Friday 12/21/18 -- Bulb Day
9th grade - 2 goals - Personal and Academic
10th-12th grade - 3 goals - Personal, Academic and Career

Here are the instructions for getting goals into Bulb, both from a computer and iPhone (they're also on the December PLP schedule for tomorrow).

Note: on a computer, kids need to get to a blank line on the page (click enter a few times) in order to see the links to add a picture.

Note: on the iPhone, sometimes the app has the + button on top of the hyperlink symbol so you have to click it a few times to see the blue "Take photo" or "Add photo" buttons. I know, it's a pain and I'm sorry about that! The app is still in beta so it's not perfect yet 🙄
