I am meeting with a representative of the Walton Family Foundation about the bike program soon. If you could ask your P.E. teachers to provide some information about the program's impact on students, I would appreciate it. It doesn't have to be a dissertation, only a couple of sentences about how many students participate, what they see as the importance of the program and effect on students, and any issues or wishes they would like me to communicate.

Thank you for participating to help support the Samaritan House Snack Pack program. They have stepped up their support of NWA schools and do great work. I've attached the flyer feel free to distribute to community groups, etc. Let me know what you need.
As always let me know when great things are happening in your buildings, if we don't frame the conversation - some else is going to do it for us.
Last week I spent some time talking with teachers interested in applying for 21st Century Grants from the district and didn't make the rounds as I would like. This week I'll be at Fulbright to speak with students about organizing a 5K run in the neighborhood. Can't wait to hear their ideas.
