Tired of all the Zoom calls recently? I think everyone is in the same boat, but fortunately, there are other ways to use the platform that are allowing some members of our community to get together and decompress after a stressful week. Today's submission, sent in by Ms. Picetti, shows her way of using Zoom to socialize and relax: "Here is a screenshot of my friends on Zoom: Ms. Ignaffo, Ms. Bamburg, Monte, and Ms. Benjamin. We try our best to meet on Zoom once a week to vent, catch up, and celebrate our successes. Without my crew, this time…

Thank you all for making the Daily Drop what it is! Today's post represents the statistics of the Quad website since we first launched the Daily Drop... take a look at the huge difference in traffic on the Quad website! Thanks to all of you, we've created community and brought attention to student and faculty content more than ever before on the site. Coming soon, a new Quad website will replace this one before the end of the year. Look forward to that and the last few Drops of the year. If you haven't submitted yet, this is the time!…

Hi all! Today's Drop to kick off the week is a slideshow presentation of the photography that Ms. Woods's students have have been creating that speaks to the time that we are living in. Please take some time this morning to look through these creative pieces. On top of that, Ms.Q's students have been creating original musical compositions to accompany these images and we plan on sharing those with the community soon, so stay tuned for that! We're looking forward to seeing what you have for the rest of the week.

The dog theme continues everyone! Today's picture, sent in by Ms. Rench, is perfect for a Sunday morning. "Our dog, Frances, really knows how to stock up for long days at home!!! Not to mention that when it all gets to be too much..she reminds us that it just might be time to take a nap!!" Good advice! Let's all remember that we need to take care of ourselves and stay healthy as we enter these final few weeks. Tomorrow, we'll be kicking off the week with some more student features— stay tuned!

Today's submission is a great way for us to reflect about what is passing through our heads in these moments. Mr. Schultz put together an assignment with his students through Wordle that is very insightful, here' what he has to say about it: "I have done a variety of reflections with my students the past six weeks and then plugged the terms into a 'wordle?' and created both of these images.  I think they are worth sharing.  The prompt for the first wordle was to list ten objects that you have a new relationship with, only five can have a…

Happy Late Start Wednesday to everyone! Today's pictures are your classic cat vs fish scenario, but with a twist! Here's Dr. Lopez to tell us more about it. "While working from home during the SIP, I turned an old iMac computer into a fish tank. Then Ms. Clinton told me about poor Gilbert, the goldfish, that was left alone in the Biology lab. I rescued him from total boredom with no students around and now he lives with me in my office upstairs. As you can see, my cat, named Mac is curious about the fish in the iMac. There…
