Night of the Notables, live on 105 the Hive!

Notable class of 2012

Tonight the TALONS classes will be presenting their Eminent Person Study at the annual Night of the Notables. A tradition in our program, as well as in our district going back to the early nineteen eighties, Night of the Notables is a one of a kind rite of passage for TALONS grade tens, and – in addition to the Fall Retreats – a welcoming initiation for our grade nines.

Tonight, the TALONS classes Perform.

And we hope to be able to share as much of it as we can with you, out there, on the Internet! If you haven’t already, you can check in with TALONS progress on the Eminent Person Study collected in previous posts on Defying Normality, as well as the Twitter hashtag we have been using this year: #Eminent2013.

We would love to hear from you! Your questions, encouragement, and other participation are appreciated, always – if you’d like to share a message with the TALONS this evening, send @talonsblog a Tweet, or send your message to the #Eminent2013 tag.

You will also be able to tune in to live proceedings from the event, as well, via K12 Student Web Radio Station 105 the Hive. TALONS alumni Zoe will be reprising her role as Notable Host this evening, and sharing our Notable Addresses from Gleneagle’s Broken Wing Theatre beginning at 7pm (PST), followed by our Learning Center gallery walk from 8pm to approximately 9:30pm.
