Wednesday Five: Casey, Obama, Dino Tracks, Calendar
Here's hoping you weren't up all night watching elections, and some things to know:
Bronco' Bama - NBC News called the presidential election for President Barack Obama around 11:15 p.m. last night. It wasn't until very early this morning, though, that Mitt Romney announced he was conceding the election. So, there's some good news for a certain little girl who gets to stop hearing about the election.
Woonsocket Delegation - Preliminary results point to a new member of the city's delegation to the General Assembly - Stephen Casey, (D-Dist. 50). Casey joins re-elected Reps Lisa Baldelli-Hunt (D-Dist. 49), Rep. Bob Phillips (D-Dist. 51), Sen. Marc A. Cote, (D-Dist. 24) and Sen. Roger A. Picard (D-Dist. 20).
Dino tracking - Designed with homeschooling families in mind, but open to all, Habitats and Tracking is a five-week series of small classes providing an intimate setting for child-driven learning. Each 90-minute class is designed for children ages 6-12 and is taught by an EcoTarium educator. Children will participate in learning groups of ages 6-8 and ages 9-12.
