There is a nip in the air but I am enjoying the clear night skies of  
October and hope you are as well!

Dance educator, Erma Colvin is wondering if anyone studies the  
Renaissance and has a Renaissance fair? If you do or know someone that  
does please contact Erma at erma3_04574 at yahoo.com. She plans on  
developing a unit and would like to learn from you!

Elementary music educator, Mike Drinkwater is seeking resources that  
demonstrate how PE and music relate, how they are and where they are  
similar and where they are different. Also, any units where music and  
PE might compliment each other. If you have resources that might help  
Mike please communicate with him directly at mdrinkwater at msad31.com.

Another record has been broken this week with 912 visitors to the arts  
education blog! WOW!
