Where are we going this Fall?
We just got back from a week in DC with our 5th graders and are excited to catch you up on all the great progress the Odyssey Initiative has made.
First off, thank you. Thank you for getting us to one third of our target in the first ten days of our campaign. We are pleased by the variety of backers that are getting involved (educators, parents and concerned citizens) and are working hard to keep the excitement going. Our interactive website is under development, and we cannot wait to give you a sneak peek.
Our fall schedule is almost entirely nailed down, including visits to High Tech High in San Diego, Ace Leadership in Albuquerque and the celebrated teacher training program, The Academy for Urban School Leadership, in Chicago. We are especially excited for our first family town-hall in San Francisco come mid-September.
Please spread the word to your networks.
Go to our website and meet us online. We can't wait to meet you for real during our travels!
