This Week’s Theme- Grateful

For the short week of November 24-26, we are focusing on gratitude. The Thanksgiving holiday is always a wonderful reminder that despite the many obstacles we face, we can always find something to be grateful for. We hope you will take a moment to reflect on the many joys and gifts that our profession brings, and then we hope you will capture and share photos that tell that part of your #EVSCstory with us.

This photo was shot with a mobile phone in Mrs. Wilhelmus’ classroom at North High School and features some of her AP Language students. The photo was edited in iPhoto and Fotor, a great web app for photo editing.

 

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. #Grateful), 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 :)
  4. You can share via Google Drive- If social media isn’t your thing, feel free to share your photos directly with us through Google Drive. Use this link to access our shared folder. You will need to then click the blue Open in Drive button. Then drag your photo into the window, or click the red upload arrow in the upper-left to search for your photo and click Open. It would help us if you would name your photo with the week’s theme and your name and school.

How to Check Out the Photos
