Note your old Bluetooth hands-free earpiece is legal. I always wear mine on the left ear so it’s plainly visible.
Di says: If your child 8-18 years of age is interested in acting, and all the aspects of live theater production. Contact: email@example.com* as soon as possible. Children's Theater Workshop starts at 9am on Monday 7/24/17.
Due to some family issues, we have had several children notify us that they will not be able to attend. Short notice...yes, but if this works for you...your child/children can take their spaces.

Educator Andrea Jones links a Washington Post article on the topic, saying: I love that our school has a garden program!
How gardening can build healthier, happier kids
And: I'm proud to be a part of a school led by a principal and full of faculty, admin, staff and PTO who value hands-on learning, understand that each child is a unique learner, and work hard to give our children more than books and desks and tests. State and federal standards make it difficult but awesome teachers find a way. I'm excited to see even more hands-on and child-directed learning opportunities in the future.

A reader asks: What's the difference between back to school day and first day of school?

TES & TMS School Supply Lists here. THS: Each class will have a specific set of supplies and recommendations. These will be shared on the first day of school.
Posted July 12 by Toledo School District: The water supply project will begin construction at THS on Monday (July 17) and will continue through August. There will be no water service (including restroom facilities) at THS until late August while this project is completed. In addition, the gym floors at THS will be refinished during the next week. During this time, the gym will be closed to all use until the finish has cured. The quality of the finish depends on us staying out of the gym.
