So the question is: how can we use this camera to improve our learning this year?

Here's a tool you can play with this summer.  It's a 30 year timelapse of the entire world!  Here it is above Eminence, Kentucky:

Have a Great Summer!

Fifth Graders,

You have made my first year here in Eminence be a great one.  I'm really looking forward to this summer, but first I'd like to leave you all with some advice that has helped me my whole life:

First, be kind to everyone you meet.

Second, work hard at everything you do.  You won't always succeed, but hard work always pays off in the end.

Third, be humble -- Try celebrating the achievements of others before your own.  You'll be amazed at how it makes you feel.

I can't wait to see you all in the August!  In the meantime, enjoy this serene beach scene:
