The Weekly Hoot

April 22-26, 2013

Greetings All -

Wow! What a crazy week it became last week with the internet down! I had no idea how much I relied on technology to communicate! It really opened my eyes to how much the world relies on the internet now. It's crazy how fast that has happened. I remember September 11, 2001 when we had to crowd around a TV to catch the latest news about the World Trade Center Bombings after the fact, and now only 12 1/2 years later, we knew about the Boston Marathon Bombings via our computers or phones seconds after the fact with "almost live" footage. That makes my head spin! Anyway, I hope everyone had a great weekend and is ready for this busy testing week. Remember to check the schedule that Christy put into your boxes for time changes, etc... Thank you for all you do every day.

Soaring With You This Year,


Owl Wings This Week Go To...

Amanda Sechelski for loaning her phone to be used as a "hot spot" for internet when the Go Green Club needed it this week. Thank you for pitching in Amanda. You are definitely "On A Roll! "

Quote of the Week...

"When the going gets tough, the tough get going." - I don't know who said it, but it seemed appropriate for the past couple of weeks! :)
