How’s it going? Great, I hope! ;-)
I have two 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). Pretty cool, huh?
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! ;-) For example, I’ve been using leadership camp cheers and positive songs during football and basketball games this year. It really promotes spirit, and keeps the climate positive. And we’ve had amazing success, and a lot of fun. This is the kind of thing that is great for Meet the Pros. 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? (I have a flip-phone still, so you’ll have to fill in the details here!)
- Do you hold a leadership retreat?
- Do you have a great MLK/Black History month assembly?
Oh, by the way, the presenter application is really easy to find on the website (wacaonline.org). ;-)
And no pressure, but Area 8 is basically hosting this conference, since it’s in Kennewick. Let’s represent!!
Hey, have a great day everyone! And Happy Valentine’s Day tomorrow. (Our choir goes around all day delivering “val-o-grams” and singing in the halls. It’s really cool, creates a wonderful climate, and highlights the music program. Hey… that could be a Meet the Pros topic!)
Best to you,
