From SPS Communications:
Leschi Elementary School will receive a $10,000 grant from tech companies, Softchoice and Lenovo in order to expand the school’s technology development and student learning in classrooms. The money will be used to purchase iPad Airs and OSMO kits for all intermediate classrooms. Students will be able to use the educational tools every day.It's the Lunar New Year (Year of the Rooster); here's Parent Map's list of activities for kids. I recommend the ones in the International District.
Once again, Washington State is near the top for the number of board-certified teachers, nearly 15% for our state and fourth in the nation. Congrats to all the teachers who went thru this long and difficult process.
Know a great teacher? From OSPI:
2018 Teacher of the Year nominations are now open
Every year the Washington State Teacher of the Year (TOY) program selects one outstanding educator to serve as the Washington State Teacher of the Year. OSPI accepts one nomination from each of Washington’s nine educational service districts (ESDs). A state winner is selected from this group of regional nominees. For more information about the program or to nominate, visit: http://bit.ly/2018ToYNom.Keep those calls going to the GOP senators in the Legislature about extending the deadline for the levy cliff. My own calls show some interest (especially when I told them how much school districts in their own districts would lose.)
What's on your mind?
