Curry called a sense of being “joyful in Jesus Christ.”“This was a good meeting,” Curry said in a news conference after the meeting adjourned. “It was a joy-filled meeting but, joy, unlike giddy happiness, is a deeper thing. It’s not just a response to being happy in the neighborhood. Joy has to do with our joy in being in Jesus Christ. So we could be joyful and serious about the work God has given us to do.”Curry said council’s work was done “in the context of a real, deep commitment to following the way of Jesus; to take that more seriously and to go ever deeper in that and to commit evangelism in the best sense of that word, evangelism and racial reconciliation as the beginning of broader ways of human reconciliation.”Council members cried over recent attacks in Paris and Beirut and when they heard about the transformative experiences during a recent young adult pilgrimage to Ferguson, Missouri, Curry said.House of Deputies President the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings noted that this was mainly an organizational meeting for council. The 2016-2018 has not yet begun but 19 new members, whose terms expire in 2021, joined their colleagues whose terms end in 2018 to begin their service. Council’s five joint standing committees began looking at the scope of their work for the coming triennium and examined General Convention resolutions that were referred to them for action in the coming three years, she said.Jennings told the council in her closing remarks that she appreciated what she called the “generous” spirit of the meeting and reminded the members that they had been talking about being elastic in response to change. “I do hope we will embrace the notion of being elastic,” she said.General Convention’s call for the church to focus on evangelism and racial reconciliation was front and center as council organized itself. Curry refused during the news conference to claim to be the originator of that dual call. Saying that convention “spoke with some remarkable clarity that I really believe that is of the spirit of God,” the presiding bishop said. “It wasn’t just Michael Curry. I think this was bigger than Michael Curry; this was the General Convention.”Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry listens to Executive Council debate during the group’s Nov. 15-18 meeting at the Maritime Institute Conference Center in Linthicum Heights, Maryland. Photo: Jim Simons/ via FacebookCurry added that evangelism and racial reconciliation are “intimately related,” noting that the Holy Spirit brought together disparate groups on Pentecost. Those groups eventually found a way to become a new community based on the sense that those who follow Jesus are family. “This is the gospel’s work and our General Convention claimed that work anew,” he said.Both Curry and Jennings described how they see the church’s work on evangelism and racial reconciliation proceeding. The presiding bishop said he envisions The Episcopal Church engaged in evangelism on two levels. One would be centered on planting and nurturing new churches as well as helping existing churches find ways to expand their reach into their surrounding communities. The second part of the work, he said, ought to involve nurturing as followers of Jesus “the actual Episcopalian who is sitting in the pews Sunday by Sunday” so that they are intentionally living as Christians and growing in the authentic “capacity to share and bear witness to the faith that’s in them.”“That’s the probably the longer-term impact and the one that will take more time and more intentional work,” he said.When people learn how to tell their faith stories they help build “a church that comes alive in some new ways,” Curry said, adding that those individual Episcopalians will then “have an impact in the world and in lives in ways that we could never program.”Imagine, he said, if the nearly 2 million Episcopalians did this. “We could change the world.”Jennings said racial reconciliation “is a hugely complex complicated set of issues and concerns, and there are any number of ways to dive into this.” Convention Resolution C019 charges the president and vice president of the two houses of convention “to lead, direct, and be present to assure and account for the Church’s work of racial justice and reconciliation,” Jennings noted.Those officers, plus the Rev. Michael Barlowe in his role of secretary of convention, have been meeting to discuss how to move the church forward, she said. It became clear, Jennings said, that was important to heed the advice of Deputies Vice President Byron Rushing who urged that “before we started planning, we need to listen and to listen deeply and carefully to people who are on the frontlines doing this work who can inform whatever plan or strategy we develop to engage every Episcopalian in this vital gospel-based work,” according to Jennings.The officers are arranging some hearings and developing a list of people to