I've gotten a few questions about what the agenda is at the meeting on Saturday.
I'm sure we'll talk about Laura - and I'll need a little update on how you've been doing things.
Mostly, I want to talk about how to carry the Parents' council forward, now that we've lost Laura's excellent leadership.
As many of you know, I'm transitioning into a new job as metro columnist - but I'm committed to keeping this group alive and well and together for as long as it takes.
If possible, I'll bring Ken Paulman, the new features editor along, so you can meet him.
I am hoping that we'll be able to put together a smaller group of parents -- like three or four folks -- who'll commit to being active on the blog and keeping the dialogue going.
As for topics, please bring any topic you'd like to talk about and be ready to explain it for a bit.
And finally, I'm looking forward to meeting all of you again. I've only met you once, and I'm anxious to put some faces on some names, talk and reconnect.
