Hello parents, teachers and students!
Well, we’ve almost made it to the first break of the school year with Labor Day on Monday. How has the year been for you so far?
As the holiday weekend nears, that also means that many area school districts are now close to implementing their phase-in plans for returning students to campus. KSAT has been in contact with the districts and has each of their varied approaches, which can be found by clicking here.
In this week’s KSAT Kids’ teacher spotlight, we highlight Margarita Santellanes, a Northside ISD custodian who has a work ethic that many could learn from. She has collected supplies, bags and used clothing for kids in her community and has also set-up motivational signs to make sure the kids feel special.
And although students were introduced to virtual learning back in March, it’s still different beginning the school year virtually. In a cute KSAT Kids video, Rooney, daughter of KSAT anchor Stephanie Serna, gives her advice on virtual learning and offers tips to other students.
Are you looking for a fun educational activity for your kids? Check out Meteorologist Kaiti Blake’s latest home science lab, where you can create an erupting volcano and learn of acids and bases. This week we also have a quiz to test your knowledge as a 6th grader.
For those students needing additional schooling help the San Antonio Public Library is offering back-to-school resources to help with their lessons. We also have a list of places offering free Wi-Fi for students and their families during the pandemic.
Stay safe and wash your hands, everybody!
