I hope your Thanksgiving was DELIGHTFUL! Sweet potatoes continue to be the best part of the meal for me. It was great spending time with my mother! The last few days in November are bringing us mild weather, what a surprise!

WIth December arriving on Thursday I've been thinking: wouldn't it be great if the list-serv could reach 1200 people by January 1st? The list-serv presently has 1152 members and so 48 might not be so difficult. There are approximately 1250 arts educators in Maine so to reach 1200 certainly is possible. I know in order to make this happen I need your help. Please do me a favor and ask your colleagues if they are on the list-serv. When I ask that question I sometimes get a blank stare. My next question to the individual is do you receive an email on Tuesday morning from me at about 5:30 AM? If the answer is no then I know they are not on the list-serv. Try that question out on your colleagues and if you receive the same reaction please have them email me at argy.nestor at maine.gov and I'd be glad to add them.

There is one slight change in the list of blog posts starting today. If a post relates to the Maine's arts assessment initiative I will highlight those... today with red text. 

2012-13 MLTI Screen Savers - Inviting students to participate, deadline Dec. 3rd!
