Good morning parents, teachers and students!
As we make it through another week, it is important to note the good work that our local school districts are doing in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Librarians and career and technical education teachers in the North East Independent School District recently helped healthcare workers by producing facemasks. Way to go!
This Sunday is Easter, and this year will be unlike any other. To that end, KSAT Kids found a local mom’s group that is encouraging a new type of egg hunt that is fun, safe and social-distancing approved.
In our KSAT Kids spotlight, we take a look at SA Live executive producer Diana Winters’ daughter, 11-year-old Molly, who shares her recipe for “amped up" ramen. It’s a recipe made by a kid, for kids!
And with many children stuck at home, a big focus is how to keep them busy. But what about staying active and healthy? KSAT Kids recently covered several virtual workouts and fitness initiatives that can help keep their bodies moving. Click on the links or keep scrolling below to learn more.
Calling all teachers and parents: send in your photos of your “classroom” at home. With so many students doing distance learning, this should be fun to see!
Stay safe and wash your hands, everybody!
