DATES TO REMEMBER Take Note Program information and holidays for your chapter calendars. Problem Solving MARCH Middle Level Education Month 2 feeder elementary schools with reading activities Where would we be without problems to solve? Every year advisers face a wide range of problems in the management of their chapters. Often the answers can be found in resources from the national office or through consultation with peers or administrators, but sometimes you're on your own. In many cases, the student leaders from your chapter provide the best assistance-which also provides a valuable learning experience for them. We invite you to explore a variety of perspectives on problems and their solutions in this month's issue of Leadership for Student Activities with the hope that your problems are few and solutions are easily identified for the remainder of the school year. CHAPTER PROJECTS Have your officers submitted your chapter projects to the new online database found at www.nhs.us and www.njhs.us? Now with more than 3,100 projects, the National Student Project Database is awaiting input from your chapter. Help us build the nation's largest searchable database of projects as an ongoing resource for your chapters and a repository of all of the extraordinary things that students are doing around the nation.
