We are thrilled to hear that your Mars Night was a huge 
success. Congratulations!! Undoubtedly, it will remain in the memories of
your students and attending parents and guests as one of those
special school activities that *really* made a difference.

These efforts require tremendous advance preparation and 
coordination but they are rewarding and a major accomplishment
of which you can be proud.  I am sure many of us on the list can 
relate to how you feel after all your hard work. 

Glad to hear that documenting this special event did occur and
that you will share your pictures and video with the Passport to
Knowledge Project Director, Geoff Haines-Stiles, and staff.  We invite
ALL who are actively implementing the LFM project to do the same.

Many of you have already this done via digital images (using Quicktake
and other digital cameras,), newspaper stories, audio and videotapes,
etc.   (Please be sure to visit Kid's Corner on our web site to
see the many classroom activities and student work shared via this
medium. )

Please send your videotape to our PTK office via this address:

Passport to Knowledge
P.O. Box 1502
Summit, NJ 07902-1502

When submitting such items, please include a description of the special
event and all  pertinent information regarding your class' involvement
in the PTK projects and your contact information.  (name, address, phone,
fax, etc.)

We would like to see more digital images and accompanying text
from other classrooms actively implementing this project.  We encourage
you to record LFM activies and share them with those who visit our
Kid's Corner.  This is a great way for your students to receive 
recognition for their efforts and to virtually "meet" their peers
online.  Send those images and text descriptions/journals to my
attention and we will see to it that your class has their own special
"photo-documentary" online!
