With the four thin pages of different colors and the manilla perm card at the back. There was a column for comments. I remember engraving the comments to reflect "below grade level but working hard...

I first voted in 68

that was before 18 year olds could vote. I remember registering others at my college. I think I got 25 cents a head.

Newsweek article

says over two Billion dollars have been scammed and stolen from California EDD.

I'm responding because you deserve some kind of an answer. But I'm pretty stumped. To some extent, it depends on the SES of your students. Poverty kids have not a lot in the way of materials...

That is great!

I suggest you post your question to the BusyBoard since that gets much more traffic than this board. The thread before this is from August.

You might also post to boards for your grade levels...

Good on that teacher for advising the superintendent.

There should be a school wide announcement asking (at least the staff) who had 15 minute or more contact with this person. Depending on a...

I've teased about a Flowbee

A nice, quiet day

Great smells in the air as DH finishes up the Thanksgiving prep. He's the best cook in the house and gladly took over doing the feast some years ago. I am always grateful for him.

Mama drove an army truck

with German POWs during WWII. I'm not sure if she could drive before or the army taught her--I think it was the army. She joined young and Cleveland had a pretty good transit system.

is to arrange the account so that the "child" who may have no interest or ability for college won't be able to collect all the money at 18 and do whatever with it.

There was a business advisor on...
