Lillian--

This is so interesting.  I'm sending it out over the
OWP listserv so other teachers can read about it. 
This is such a great workshop.   Please let me know
numbers or parents and number of hours so I can count
it on our NWP report this fall.

Is anyone else doing anything special with parents? 
That''s a whole other area we can consider including
in our presentations.

Anyone who wants to write an e-mail to the whole
listserv, just type in 
[log in to unmask] in the "To" spot and everyone will
get it.

To reply to everyone and not just the writer, type
[log in to unmask] in the To: section of your e-mail
then I won't need to decide whether to forward it to
everyone else.


Janis