whom they want to listen. Jennings predicted that the group would have more information to share with the church in the first quarter of 2016.Council took a step in doing its own work around racial reconciliation during a session Nov. 16 with Brite Divinity School theology professor Keri Day. Day challenged the council to struggle with her contention that the Christian church has been and still is situated in what she called “America’s racist democratic ideal.”Many liberal Christians, as well as many liberal Americans in general, believe that the democratic ideal is a “moral blueprint” from which the country has strayed, Day said. However, she said, that the ideal is rooted in what she called white supremacy. Such supremacy is about how economic and political power accrues to whites in the United States and thus systematically excludes others.“We must tell the truth about ourselves,” Brite Divinity School theology professor Keri Day said, urging council to recognize that the Christian church has been complicit in the construction of American society. Photo: Brite Divinity SchoolThus, she said, there has always been a “real Darwinian barbarity” at the heart of the construction of American culture. Americans have failed to value all lives in their conception of democracy from the very beginning, Day said.“We must tell the truth about ourselves,” Day said, urging council to recognize that the Christian church has been complicit in the construction of American society and that “the church’s racist past is the church’s racist present.”Such truth-telling, she acknowledged, can be risky. And some council members said during their discussion with Day that they wonder about how to encourage Episcopal Church congregations to struggle with racism in U.S. culture and in themselves.Heidi Kim, Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society missioner for racial reconciliation, facilitated a discussion among council members and staff after Day’s presentation. She suggested that each person was probably reacting differently to what Day had said. For some, it was “brand new information” and for some “it’s the kind of thing we’ve been reading and doing and engaging in and been up to our ears in for a very long time, and trying to talk about it and not getting anywhere.” None of the experiences on that spectrum of reaction is right or wrong and none makes for experts or rookies.“The point of Dr. Day’s presentation today was to stir up the Holy Spirit among us,” she said.The Very Rev. Brian Baker, council member from Province VIII, said hearing Day’s presentation was an important step in having council model how The Episcopal Church could do this work. “If we’re expecting The Episcopal Church to get it right, we should be able to get it right,” he said.“I don’t think there’s anything more important for us to do than to embrace this task,” said Navajoland Bishop David Bailey. “If we do it well, it’s something we can give to the rest of the church. But until we’re willing to step forth and invest the time, the energy and the pain that’s involved with this, all the work we do in Executive Council is truly not going to matter.” Doing that work, Bailey said, “would truly be a gift to the rest of the church.”Members of Executive Council’s Joint Standing Committee on Finances for Ministry and its Joint Standing Committee on Advocacy and Networking for Mission deliberate Nov. 17 at the Maritime Institute Conference Center in Linthicum Heights, Maryland. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceIn other action on Nov. 18, council also:* heard a report about the Oct. 8-12 Young Adult Pilgrimage to Ferguson, Missouri, from three staff members, including Kim, Chuck Wynder, Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society missioner for social justice and advocacy engagement, and Bronwyn Skov, Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society officer for youth ministries. Kim said the pilgrimage was meant to be an experience of spiritual transformation and formation rather than a conference or a training session on activism. The planners’ goal, according to Skov, was not to give the young adults a mountain-top experience but instead to create a “very uncomfortable space in which the Holy Spirit could hopefully dig in and work.” Staff was available to assist the pilgrims as they needed. As it turned out, she said, “There was a lot of white guilt in the room that many of us didn’t know how to deal with it.” Wynder said that the group went “beyond the black and white binary.” Of the 25 participants, 10 were white, 10 were black and the remaining five were Latino, Native American and Pacific Islander.Council member Warren Wong speaks to a joint meeting Nov. 17 of Executive Council’s Joint Standing Committee on Finances for Ministry and its Joint Standing Committee on Advocacy and Networking for Mission at the Maritime Institute Conference Center in Linthicum Heights, Maryland.

