Chowtime – 2/15 (Orange Week Edition)

This week wrapped up the Orange Spring Blogger Week in preparation for the Orange Conference 2014.  There was a lot of information and great content out there about Orange that you may have missed.  So, grab some chow and chew on some of these things that you may have missed from last week:

images-6Stat to Chew on…97% of students learn their manners from home.  57% also said they learn manners and civility from their place of worship.  43% named school as a positive influence on their manners, in particular through their involvement in Extracurricular Activities, e.g. Music, Sports, Student Government, Theater, etc. (thanks Stage of Life)
