific fleet and drew the United States irrevocably into World War II.  The day after Pearl Harbor was bombed, President Roosevelt appeared before a joint session of Congress and declared, “Yesterday, December 7, 1941–a date which will live in infamy–the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.”  That sentence however, is one that when heard by most adults is a reminder of the sacrifices the generations before us made during WWII and it is one of those things that we hope the generations to come will know and honor the memory as well.

NATIONAL FRITTERS DAY

National Fritters Day on December 2nd allows for no frittering away of the time. Fritters come in a variety of forms, from morsels dipped in flavorful batters to bits of dough stuffed or filled with delicious surprises. All of the varieties are deep-fried and served hot with dips, drips or dustings of seasonings, sweets or sauces. Found in cuisines all around the world, fritters are believed to have first been consumed by Ancient Romans. They then introduced them to Europe. Most commonly filled with fruit or cheese, they can also be filled with savory meats, seafood, and vegetables. Serve up some fritters with your meal tonight. You can try corn fritters or apple fritters. Another favorite is potato fritters. Try a few different recipes, but be sure to share your favorite. We’ve provided some recipes to enjoy.

HISTORY OF VETERANS DAY

Veterans Day began after World War I.  After four years of bitter war, a peace treaty was signed.  The “war to end all wars” was over.

November 11 was set aside as Armistice Day in the United States, to remember the sacrifice that men and women made during World War I, in order to ensure a lasting peace.  On Armistice Day, soldiers who came back from the war marched in a parade through their hometowns.  Politicians and veteran officers gave speeches and held ceremonies of thanks for the peace they had won. 

Congress voted Armistice Day a legal holiday in 1938, twenty years after the war ended.  However , Americans realized that the previous war would not be the last one.  World War II began the following year, and nations great and small again participated in a bloody struggle.  After the Second World War, Armistice Day continued to be observed on November 11.

In 1953, townspeople in Emporia, Kansas called the holiday Veterans’ Day in gratitude to the veterans in their town.  

Then, Congress passed a bill renaming the national holiday Veterans’ Day.  Americans still give thanks for peace on Veterans’ Day.  

There are ceremonies and speeches, and at 11:00 in the morning (on the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month), most Americans observe a moment of silence, remembering those who fought for peace.

NATIONAL GREAT AMERICAN POT PIE DAY

Now that we have celebrated the first day of Fall, usually warming up the house by baking a pot pie made sense!  Pot pies typically include both a flaky top crust and a bottom crust. Occasionally, recipes omit the bottom crust. Fill them with tender chicken, beef or pork, and lots of vegetables for a hearty meal. Some other delicious fillings include turkey and seafood. Popular veggies include potatoes, carrots, green beans, and peas. Finally, the gravy and seasonings make the pies irresistible. When they begin heating up in the oven, you know dinner will be delicious!

This crowd-pleaser draws families together. During the cooler days, a meal of pot pie easily uses up vegetables from the garden and leftovers. It fills bellies after a long day of work, too. Several pies may be prepared ahead and frozen, too.

Pot pies can be made to serve individually or be one large pie. Either way, the aroma fills the home and warms the heart.   Give this recipe a try. Chicken Pot Pie IX

WEDNESDAY - Sept 16 - Day 6 - Virtual Day for everyone

Since Yesterday was the National Day of Online Learning, it only makes sense that today is our first day for everyone to be learning virtually!  Together we can figure out how to make this a success for everyone!

When we are back together though, groups of people when they get together have to do what sometimes is called “Housekeeping details” which is a term people use to describe something everyone needs to know in order to keep things moving smoothly when everyone is gathered together in one space.  Here is our first Housekeeping detail for the year - not walking into other people when we turn a corner in the hallways:

 

  • When walking in from the bus in the morning, please take personal responsibility for keeping tight and to the right so that other people coming from the other direction are able to keep their distance from you.  
  • When coming in the front door from parent drop off, please walk in a straight line from the door to the opposite wall if you are going to 4th and 5th grade so you do not cut the corner and run into others.  Walking and turning at a 90 degree angle allows you to see other people so that you do not run into each other.  This can also be good advice when walking through a parking lot!

 

Together we can make sure we do whatever it takes to keep things running smoothly!

 

TUESDAY - Sept 15 - Day 5 Cohort A

Did you know that today is designated as National day of online learning - we are together with so many other children and teachers in so many other states that are all figuring out new ways of learning by being online with each other!  Today is also International Democracy Day and we celebrate that with other countries who like to make sure they have the freedoms they would like in place and a fair system of governing themselves without the use of a King or Queen or Dictator.  Sometimes the group of people we are in things together with is very large and it’s something to keep in mind!

 

MONDAY - Sept 14 - Day 4 Cohort A

Together !

BUS #16 will be 15/20 minutes late.  Please hold off on doing attendance and lunch count until after 8:30 this morning.  

All PE classes will be outside today.

 

FRIDAY - Sept 11 - Day 3 Cohort B

Together whatever…  Did you know that the Apple company was once almost ready to go out of business?  In 1997, they decided to accept a partnership with Microsoft who agreed to help them even though they were rivals at the time. Since Apple love to produce new technology, with the help from others, the IPod in 2001 and the first smartphone in 2007 helped make them the company they are today - all because they accepted help from a an unexpected source.  That’s a great first lesson we can all focus on!  The second lesson was - sometimes you have to let go of doing things the old way in order to find a new way of doing things that eventually may be awesome! 

Music will be outdoors in the courtyard today.

PE will be indoors today.

 

THURSDAY - Sept 10 - Day 2 Cohort B

Together...whatever may happen - On this day in History, English adventurer John Smith was told by the settlers of Jamestown, Virginia—the first permanent English settlement in North America, that they wanted him as their council President.   John Smith had won popularity in the colony because of his organizational abilities and effectiveness in working with local Native American groups.  When people have to work together, many groups look to leaders who can encourage everyone.  Together in our student groups this year, who will be our leaders at Horizon that will look for ways to encourage others in whatever way they can?

Music and PE will be indoors today. We hope to head outside for recess, but we’ll keep an eye on the weather, and make an announcement by 10:15

 

WEDNESDAY - Sept 9 - Day 3 Cohort A

Together … whatever may happen.  That’s our theme.  Together can mean lots of things.  Did you know that yesterday was National Ants on a Log day?  For those of you who are not aware that Ants on a Log is the name of a snack that is peanut butter spread on celery with raisins on top of that, now you know and can give it a try at home.  Trying something new and sharing it with others is one way to come together!

Looks like today MAY give us the chance to practice for indoor recess? We’ll keep watching the weather and make the announcement by 10:00. If we do stay inside, students will remain in classrooms to read, play games, or enjoy other low-level activities. 

Music and PE will be indoors today due to the weather.
