Protect Yourself - Install a Car Camera Today!

Societal politeness is becoming a rare event.  An increasing number of persons can be seen texting and driving, driving aggressively or making poor decisions with last minute lane changes.  Some drivers, with their high powered electric vehicles, are utilizing their vehicles' capacity to engage in more risky driving behaviors.  With technology advancing, it is important to protect yourself in the event of a crash or angry driver.  Installing a front and rear facing dash camera can make all the difference ensuring you are protected and made whole from another persons misjudgment.

According to Forbes Advisor, in 2020, a total of 35,766 fatal car accidents occurred on roadways across the United States. Another 1,593,390 crashes resulted in injuries and 3,621,681 caused property damage In 2021, 8% of fatal crashes were attributed to distracted driving, resulting in 3,522 deaths and an estimated 362,415 injuries.

Road rage has become a serious issue that can lead to accidents, injuries, and even fatalities. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), aggressive driving is a factor in 66% of traffic fatalities. In 2023, 92% of Americans reported witnessing an act of road rage in the past year, and 89% reported being the victim of such an act. In the United States, 12,610 injuries and 218 murders have been attributed to road rage over a seven-year period

We recently installed a Pumpa Dash Camera. You can see the quality in the video below during a recent road rage incident we experienced.  We hope this NEVER happens to you; this behavior is extremely scary to be involved in.

Installing a front and rear dash camera in your car can help protect you from accidents and road rage incidents. It can provide evidence in case of an accident, and it can also deter aggressive drivers from engaging in dangerous behavior.

State Testing and a letter of encouragement

State Testing CCSS SBAC is starting next week for our area.  This semester, my son's fourth grade teacher has asked that I write him a letter of encouragement.  She gave us a few weeks notice. I have, in the past few days, written a few handwritten notes of encouragement. Then, I would wake up the next day realizing that it was not loving enough and second guessing myself. This task has been a little hard for me.  Then, the final email reminder came from the teacher. It read as follow: "This is just a friendly reminder to please send a letter of encouragement to your student to be opened this coming Monday, May 1.

This time, I made it classroom friendly and left out lots of the I love you's and all the mushy stuff I had written before. The letter went something like this:  Dea

How to make a California Mission Model.

Learn how to make a California Mission Model at home or in the classroom. We made this project as part of the California Public School Fourth grade requirement in a group setting. Continue to read on to get the supply list and instructions for a successful mission model. On an ordinary day, I was reminded how amazing kids really are when there are no limits. Just as equally amazing are the teachers who guide them and teach them everyday.  I am very thankful for the opportunity that I was given as a parent volunteer.  The day was like a beautiful dance where parents, teachers and students came together for a common goal. The goal was to make models of California Missions from a simple picture and lots of cardboard.  I can honestly say the goal was reached and everyone deserved an "A".
