Hi Panther Families -
I hope you are finding some success with e-learning today...with minimal anxiety. As I told one of our HS students today, stay flexible, remain open-minded, and try to learn something new from this experience. Please share your learning experiences with us - our social media platforms are: @cusd1_panthers (Twitter) and @lelandCUSD1 (Facebook).
Trying to keep as 'on task' as possible, I wanted to share some information we were going to post this week. Saturday, 3/21 is World Down Syndrome Day https://www.worlddownsyndromeday2.org/ and each day we had a DS fact to share with our students. Additionally, Friday was designated as Crazy Sock Day since were not going to be in school on 3/21. Let's show our Panther love and support and participate SATURDAY, 3/21 in the Lots of Socks 2020 movement. Tag Leland CUSD in all your crazy sock posts!
Mon & Tue DS facts:
Monday: Down syndrome (DS) is a genetic condition where a person is born with an extra copy of chromosome 21; they have 47 instead of 46 chromosomes. This additional genetic material changes the course of development and causes the characteristics that are associated with Down Syndrome.
Tuesday: One in every 691 babies in the U.S. is born with Down syndrome, making it the most common chromosomal condition. Roughly 25% of families in the U.S. are affected by Down syndrome.
