The GREATS! on Vacation

Thank you Johnson family for the vacation photo demonstrating the Expected Schoolwide Learning Results. The Johnson’s were fishing in a stocked lake near Chang Mai, Thailand. And yes, it is a real fish! In fact, they caught and released a dozen of these giants. Tiffany writes:

Perhaps we were self-directed learners by trying something new. We were also thinkers and problem solvers by trying to bring those 20 kg. Mekong catfish to shore. : )

My own GREATS! photo shown below demonstrates our family as thinkers and problem solvers. The driveway to our house in Thailand is so steep the water truck cannot access the water storage area. Solution? We build a water storage unit near the main road so our water can be pumped up to the house from there. There is no truth to the rumor that Norm is in the dog house.