The committee comes in anticipation of the new position of chief legal officer that General Convention created by way of a rewrite of Canon 1.4. The canonical change goes into effect in January. The ad hoc committee will also develop a job description for the process.* met in executive session for about 45 minutes during the morning. In moving to go into the closed session, council member Fredrica Thompsett said the session would “consider a couple items stated in Bishop Stacy’s report, one concerning Haiti and the other concerning some staff and personnel issues.” Chief Operating Officer Bishop Stacy Sauls had spoken to the council Nov. 17 about the organization and responsibilities of the church-wide staff. His presentation was part of the typical council orientation that happens at the start of each triennium.A summary of the resolutions council passed is here.The Nov. 15-18 meeting took place at the Maritime Institute Conference Center.As the final morning session got underway Nov. 18, Barlowe told the members that a concealed audio recording device had been found on the floor of the plenary room near the table where he, Curry, Jennings and other members had been seated during the plenary sessions. He asked council members to check their tabletops and to look under their tables for any additional devices. Barlowe also said that his staff was checking to see if there were security tapes that could be reviewed to determine what happened.The Executive Council carries out the programs and policies adopted by the General Convention, according to Canon I.4 (1)(a). The council is composed of 38 members, 20 of whom (four bishops, four priests or deacons and 12 lay people) are elected by General Convention and 18 (one clergy and one lay) by the nine provincial synods for six-year terms – plus the presiding bishop, the president of the House of Deputies. In addition, the vice president of the House of Deputies, secretary, chief operating officer, treasurer and chief financial officer have seat and voice but no vote.– The Rev.

Submit a Press Release Rector Pittsburgh, PA Doug Desper says: Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem November 21, 2015 at 3:05 pm A recorder was found? Maybe it was someone who wasn’t trusting in the processes at the meeting; an issue raised by a few actually in the meetings themselves. Resolution (FFM 019) was to authorize housing allowances in particular amounts for 20 staff members, including the new Presiding Bishop and the Chief Operating Officer. Under the federal tax code, housing allowances allow clergy to pay less in taxes than if they take all their compensation as salary.The Committee on Finances approved the housing allowance amounts and recommended that the Exec Council do the same. However, when the resolution reached the floor, all the amounts were blacked out on the projection screen. They were also blacked out on versions distributed to reporters. A thin answer was given when objections arose to numbers being hidden. Back to the recorder. Apparently someone thought that it would be nice if transparency could be found in church business.BTW: How is moving from 815 progressing? The will of General Convention was clear on that. Between 815 and the 20 housing allowances in high rent New York the numbers might just be mind-blowing.

The project’s protagonist it’s a great mesquite wich already has been growing in the land, the site has a much longer than wide proportions, therefore, and it was decided to enlarge the promenades inside the house in order to have the largest amount of living space, but withouth residual spaces.Save this picture!© Desireé Brito, Arándano fotografíaSave this picture!ProcessThis project was an exhaustive exercise of integration between the mesquite with the house, where the result was a synergy between the natural environment and the building, as well as a constant interior-exterior relationship. In this way we choose to respect the tree entirely without touching it or wrapping it , which resulted in a diagonal axis that gives us the longest side of the site, generating a deconstruction of the most common house typology in the area which is characterized by a parking space in front and a courtyard garden in the background, In this case the diagonal axis of the project gives us the opportunity to create two open gardens on the sides, separating us from the adjoining areas and giving lighting and ventilation to the whole house.Save this picture!© Desireé Brito, Arándano fotografíaSave this picture!Ground FloorFollowing with the desire to incorporate the tree to every single space inside the house, a terrace emerges in the upper floor whose shade is generated by the foliage of the same tree, being able to live the element from all angles, taking the analogy of the “little tree house” that many of us dreamed of as children, this is a house made to contemplate the tree and live along with it.Save this picture!© Desireé Brito, Arándano fotografíaThe main materials of the project are in general terms concrete, mud and glass; elements that we relate to the stone, earth and air that are the essence of the site. Nevertheless, these become architectural elements that provides the house with a very cozy atmosphere.Save this picture!© Desireé Brito, Arándano fotografíaThe apparent concrete walls, the bridge and the concrete floor on the ground floor, seek timelessness and in turn give prominence to the vegetation of the side gardens and the tree itself. It also has been sought to incorporate traditional elements of mexican architecture such as mud lattices, zotehuela tiles, vaults and handcrafted mosaic, evoking the memory of the home.Save this picture!Section A-A’The architectural program is easy to read and the paths are very functionals, on the ground floor we have the social area with a double height and an very open space, a fairly large kitchen with an island that serves as a dining room. And to the sides we have the gardens that allows to expand the interior space but also allows us to always keep in mind the view of the mesquite from different frames.Save this picture!© Desireé Brito, Arándano fotografíaUpstairs we find the private area with two bedrooms that are connected through a bridge from which we can appreciate the spaciousness of the social area through the double height with the vaults. These rooms share a terrace already mentioned, and through which we can have a direct dialogue between the tree, the person and the sky, being perhaps the most intimate space.Save this picture!Second floorThe façade closes to the west to protect the sun from the southwest and breathes through the east, illuminated by the morning sun. Towards the street we have a volume that is supported by a pair of inclined columns and by a concrete wall, again we have an analogy of the tree that emerges from the earth and is covered by its foliage; on one side and coexisting , we have the great tree in the foreground partially dressed by a lattice that from the outside allows us to appreciate it but leaves some mystery to invite you to explore the space from the inside.Save this picture!© Desireé Brito, Arándano fotografíaProject gallerySee allShow lessZNERA Proposes a Network of Smog Filtering Towers To Combat Delhi’s Rising Pollution…Architecture NewsDoes Form Follow Fashion?

Howard Lake | 17 November 2006 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Mobile phone recyclers in the UK who raise money for numerous charities have hit back at claims that they are putting charities at risk and fuelling phone crime.An undercover investigation by Recipero – which runs an online stolen property identification system called CheckMEND – claimed that some of the UK’s major mobile phone recycles were putting the reputations at risk, along with those of national charities and major retailers, by handling and selling stolen handsets.The company sent handsets registered as stolen to the four biggest UK recycling companies via recycling schemes publicised in major retail outlets. Donations for these phones were made to the nominated charities, which Recipero said meant charities were receiving money from the sale of stolen goods and high street stores left themselves open to accusations of a lack of corporate responsibility.Phone recycler Redeem said it had raised more than £2.2m through recycling hundreds of thousands of handsets and printer cartridges and had not received one complaint about incidences of stolen goods.A spokesman for the company said it commended Recipero’s CheckMEND service, and supported its use for online functions and situations where individuals stand to gain from the sale of stolen mobiles but said: At present it is not a practical solution for the processing of high volumes of handsets. The time, labour and monetary costs involved would undoubtedly impact on the funds generated for charities through recycling.Eazyfone Group, another handset recycler, said it uses stringent control mechanisms in its sorting departments to identify potentially stolen handsets. When these are identified, they are handed to the police with the name and contact details of the person or business who sent it in for recycling.Recipero has been in contact with the Charity Commission and asked it to make sure that registered charities are aware of potential criminal activity and that any donations received from mobile phone recyclers have not been made from unchecked phones.The company says its services and systems have been adopted by law enforcement organisations including UK police and HMRC, insurers and the mobile phone industry as an integral part of the detection of property ownership, insurance and VAT fraud, false reporting and associated criminality.www.checkmend.com/uk/ Mobile phone recyclers refute ‘stolen goods’ claim About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Awards Recruitment / people Professional Fundraising magazine has launched its annual poll to find the 50 most influential people in fundraising. The magazine has listed some individual fundraisers, donors, funders, regulators, celebrities, thinkers and technology providers who have made an impact, but you can vote for whom you wish.This year the magazine has introduced a few changes because it acknowledges that “while many entrants have undoubtedly earned their place, there are a few whose positioning is questionable, and other names which are missing altogether.”So, this year it is asking people to consider four specific criteria when making a selection. These focus on whether the individual has: Advertisement Vote for the 50 most influential people in fundraising * influence over fundraising techniques, mechanisms, and style* the ability to change perceptions and/or behaviour within the fundraising community* the ability to change perceptions and/or behaviour among the general public* influence over fundraising law, regulation and policyYou can vote for up to 10 candidates. Those nominated in top place are given 10 points, with those in second place nine points, and so on. The person with the most points will top the poll.Professional Fundraising adds “this year we want no more voting for your best friend – or yourself, as has been known in the past.”There are at least a couple of email-based campaigns doing the rounds at present on behalf of individuals, and both candidates are certainly deserving. While voting for one’s best friend certainly goes on, it is good to see fundraisers keen to see their peers recognised.Voting closes on 30 March 2007, and the poll results will be announced at the Professional Fundraising Awards on 23 May and in the June issue of Professional Fundraising magazine. Don’t be confused by the closing date on the website given as 28 February. That’s the closing date for nominations to the Professional Fundraising awards, which share the same website.

Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. The Chartered Institute of Trade Mark AttorneysAssociation for Project ManagementNational Citizen Service TrustWorshipful Company of EducatorsPolice Roll of Honour TrustSome Chartered professions do of course include members or activities that are involved in the sector, including the Chartered Institute of Marketing, Chartered Institute of Public Relations, or Chartered Institute of Professional Development.The Institute’s attempts to achieve Chartered status have the support of the Charity Commission, the Scottish Charity Regulator, the Fundraising Regulator, and NCVO.How to qualify for professional Chartered statusAccording to the Privy Council, the main criteria for a profession to qualify for Chartered Status are:(a) the institution concerned should comprise members of a unique profession, and should have as members most of the eligible field for membership, without significant overlap with other bodies.(b) corporate members of the institution should be qualified to at least first degree level in a relevant discipline;(c) the institution should be financially sound and able to demonstrate a track record of achievement over a number of years;(d) incorporation by Charter is a form of Government regulation as future amendments to the Charter and by-laws of the body require Privy Council (ie Government) approval. There therefore needs to be a convincing case that it would be in the public interest to regulate the body in this way. Progress towards Chartered statusFollowing the Privy Council‘s permission, the Institute’s Board of Trustees has agreed a draft set of new constitutional documents (Charter, Bye-Laws and Regulations) on which it will consult with its members and the Privy Council.A final version will then be submitted for agreement by members at the Institute’s AGM in July. If the consultation goes as planned and members approve the move to become a Chartered body, it is expected that the formal petition to the Privy Council will be made in July. The decision would likely be made by the end of 2019.Alex Xavier, Director of Individual Membership, Compliance and Professional Development, worked previously for a Chartered members body. He said that he had seen the many benefits such status can bring. He said: “If we are subsequently given permission to award Individual Chartered Status in a few years’ time, this will give our individual members who hold qualifications or equivalent experience the opportunity to apply to become chartered fundraisers – anticipated to be the pinnacle in professional recognition of knowledge, skills and ethical standards in fundraising.”The Institute of Fundraising has over 6,000 individual members and over 600 organisational members who raise more than £10 billion in income for good causes every year. Tagged with: Institute of Fundraising The Privy Council has granted permission to the Institute of Fundraising to apply for Chartered status.The Institute has been working towards becoming a Chartered Institute for some years. For the past six years it has been a strategic objective, based on consultations with its member. Howard Lake | 16 April 2019 | News Other Chartered bodiesAccording to the Privy Council, “a Royal Charter is an instrument of incorporation, granted by The Queen, which confers independent legal personality on an organisation and defines its objectives, constitution and powers to govern its own affairs.”There are over 1,000 such Chartered bodies, but none work cover a charitable sector-specific skill or profession. Many are charitable organisations, ranging from grammar schools and universities to City Livery Companies and hospital foundations.The most recent Charters granted were given to: Advertisement Institute of Fundraising to apply formally for Chartered status What does Chartered status achieve?The new status, if granted, will raise the profile and status of fundraising. It will help promote fundraising as a profession with high standards of practice at its heart and which delivers public benefit.Most importantly, it will, according to the Institute, “provide public recognition of the fundraising profession”.Despite years of increasing professionalism, dedicated training, academic research, the production and application of a code of practice, and self-regulation, fundraising is still not treated by many, including those within the charitable sector, as “a proper profession”. The Institute’s Expert Panel on Equality, Diversity and Inclusion has highlighted that this issue is probably exacerbated within communities which are currently under-represented in fundraising.Given its core role in the future of charitable and civil society activities, it is vital that fundraising is seen as a credible career and profession. The Institute believes that chartered status will help achieve this.Peter Lewis, chief executive of the Institute of Fundraising, said: “This is a really important step for the Institute, embedding professional standards at the heart of the fundraising community, and securing external recognition for the important role fundraisers play in today’s society raising vital funds to make the world a better place.” 202 total views, 4 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis12 How to contribute to the processThe Institute has today published a new ‘chartered journey’ area on its website which will include all the draft governing documents, a series of blog posts, details about the consultation and a set of frequently asked questions.The Institute will be collecting questions (and answering them) across different social channels and organising a Twitter Q&A between 12.30 and 1.30pm on 9 May.

