    Dear Shona,
    I gave my grade two class your profile, Karim’s parents sent you a message saying good luck and keep safe. Karim’s mother asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up and he replied
    ”I want to be like shona and explore the world” everyone at school is excited for you. Dr. Greenwald called when she saw your photograph in the Gazette; she was pleased to know someone famous! She commented on your beautiful teeth.

    It is Thursday and I hope you are having a great time. Sea sick????
    We will be setting up in the main foyer on Monday to field questions from the students at large. We will be starting up CO-Tuesdays and continuing with the fundraisers that the “ground crew” are working on. Pizza sales, bag sales and general information on the lunch hour will be happening. Is there a website with a specific video you have made that we can play in the foyer on Monday?

    Take care, and if you feel sick, get to the side of the boat quickly.

    Hi Shona! I have a small question for you. How many hours of daylight are there nowadays and how does that contribute to the melting of the ice?
    Take care and can’t wait to see your pictures!
