Wednesday Folder – March 9, 2016

Hello Thunderbirds!

What a lovely rainy morning, rainy days in Austin make me happy. I hope they do for you as well. You know what else makes me happy?

Spring Break!

It’s next week! Whether you are traveling, entering in the madness of SXSW (or avoiding it at all costs), or spending a fabulous staycation at home – I hope you all enjoy next week!

Couple notes before you check out…

Movie Night at THES

THES is hosting a free film screening of “Most Likely To Succeed” on March 31st! Please register so we can plan for the correct numbers. Share with friends even if they don’t go to THES – we would love for this to be a wide reaching community event!

Most Likely To Succeed (MLTS) offers an inspiring look at what students and teachers are capable of – if we have the vision and courage to transform our schools.

The goal is to help schools move forward by re-imaging their purpose, and creating learning experiences that prepare students for life.

Please register here! Doors open at 5:30pm. Childcare will be available. We will provide hot dogs and water, feel free to bring a side or dessert to enjoy! Stick around afterwards for a brief Q&A with Education Leaders.

Spring Forward on March 13

Don’t forget to change your clocks an hour forward (ugh). At least we get a week to acclimate before those early school mornings begin again.

See you in a couple weeks!
