Thanks to this wonderful community, we raised $277.82 through sales of our Slice of Life Story Challenge T-shirts. We will be donating this in full to The Pajama Program to give children in need a book and a pair of their own pajamas at bedtime. Thanks to all of you who participated, and we can’t wait to see you sporting your Tees. The T-shirts have shipped, so you should receive yours shortly.

Slicers, if you’ll be at NCTE in November, join us for dinner!  We’ll be dining at McLoone’s Pier House on Saturday evening, 11/22.  See Stacey’s post for details and to RSVP.

  1. I’ve tried commenting on several Blogger blogs and keep getting this message:
    “Service Unavailable
    Error 503”
    That happened using my Google sign-in and my WordPress sign-in. Is anyone else having this problem?


  2. For some reason, my post is not showing up on here today. This happened in August, too. Very frustrating. 😦 Third attempt at getting this on. Teachers, please read. This is about a talented young man who graduated from our small school. It is about recognizing and nurturing such talent…and we all have had them in our classrooms. Teachers are an important key to the success of these students. Fortunately, Chase also had great parents.
