We are in our second full day here in Xizhou after a long travel day on Saturday. Today is our first "official" day of school, with students working on their Algebra I packets, supporting one another in the learning process.

Another beautiful day in paradise here, with the bluest skies in the world. The air is clean, crisp, and (at nearly 2000 meters above sea level), just thin enough to make even simple exercise a bit more interesting.

The pieces have really come together in such interesting ways. Scott Williams, whose other full-time job--aside from his work on the website--is SAS-Puxi Grade 7 teacher, has put in some sleepless nights lately to bring the online interface to life--what a spectacular job he has done in making it happen.

Good stuff . . . enjoying the ride!

Thanks Craig for all your efforts to share the students' microcampus experiences with us as I enjoy reading about their first impressions. Enjoy the sun, Ellen

What a treat it is to see the Microcampus program continue to develop. I look forward to learning more with and from these amazing students as they explore their world, challenge themselves, and learn to handle themselves outside The Bubble of their usual routines.
