Technology could reduce paperwork

“It’s a hassle, but it’s something good,” Stepp said. “GLE’s are really beneficial because you know the kids are getting what they need to succeed.”
Some teachers are concerned all of the additional paperwork robs them of valuable energy needed to focus on planning classroom activities. Fortunately, the Lincoln Parish School System is looking for a means to reduce time spent on paperwork by switching to an electronic grading book system.

Talk to kids about fire

Other tips from the USFA include:
• Check under beds and in closets for burned matches, evidence your child may be playing with fire;
• Take the mystery out of fire play by teaching children that fire is a tool, not a toy; and
• Teach children the nature of fire: It is fast, hot, dark and deadly.
It is also important children know how to react in the case of a fire. Parents should work with the children to make sure a home escape plan is in place — which includes having two ways out of every room and designating a family meeting place in a safe area.

Stop, drop and roll silly

Thinking back, I was hard pressed to remember if I had ever seen an ambulance in my hometown of tiny Woodville, Miss., where she lives.

Tech plans for construction

After Phase I, which is scheduled to be complete fall 2009, Speed said Phase II would begin along Everett Street.
The two new dorm complexes should house more than 480 students.
“The first part will be another University Park,” Speed said, referring to Tech’s newest housing along Alabama Avenue.
“Unlike University Park, these units will be full apartments with washers and dryers and full-size kitchens. University Park doesn’t have that; they’re more of utility apartments.”
The Everett Street dorms, Speed added, would be a “hybrid between all.”

Rike’s draft boosts Tech prestige

Rike is a perfect example.
Coming out of Stephen F. Austin High School in Richmond, Texas, he wasn’t highly recruited.
In fact, Tech was actually the only school that really showed a lot of interest.
“We had him in one of our summer camps, invited him as a walk-on in the fall (of 2004) and then he just went from there,” Simoneaux recalled. “Brian being drafted so high is a credit to the hard work that he did and also to how much Fran and David meant in his development.”

Oh no, it's that time again

Ah, now you see how I’m getting by with this.
I love shirts. I feel I can usually get more bang for my buck by purchasing five shirts for the same price as I would pay for one pair of pants.
I have similar feelings about shoes. I can wear the same pair of shoes twice a week. I can’t wear the same outfit twice a week, though, so shoes are very important to me.
However, there are a few things I very much despise shopping for: blue jeans are one, but bathing suits take the cake.
Literally. It’s the cake that makes me hate shopping for them.
