I have a really bad habbit. That is if I get something in my mind. I don't stop until I achieve it...
So, we have this great little weekly mailer that goes out in our area every Tuesday. I enjoy the information that it shares, Mostly because it is just local stuff. It has a different place to eat featured each week, ok they have to review the same places over and over, but the "critic" does try something different each time he goes back. Also, there is a "Sound Off" page(s) that lets people whine about what ever is bugging them that week. I get my best laughs from it.
Anyway, I have been thinking for oh...since last March or April that this would be a great place to let parents know what was going on in the two school districts in our area. What fun activites such as carnivals, red ribbon week, ect were happening stuff like that. What do you think? Lunch menu, Weekly Announcments...get the picture.
Well, that was the pitch I gave the two editors...and believe it or not...THEY LIKED IT! So, MY first deadline is in two weeks! I haven't done anything like this since I was in High School, in other words a very long time!! But, I am excited and looking forward to a new place in life.
I will take any suggestions that you think you would like to see as a parent to help you manage your child's school week. KEEP YOUR FINGERS CROSSED!
