Giving Tuesday

I had to look this up ….. from Wikipedia

Giving Tuesday, often stylized as #GivingTuesday for purposes of hook activism, refers to the Tuesday after U.S. Thanksgiving in the United States. It is a movement to create an international day of giving at the beginning of the Christmas and holiday season. Giving Tuesday was started in 2012 by the 92nd Street Y and the United Nations Foundation as a response to commercialization and consumerism in the post-Thanksgiving season (Black Friday and Cyber Monday).[1][2]

As you may know a school day is about 6 1/2 hours long, depending on the grade. What you may not know is what needs students have and what resources are available to them. For our November CHOICE coalition meeting on November 2 (1 pm) , administrators, school resource officers and others from the school community will share what they know best.

The location of the meeting has changed to the Clover Park School District Administration building, room 6B.

TNT: Caught in an industrial zone: District considers closing Lakewood’s Woodbrook Middle School

The Clover Park School District board will get a recommendation in January that Woodbrook Middle School be closed. District officials say the 53-year-old middle school has reached the end of its useful life, but some community and education leaders are blaming Lakewood officials, saying a change in zoning to help develop a business park forced the closure.
