Tomorrow, Saturday the 26th is the Board Retreat from 9:30 am to 2:45 pm at JSCEE. And look, they will be discussing (again): communications protocol, norms at Board meetings, use of Robert's Rules of Order in the morning and actual district work like governance priorities and Superintendent SMART Goals and discussion of plan to close the opportunity gap. This kind of agenda when at least three Board members will be gone in about two months? I look forward to the next Board who will (hopefully) have better retreats.
Well, will you look at that? Director Sharon Peaslee is finally having a community meeting. It's Sunday, Sept. 27th from 3 pm to 4:45 pm at Northgate Public Library.
If you are in the northend tomorrow and want to talk education with a legislator, Rep. Gerry Pollet will be talking to folks at Cafe Kopi 8056 Lake City Way NE from 10am till noon.
Also tomorrow, more legislators talking to the public - this time Reps Reuven Carlyle and Gael Tarleton with "Coffee and Conversation" in four Seattle neighborhoods.
The northwest Seattle lawmakers would like to hear from residents of the
36th legislative district – Ballard, Queen Anne, Magnolia, Belltown,
Fremont, Phinney Ridge, Greenwood, and Blue Ridge – about the issues
they care about.
Northwest Teaching for Social Justice is having a conference on Saturday, October 17th from 8 am to 4:30 pm.
Amazing 7-mile scale model of solar system in Nevada drybed - show this to the kids.
Also cool and interesting is Exhibit Growth, a 4-minute experience at Westlake Park, starting today thru October 4th.
Umpqua Bank’s experiential Exhibit:Growth is an interactive exploration
of human potential that takes visitors on a transformative emotional
journey. Using large-scale, motion activated digital technology, the
work invites visitors to embark on a journey of personal discovery while
demonstrating the power and beauty of a collective experience. The work
invites visitors to discover a unique world created by their individual
movements and energy – and how each builds on those who have gone
before to form a powerful, connective landscape.
Finally, one dad's joke/commentary on Common Core - he apparently made his check out to his child's elementary school using Common Core math.
What's on your mind?
