Over the weekend I traveled to the North Maine woods to Libby Camps<http://www.libbycamps.com> which is about 30 miles north of Mount Katahdin. Saturday had a rainy start but that didn't keep me inside for long. It was wonderful walking along Millinocket Lake and collecting a variety of driftwood, feathers, and pinecones. I hope you are enjoying this mild weather and have had a chance to enjoy the beautiful sunrises.

Periodically an arts teacher sends an email and asks "who is using a standards based report card"? If you are one of those teachers who is, please email and let me know. If you can send a copy of the report card, please do! Thanks so much!
Thank you for all you do to provide an outstanding arts education!
Make it a great day,
