Documentary Brunch this Sunday with the film, Girl Rising. It's a documentary about 9 girls in Nepal, India, Cambodia, Haiti, Egypt, Ethiopia, Peru, Sierra Leone and Afghanistan. Go be inspired. And free mini-cupcakes. SIFF Cinema Uptown, all ages.
Fun fact for the kids - apparently crocodiles can climb trees...up to thirty feet. (Somewhere a bird is saying, "You've got to be kidding me.")
First person story about a mom in Colorado trying to opt her child out of state testing from Slate.
Storycorps story about a teacher and a student that she didn't know was homeless. It's about relationships and it means all the difference for this student.
Director Carr has a Community meeting on Saturday at Bethany Community Church at 8:30 am that will end promptly at 10 am as she will be leaving for the all-day School Board retreat from 10:30 am to 4:30 pm in room 2700. Agenda here. The Board retreat is open to the public.
I find this agenda to seemingly be a bit of a tussle between what the Board may see as a "priority" and what staff does vis a vis the Strategic Plan. I'm sure they will work together to find their direction along the same path. They will be discussing later start times around 1:30 pm.
What's on your mind?
