Would you like to receive a post card from the South Pole?

Kate Miller, a W & L physics teacher, is going to the South Pole one week from today and would love to send you a post card!

From Kate:

With only a few more days ‘til break, we’re all feeling the “final push.” Over here, I’m organizing, packing, and taking several trips to REI to prepare for my expedition to Antarctica. I leave for New Zealand in ONE WEEK and my South Pole expedition follows in early January.

I’m emailing you about a unique opportunity for you, your students, your family and friends. The South Pole Station has its very own post office (who knew?) with its very own, authentic South Pole stamp. In an effort to increase engagement, I’ll be sending postcards to anyone (seriously anyone – not just students) who is interested! I’d appreciate it if you could help me spread the word in these final days before break. Instructions for signing up for a postcards are at this link: bit.ly/SouthPolePostcards


I hope you and your students will follow along with my expedition while I’m gone.

 Thank you for your ongoing support as I embark on this super cold journey!
