                        GOLDEN MEAN DAY,1819,152,00.shtm

  August 13th was 61.8 percent of the way through the year --
  "a fitting day to proclaim Golden Mean Day," according to the
  ENC Classroom Calendar. Although that date has passed, your
  classroom may celebrate during the school year by figuring
  out, as ENC suggests, what 61.8 percent of the school year
  would be, or 61.8 percent of a specific month.
