Would anyone be interested in meeting at the Sam's in Kenner (immediately off the I-10 Loyola exit) for an 8:30 am DEPARTURE to Baton Rouge CARAVAN STYLE???   SAMS map :

Everyone could decorate their cars with BLACK and the STOP Common Core Message..... we want to BURY CCSSI !!!  Bring a black umbrella...... good for rain or shine.... and we might have a second line "funeral" for CC.

Please RSVP on this Meetup page and indicate if you are interested in meeting at Sams.

    Positive day. Decent turnout with passionate Families and Teachers. Good media coverage and a great line of speakers. Can it turn the Jindal ship? We pray it will.
