Eighth Grade Homework for May 18-22, 2020

Dear Eighth Grade Students,
 
For 100 points of Extra credit in the class of your choice (that I teach):
We love our volunteers and we want to show them how much we appreciate them from a distance. Please take a picture or short video clip of yourself holding a sign that says something like, “Thank you, volunteers!” or “We love our volunteers.” or “Volunteers are superheroes.” You can do a short dance or gymnastics and wear your favorite costume. All of these will be blended together in one full video for all to watch next Wednesday, May 20th.
 
Please email your photo or short video (in MP4 format) to Mr. Anderson at danderson@school.assumption.org and Ms. G. The video should be no more than 5 seconds long and photos can be in any format. Thank you.
