Newsletter #32
Welcome to the latest edition of the NGPF Newsletter (#32 for those of you scoring at home).

We are having a great time this week hosting our June Summer Institute at our offices in Palo Alto. Knowing that many of our readers use the summer months to tinker with their curriculum, we wanted to share with you resources that our NGPF Fellows selected during a one-hour Scavenger Hunt they completed yesterday ("Top Resources from Summer Institute" below). 

As always, if you have any ideas on how we can serve you better, please drop us an email!

Enjoy your summer!
