Tuesday funny - apparently Carly Fiorina, the former head of and failed Senate candidate, announced she was running for President for the GOP. She forgot to register the domain name
"carly fiorina. org." A former tech CEO forgets to do this? Whoops.
Today is Give BIG day. Please consider stretching your donation dollars by donating to your favorite non-profit (especially for public education but please, not LEV, the Alliance, Lakeside, etc.).
(Update: if you give to any group connected to Seattle Schools, your receipt will come back looking as though you gave to the Alliance. The Alliance is the fiscal agent for many SPS groups but your entire donation will go to the entity you noted.)
(New update: Give BIG nearly to $8M and there's still half the day left to give. Here's a plug for the Ingraham Rocket Club.)
The Seattle International Film Festival is starting on May 14th with a raft of great movies. Kevin Bacon will be honored (Footloose!). Here's a link to Films 4 Families. I think the line-up of films for kids looks especially strong this year. And, there's a film from Aardman Animation (who made Wallace and Gromit) called Shaun the Sheep.
There is a free workshop for teachers on Digital Storytelling.
Teachers will be introduced to the Adobe Youth Voices online curriculum
and get hands-on practice with mobile apps using Adobe VOICE and Adobe
CLIP. Clock hours will be available for participating educators. Space
is limited and registration is required.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a seat at this Workshop.
Also there's a workshop for kids ages 9-12 - Crash Kids is a one-day event from movie concept to movie screening. Full scholarships are available for F/RL students.
Updating - the Operations Committee meeting of the Whole today is all about the Capital Programs update and 2014 Capital Programs Annual Report.
What's on your mind?
