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…

Today's Daily Drop brings us back to the fun narratives of our lives that we have the opportunity to experience due to our increased time with family. K-Mo recounts one such moment from a few weeks back, and a humorous takeaway that we can all interpret in our own way: "One day last week my daughter Leah (age five) went to my classroom in Campbell and poked around a bit, and then went for a walk through the nearby streets of Atherton.  In my classroom, she opened up a cabinet and found some goofy hats, which she wanted to wear…

Today's Daily Drop is a great way for us to get re-energized before we start off this busy week. Above, you will see the hard work of SHP Faculty and Staff through a picture taken by Mr. Johns. "Sacred Heart Faculty and Staff have been hard at work this past week laser cutting 3,000 face shields for Maker Nexus, a community-run makerspace in Sunnyvale.

Happy birthday Dr. Slafter! Today we celebrate Dr. Slafter's unflinching commitment to the farm through some photos which Mr. Eiras submitted. Here's what he has to say about the amazing work that has been done at the farm! "When I was at school today I decided to take some pictures of the farm animals and some new babies Since [Saturday] is Dr. Slafter's birthday... There are a couple shots of a mom and baby so with Mother's Day on Sunday this should work out great. Dr Slafter has taken such good care of the farm animals while the shelter in…

    For many of us, we're spending more time than ever before with our younger siblings or our kids now that we are at home. What better of a Drop could fit this theme than Ms. Tsutsui's submission about what's going on in her house. Let's get some of her help to understand this one of a kind art! "Mrs. Woods photography students inspired me to send in some of the art that has been filling up the Tsutsui house in the past couple of weeks.  The mixed media piece with dangling rubber bands is what my daughter believes a…
