Friday Open Thread
|From a classroom in Chicago|
If you missed my updates on the Growth Boundaries (from this week's Work Session), you might want to check them out.
There are two community meetings with directors tomorrow and I suggest you check into one if you boundary concerns:
Director Geary, NE Library from 10 am to noon
Director Blanford, Douglass-Truth Library from 10 am to noon
An early heads up for an event for kids with autism - Sensitive Santa in Issaquah.
There will be a "Bell Time Hearing" at Catherine Blaine Elementary on Monday, Nov. 14th at 4:30 pm. Sue Peters and Pegi McEvoy, assistant superintendent of Operations, will attend to hear about the bell time changes are affecting students. As well, there will be discussion of the additional 20 mintues to be added to the school day next year and late start/early dismissal one day a week.
(Editor's note: this came to me via a reader. Normally, a hearing is a legally required meeting (for example when the district wants to pass its budget or put up a levy) and I do not believe that is what this is.)
The Seattle International Film Festival is having its Seattle Shorts program this weekend. Here's one item of interest for parents:
