Extractions: "Pennies for Patients" is a fun service learning program! This program allows students to give back to patients and families in Massachusetts. The concept behind "Pennies for Patients" is simple. Students bring in spare change and dollars and add it to their classroom's collection container. At the end of a three week collection period (February/ March time frame), the classroom with the most money wins an ice-cream party sponsored by Hood! Schools can also win great prizes like computers, electronics and school supply gift certificates. Funds raised through "Pennies for Patients" support our mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families. Seventy-six (76%) of the money raised by the "Pennies for Patients" program goes to the mission. Our services include research, patient services (including up to $500 in financial aid per patient), education, and advocacy. Back to School is a re-entry program that helps young survivors adjust to life after treatment, and teaches families, classmates, teachers and health care professionals how to deal with the issues surrounding childhood cancer. Even as hope soars for children with leukemia and other blood-related cancers, they face serious physical and emotional challenges when they return to school after treatment. The Society's goal is to ease the transition of the child with cancer back into the classroom and school activities and to enhance his/her chances for success in school.

Extractions: by Kathy Branaugh Mission Statement The mission of the library media program is to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information. The mission is accomplished by providing intellectual and physical access to materials in all formats; providing instruction to foster competence and stimulate interest in reading, viewing and using information and ideas; and working with other educators to design learning strategies to meet the needs of individual students. (Information Power, p. 1) This is the mission statement that I gave my administration when asked what is the purpose of the library. I needed this statement to show my administrators why the library is such an important part of the school. We as library media specialists are not people who just sit and check out books. Though we may not deal with students seven or eight periods a day, we do have many "chores" to do. When school started last year, I went in to visit my new principal. She told me that I was the third administrator of the school. I finally found someone who realized the work it takes to run a library media center. The administrative functions of the school library are often done behind-the-scenes but are essential to the operation of the library. The library must serve teachers and students to its fullest and it is your responsibility to make that happen. There are communities where the school library is the only library in town. Are you prepared to serve the community as well as the school?

Extractions: Massachusetts Institute of Technology L etter from the Director of the Center for Advanced Educational Services (CAES) As of July 1, 2003, CAES will cease to operate as a separate MIT unit. The current form of CAES, the Center for Advanced Educational Services, was born on September 1, 1995, from the people and programs of the original CAES - Center for Advanced Engineering Studies. We have built together key MIT assets for over seven years, starting from two business units in 1995 to six units as recently as two years ago: Advanced Study Program MIT Video Productions Center for Educational Computing Initiatives Professional Institute ... Educational Media Creation Center and Streaming Media and Compression Services The good news is that each of these six units survives and each has become or will become central to MIT core educational missions. ASP and PI are now part of the Dean's Office of the School of Engineering, ensuring their high priority secured status going forward. MVP, EMCC and SMCS now comprise
