Hi PTK'ers

        If you're wanting to get an early start on building excitement in
anticipation of LFM with your kids, and if your classroom comfort level
allows for some silliness, then Warner Bros. animated character - Marvin
the Martian may be perfect.  He has become our LFM counterpart of Izzy from
the '96 Atlanta Summer Olympics.  Kids (even those "sophisticated" 8th
graders) are sporting MM notebooks, notepads, pens, and even some very
stylish MM designer t-shirts. MM has become somewhat of a cult hero in our
building. All of this should lead to some very primed learners when LFM
roles out this fall. 

                                                          On to Mars,
