SSS Department Trivia

Week 1 of Round 3 - Who am I?

WHO AM I? "Me, playgrounds, and daycares are a recipe for disaster."


The answer is Jessica Lecertua!


The following guessed this correctly: Pam, Jesse, and Bev!


Scoreboard

Pam - 1

Jesse - 1

Bev - 1

Here is what Jessica has to say about her story:

When I was 5 I slipped on metal stairs with a cement edge at a local park. Once my chin hit the edge I began bleeding significantly. Daycare attendants told me to put some snow on it to stop the bleeding. Later that day I was sent to the ER and received several stitches. I still have a scar under my chin. Later that year I broke two fingers while attempting a walking handstand during recess. Then, shortly after that, I broke both of my collarbones at the same time, while practicing a back flip on the jungle gym rings. I couldn't lift my arms up.

    Please note! Do not forward email trails to families.

    When communicating with families, never forward an email trail. Instead start a new email to the recipient. Always be aware of what you are sending to any recipient.

    Awesome Outlook strategy videos

    A teammate of ours, who will remain nameless, shared two great tutorial videos on how to improve one's usage of Outlook. I watched them and thought they offered great tips. I learned several new-to-me features, too!


    Converting Emails into Task & Calendar Item in Outlook


    The “Today” Task List


    Thank you, masked crusader!

    Alex's Trip

    Several of you have asked about my trip in March, so I will share a little bit here.


    It was great. I started off in Paris. I went to the Louvre, Arc de Triomphe, Norte Dame, Palace of Versailles, Pantheon, and many other neat places. I ate a lot of croissants and macaroons!


    I then flew to Florance. While there, I took a bus ride into the Tuscany region and visited Siena, San Gimignano, and Pisa. Visited Il Duomo and Galleria dell' Accademia in Florence.


    After just three days, we took a train to Rome, where we visited the Sistine Chapel and the Vatican, the Colosseum, the Pantheon, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, the Roman Forum, and made handmade pasta and tiramisu (with a cooking class) for dinner one night.


    I consumed a copious amount of carbs while on this trip! However, I walked many, many miles each day so I felt justified in my eating.


    I have tons of pictures, but I will share a couple of my favorites below.
