Prince has died and that's a sad thing for many of us. He was almost impossible to classify as an artist; a true original.
Associate Superintendent Michael Tolley will be remaining with the district for now. Bainbridge Island chose another person to be their next superintendent. Interesting thing about this article was that the Bainbridge School Board certainly revealed a lot of their thinking - openly and about all the candidates - to the press which is not what we see here in Seattle.
We're losing an important voice for public education in Senator Rosemary McAuliffe who announced her retirement. What a blow at this important time.

On this Earth Day, a new activity book for kids based on the walking and writings of Henry David Thoreau.
This is why Corinne Hosfeld Smith's new book, "Henry David Thoreau for Kids: His Life and Ideas," is so needed and important. Eloquently written and thoughtfully designed, the book is a perfect way to introduce Thoreau to young readers, and, more importantly, to reintroduce them to the natural world.I left it till the end of the week but this was National Volunteer Week so do take a bow for all the things you do, big and small, to support the schools and work of this district. Thank you very much.
What's on your mind?
