Remembering that horrible day - a school day - back in 2001. I urge you and your children - if they are old enough to remember - to journal a remembrance. It's important documentation about what your family experienced and your future relatives might be grateful for it.

Hey, it's first day of school for SPS kindergartners. It's such an odd thing to let go of your child's hand and realize that you may never really know again how their day goes. When they are in daycare, they aren't always old enough to communicate but kindergarten is old enough.
Curriculum and Instruction Policy Meeting
I am being told that at the Board retreat the Board voted down $3M for new middle school math materials but may spend $2M. I heard that the teachers at Aki Kurose and Mercer - which are doing great things in math with their students - have developed their own plans. And frankly, I think that is as it should be. It's seems folly to spend money on curriculum that teachers barely use.