It will be held on Jan. 28 from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m..Last year’s count found 217 unsheltered homeless, which is an 8 percent increase since the count started in 2007 according to Directions Home.Tarrant County has seen an overall decrease in the homeless population since 2007.

Registration to volunteer is open until Tuesday. The increase connects with the fact that 35 percent of households in Fort Worth did not earn an $18.04 hourly wage, which is what a two-bedroom Fair Market Rent apartment cost, according to Directions Home.Tarrant County accounted for .32 percent of the United State’s homeless population in 2015.This year Otis Thornton, executive director of the Tarrant County Homeless Coalition, expects another increase in the number of homeless sleeping outside for a number of reasons.“The most challenging is that the availability of affordable housing that very poor families can afford has gone down in the last year,” said Thornton. “As occupancy rates go up vacancy rates go down and homeless goes up.”This year’s results from the count will be announced in late February at the State of the Homeless Address and could determine the amount of funding Tarrant and Parker counties receive.“This is a really important activity that impacts the amount of funding [we receive],” said volunteer and TCU assistant professor of social work Dr. Petrovich. “The majority of the funding we get in this city for homelessness services is federal and so when we miscount or underrepresent the nature of the problem here we can’t help people as much as we need to.”The count also shows where the funding should be distributed throughout the counties.“It helps us determine our funding priorities at the local level,” said Thornton.Thornton said between three and four hundred volunteers are needed for the count.Volunteers will be placed in teams of three to five and accompanied by a law enforcement member. They will count the number of homeless living without shelter, in emergency shelter and transitional housing.“Safety is everybody’s number one priority,” said Petrovich. “What typically happens is you’ll have a map that’ll have some existing kind of locations, like little dots on it where camps have been found before. So, you hit those places and then you want to canvas the area.”Typically some student organizations, church and professional groups will volunteer said Petrovich.Volunteers for the greater Fort Worth area will meet at University Christian Church at 2720 S. University Drive.“It’s amazing, you’ll walk in and you’ll see lots of purple sweatshirts everywhere and everybody’s ready to go,” said Petrovich. “Its really nice to see.”Thornton said the count could give volunteers a different view of their community.“For the volunteers who do encounter people who are homeless, its an opportunity to meet someone, to hear a little bit about their story and to see a little bit of the circumstances in which they live,” said Thornton.Registration to volunteer for the count will remain open until Tuesday.For more information on the count, Tarrant County Homeless Coalition, or to register click here.“We’re only asking for five hours of somebody’s life,” said Petrovich. “Potentially this kind of money can fund programs that can change people’s lives forever.” Tori Knox Twitter Tori Knoxhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/tori-knox/ Fort Worth set to elect first new mayor in 10 years Saturday Twitter Tori Knoxhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/tori-knox/ Facebook Fort Worth’s cat population remains steady

Doudna, a biochemist at the University of California at Berkeley, and Emmanuelle Charpentier, a French microbiologist, were awarded the 2020 Nobel Prize in Chemistry on Wednesday, the first time two women jointly won the award.According to the Washington Post, they are known for their work in developing CRISPR-Cas9, a tool that can alter the DNA of animals, plants and microorganisms. It is being used in research laboratories to help cure inherited diseases and provide a form of cancer therapy. Since 1901, the Nobel Committee has awarded 112 prizes in chemistry to 186 people. Only seven, including Doudna and Charpentier, were women.Charpentier told reporters, “I wish that this will provide a positive message, specifically, to young girls who would like to follow the path of science.”Tanglewood schools open earlier than plannedCertain grades in the Fort Worth Independent School District were allowed back in the classroom Monday, but schools in Overton Park and Tanglewood reopened for all students.Fort Worth ISD’s gradual transition to in-person learning began Monday, and they planned to have all grade levels return by Oct. 19, but concern over internet stability brought some students into school early. Connie Smith, the Overton Park Elementary principal, said many families have voiced concern over internet stability in the area. In an email sent to these parents Sept. 30, Smith said the school would take second- through fifth-graders as early as Tuesday. According to the Fort Worth Star Telegram, school officials said local principals have the right to decide when their students can return, “so it’s unclear how many or which other schools have done so.” Haley Cabrera Haley Cabrerahttps://www.tcu360.com/author/haley-cabrera/ World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution ReddIt Welcome TCU Class of 2025
