Quote of the Day:  “It isn't what you have in your pocket that makes you thankful, but what you have in your heart.” - Annonymous

Juniors - We will tutor in the flex area for students who need it for tests today.  In the classroom students will work on finishing their Thankful Letter -or- Road Trip Nation Curriculum.  We will watch a couple of these interviews:

Andrew Steele - AstroBiologist
"Life is a gift. And your life is a gift. No one has the right to tell you how to use that gift. And no one has the right to try and place you into a mold or into a position that they see right for you. You have already got the biggest gift there is: you are made of stars." - Andrew Steele

Ann Telnaes, Puliter Prize-Winning Political Cartoonist, Humors Edge

"Just be ready to look at other doors. I had a lot of doors open to me that I never thought about when I was a student, and I took them. It worked out really well."  - Ann Telnaes

William Morris, Glassblower & Artist, William Morris Glass
"Would you rather have one year of utter vitality, or would you have ten years of just sort of ho-hum mediocrity? Either choice is fine. . . . Live the choice that you make." - William Morris

Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson, Drummer, The Roots
Philadelphia, PA"I don't know if anyone who's truly successful feels a sense of completion. I think it's just a constant mission to stay ahead."

Sophomores will finish their Thankful Letters and Watch Road Trip Nation interviews.  They will be thinking up questions that they will ask the people that they interview this spring.
