Last Post for 2007

Today's post is the final entry in The Comp Book for 2007. We'll be taking winter break from Dec. 21 - Jan. 2 to celebrate, ring in the new year and recharge for what will hopefully be a great 2008.

Before we bid you "Happy Holidays," here are a couple of things worth noting:
  • Community farmers and environmental proponents will be urging Washington state lawmakers to consider legislation that would ease state laws so that school districts could purchase produce from local farms. The campaign is called "Local Farms -- Healthy Kids" and you can learn more here.
  • The U.S. Department of Justice is sponsoring a National Missing Children's Day Poster Contest for fifth-graders to help raise awareness and teach children about safety. State entires are due by March 14 and should be submitted to Susan Miller, Washington State Patrol, Missing Person Unit, PO Box 2347, Olympia, WA 98507-2347.
  • Is the 180-day school year going the way of the rotary-dial phone? That's the theory behind this Dec. 17 editorial that appeared in the USA Today.
As always, let us know what's on your mind about these topics or any other K-12 or principal leadership issues.

Happy Holidays!
