Straight From the Lion's Mouth

If you're like me, you received this in email form (plus some that wasn't easy to cut and paste). 

I have to run for now, but I will definitely post more later. But all the kids have for homework tonight is reading for 20 minutes and math!

Former WBE Student Seeks Input for Research

Hi everyone! My name is Jamie Goetz and I am a senior at Carmel High School. I am currently working on my AP Capstone Research Project. For this project, I am researching the importance of encouraging students to recreate outside during the winter. I will be using this research project to study the important effects of recreating outdoors during the winter as well as research how to do so in a safe manner. I will be combining research regarding the powerful effects of nature and the healing qualities of winter with the significance of unstructured play, an interconnected topic not yet explored.
It would be extremely helpful to my project if you could fill out the attached survey if you are currently a parent of an elementary school student. The survey is only 5 questions and will only take 2 to 3 minutes to complete. If you could fill it out within the next week that would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much for your time. I am very excited about this project!
