I have three quick conference items for you:
First, Barnes and Noble is managing our Resource Room this year. That means that they will provide the books and supplies for us. One of the advantages of using them, is that they are available during the conference, and beyond. They have set up a special code for us (bookfair ID is 12325999), that is active from March 15 – 20. So if you don’t pick up an item during the conference, you can go to the local B & N store, or online, and get that item for the same price as during the conference (but only from March 15-20).
Second, we still have a couple of spots to fill for our conference Meet the Pros session. Meet the Pros is really nice, because it is just a 10 minute chat (actually less, when you consider discussion and questions!) You have something cool at your school… so present it! All delegates that present at Meet the Pros get a copy of all Meet the Pro presenter handouts!! Wow! So…
Have you got a novel way to celebrate students (birthday calendar each month? Their face in a cut-out star that is taped to the cafeteria wall?)
Do you have a cool alternative to decorating with butcher paper?
What cool technology are you using in class?
Do you hold a leadership retreat?
Do you have a great MLK/Black History month assembly?
Share one of the amazing things that is happening at your school!
The presenter application is really easy to find on the website (wacaonline.org).
Get your application in TODAY!
Last thing...our conference theme is "Tune into Leadership." Along that vein, you have the opportunity to request songs to be played at the conference. Follow think link to make your requests.
Happy Valentine's Day tomorrow!
