Snow in Augusta and snow on the blog! Now I only need snow at home - and the world will be just right!  Yes, I am thrilled to see the snow. I hope that your winter is filled with fun in the snow and safe driving!

Two important announcements today:
Maine Department of Education webpages
The DOE has updating the arts education pages and are located at http://www.maine.gov/doe/arts/. Hopefully you will
For those of you who use Facebook, the Maine Arts Education page (MEArtsEducation) has been created. I invite you to visit and 'like' and comment and spread the information being provided by the list-serv and the blog. This is another opportunity for you to learn from each other. I hear over and over how much teachers feel like they are part of a community of arts education and not as isolated because of the list-serv and blog. I hope that you will share your knowledge on Maine Arts Education Facebook community. Find us at MEArtsEducation! www.facebook.com/MEArtsEducation<http://hwww.facebook.com/MEArtsEducation>.
