I hope that you’re having a good week, and slowly digging out of all of this weather. ;-)
WACA is next week! And I have a few last minute details to share with you.
- You’ve probably just received an email from our treasurer Norm Sanford, informing you about SCHED. SCHED is our online conference program. It will give lots of explanations and details of the offerings at the conference. It also has options for you to select your sessions… so it builds a schedule for you. There will be a few printed conference programs, but most people will be using SCHED. Will that work on my flip-phone?! ;-)
- If you want to participate in our area give-away baskets, remember to bring your favorite chocolate for our chocolate basket, your favorite movie or movie treat for our movie basket, and your favorite “grape beverage” for our “give and take”. And of course, I’ll have some other give-aways to share throughout the conference.
- A quick note about conference attire: As a rule, attire is casual (jeans!). Some folks will dress up a bit for Thursday’s Hall of Fame banquet, but that’s an option. And on Friday, attire is school attire – represent your home school! On a personal note, I’ll remind you that it’s dramatically cold right now in the Tri-Cities – my students were celebrating this morning, because it was almost 30 degrees by the start of school! It’s supposed to stay cold next week, so dress warmly.
- Finally, thanks to everyone who is attending – we have 27 of us from Area 8. And thanks to those of you who are presenting.
Okay, my friends. I will see you soon. Travel carefully!
