Turtles are Happy!
Check out the turtles having a fun day
End of March Updates
Hello everyone! I have added some discussion questions in google classroom so people can check in with me easily that way. Let me know what you are doing to occupy your time, share a funny story, or just say hello!

I will be available to chat through this discussion thread from 2-3:30 each day.

The turtles are great and having fun in their tank. Swimming and eating like usual.
