Message from the Director

Dear Learners and Families,

What’s happening at EG?

The final week of iLEAD Online went well. Many learners showed up and performed well under crunch time. Be ready to see a grade at your check-in this week!

Unfortunately, our Q&A workshop has been pushed back to Wednesday, March 6th. In this workshop, where you will be able to ask us questions related to school or life. Plan ahead and think of something interesting that you’ve always wanted to know more about, and we can learn together! Make sure to attend the Q&A as it is the only day this week to receive participation in workshops. There will be NO SCHOOL next Thursday or Friday, March 7th and 8th.

Finally, labs are beginning! Check your email for your link to join your next Google classroom. You will have one month to explore your online class/project in Google Classroom. Your lab for March is scheduled according to your individualized pacing plan. Your pacing plan can be found at the bottom of any weekly check-in sheet.

Learners, please reach out on days that you are absent. My direct line is (661) 537-3719.

Fun Fact: National Grammar Day

FUN FACT Picture (1)

National Grammar Day is observed across the United States each year on March 4th.

According to Global Language Monitor, the estimated number of words in the English language is 1,025,109. There is some controversy over that figure, but it’s safe to say it is over a million.

Language is something to celebrate. Some people might suggest that grammar is a set of rules for language, but it is a system for understanding language. Understanding the system and the structure helps us to understand each other better and can help us to learn new languages.

There are some hard and fast rules of grammar, though. Even some of those come up for debate from time to time. Have you ever heard of the Oxford comma?
