**Today, students participated in ZUMBA for the second time. It was exciting to see them moving and grooving to the music. Later, students learned more about calculating percentages. They learned real-world-practical examples of when they would need to calculate percentages. Although these problems are tedious and time-consuming, the students were understanding the concepts and trudging through the work! ;-) Keep working hard! Our VLN students started learning how to code with the micro-bits!**
