· Lafayette 1st-5th grade students: Your “Brave Enough” Quilt Square ART should have been turned in by now to be included in the School Wide DIGITAL QUILT! Hopefully you uploaded a crisp clear bright photo to your assignment in Canvas. The Big QUILT REVEAL – Coming Soon.

· International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8th around the world. IWD is the focal point for the women’s rights. The United Nation’s began celebrating the day back in 1977, but the honor actually began in the early 1900’s in parts of Europe and Asia. This day celebrates womanhood and is a public holiday in some countries, while it is a day of protest in other countries.


Since most of you are smack dab in the middle of your QUILT SQUARE ART, I thought of a quote. I remember it came from a TV show in the 90’s – Mad About You. The character Ira Buckman said it in a couple of episodes. Here is the quote, with Ms. Mclaughlin and Ms. Perll in mind –

“Art is the physical representation of what our minds can create, but only our hearts can understand.” Maybe a scriptwriter made it up?

Do you know this quote Ms. Mclaughlin or Ms. Perll? Anyone else? Please drop me an email –


Lafayette, the time is now, go take on the day – Cheerio mates!!
