This Week’s Theme- Plenty

This week we are looking forward to the Thanksgiving holiday and the plenty that we have to be grateful for. It’s easy in our work to focus on the frustrations we encounter, the challenges we face, and the resources we lack, but really, as educators we have a lot to be thankful for. So this week, we are asking, “What’s your plenty?”

We invite you to share pictures of the things that fill your proverbial basket. Show us the things that sustain you when work gets challenging. Show us the people who lift you up. Show us how you celebrate the gifts you have. Share your visual thank-you’s. When you share your plenty, you fill someone else’s basket as well. Please take a moment to add to the #EVSCstory in this way.

NOTE: You absolutely DO NOT have to match the theme to share a picture with us. Feel free to share any photo that helps us tell the #EVSCstory at ANY time.

This photo was created using Canva and PicMonkey. If you would like to know more about these tools or about photo editing, contact the ICATS.

How to Share Your Photos

There are four ways that you can share the photos that you take with us:

  1. You can share via Instagram – Simply post your Instagram photos using the hashtag #EVSCstory. Feel free to add other hashtags as well to indicate the theme (e.g. #Plenty), or add more information to the caption to help tell the story.
  2. You can share via Twitter – Post your photos to Twitter using the hashtag #EVSCstory. Again, we invite you to add other hashtags, including some of our EVSC hashtags like #evscchat. You can also include our Twitter handle (@evscicats) to ensure we see your pictures as soon as you post.
  3. You can share via Facebook – Visit our ICATS Facebook page, click the Message button in the upper-right corner, and in the text of the message give us your name, school, and the theme for the week. Be sure to attach the photo by clicking the Add Files button. While you are there, we’d love it if you liked our page :) OR, simply share your image on your own Facebook feed, and include the #EVSCstory hashtag.
  4. You can share via email – If social media isn’t your thing, feel free to share your photos directly with us through email. Just attach your photos to an email and send them to [email protected]
