* Thanks to everyone for your flexibility in making Picture Day successful.


* Next week in planning (Elem on Tuesday and Middle on Wednesday), we will reflect on how your first Expedition has gone and look ahead to your plans/vision for the next Expedition.


* Our final book study session is next Monday. We will convene in Sonja/Annah's room for 15-ish minutes and then breakout into our small groups. Bring whatever you need for a productive book study session.

* A powerful essay from Alfie Kohn about grades. I especially like the way he uses the word "invisible" in the first paragraph of the "In the Meantime" section.
