Grateful to spend time with these vets who sometimes may doubt if people remember what they did for our country. A friend flew on this past trip as a guardian and her experience was priceless. Meeting these heroes after seeing her pictures and videos throughout the trip was unforgettable.

Thanks for inspiring healthy teacher, students, families, and friends.
Many teachers and students looked at Friday, June 16th as the last day of school; although, other educators, including the CUE Rock Star teachers, looked at it as an opportunity to meet up with innovative teachers in a fun learning environment. These two days involved exploring new technology, learning new skills, and building community. The CUE Rock Star Camp is an awesome opportunity to practice those next steps in your life long learning journey, and the perfect way to start summer feeling revitalized and inspired by fellow CUE Rock Stars!I was honored to be a part of the CUE faculty this year and grateful to lead 6 sessions this camp.
We had fun moving through the first day with EduNinja™ Nutrition, Movement, and Mindfulness activities.
Some teachers were a little sore from day one but that didn’t stop them from moving on day two with the team Buncee photo scavenger hunt.
Here’s what our sessions looked like: http://bit.ly/2sqV1hs
Take a look at some of the Buncee scavenger hunt creations.
