Happy Thanksgiving 
November 27, 2014

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite times of the year.  It is a time of both joy and reflection, and a time to fully appreciate all of the wonderful people and moments that make up our lives. I hope that you and yours enjoy an amazing day of family, great food, and maybe a little football. —— Turkey Day Game!

I’m personally thankful for all of the fantastic work that is being done around our district. As you know, I am very focused on student achievement, and I know that the following recent ventures create the kind of learning environments that will really make a positive impact.

To share with you all of the great work that is unfolding in Portland Public Schools everyday, I created the Community e-Newsletter.  The purpose of the Community e-Newsletter is to communicate successes and ongoing work at the district level and in the public schools.

For example, this issue of the e-Newsletter includes news items about the Portland Public Schools’ STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) Exposition, an update about the plan for replacing Hall School and information on student projects.

The Community e-Newsletter will come out twice a year, in the fall and the spring. You can subscribe to the free Community e-Newsletter by sending an email to  superintendent at portlandschools.org with “Subscribe to e-Newsletter” in the message or subject line.

The Community e-Newsletter can also be found on the district’s website, www.portlandschools.org. Click on “District” and go to the “Stay Informed” section of the site.

I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my husband. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and she told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my husband know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Zuma zuk spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com

How to buy hermes birkin? If you are going to buy authentic hermes birkin, the best way is to visit local hermes boutique, but you need to wait for a long time. You may also try some ebay sellers, if you don't mind being cheated. We all know a lot of ebay sellers tried to sell fake hermes at the authentic price. Why not try http://www.hermessale.ee? We have both standard grade at affordable price, or premium grade with a little more money. People can not tell the difference among our best hermes birkin replica from the authentic hermes.   
<a href="http://www.hermessale.com">Where to buy hermes birkin replica</a> (Guest) said On 19 July, 2018 at 12:17 AM
Where to buy hermes birkin replica? You may be heard of HermesSale.com, it was the well-known online shop in this industry. They offer best quality hermes replica bag and wallets. But because of copy right issues and complaint from authentic hermes, they have to change domains frequently. Their current working domain is http://www.hermessale.ee, if you have wechat, you'd better add their account (HermesSale).

In the English tradition, days of thanksgiving and uncommon thanksgiving religious services became important during the English Reformation in the reign of Henry VIII and in response to the substantial number of religious occasions on the Catholic calendar.
