At my home in the mid-coast yesterday the tulips bloomed! YAHOOOOO, they are gorgeous!
And to top that off the humming bird is back perching on the feeder. Another YAHOOOOO! Nothing like the lime green grass as a background to the intense red.

**From Nancy Rowe, Camden Hills High School music teacher:
"I will be presenting a "roundtable" discussion on "Sports Bands" at the upcoming MMEA Conference. It would be very helpful to my presentation if you are a high school band director to go to the link and provide feedback for my session. http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/YJNTLQK Please fill it out even if you do not perform for athletic events. Thanks for your help!" 
If you have questions please contact Nancy at nancy_rowe at fivetowns.net
** From Edie Greiner, Fort Fairfield art teacher:
"In the fall I will have a profoundly visually impaired kindergartner in my art class. I'm looking for ideas/lesson plans/experiences/resources for working with this child. I'd appreciate anything you can offer to me at EGreiner at msad20.org
