What's this Update all about?
So, we decided to try this: we'll send out a weekly (maybe more often if needed) update to all of you using this S'more newsletter. Each time we send the newsletter out, the updated information will be at the top, but all past information can be found by just scrolling down. This way, the newsletter will be regularly updated and you won't have to go back to look through emails to find information. We hope this will be helpful!
Announcement, Announcement: Director of Curriculum and Instruction to work across both campuses!
We have decided, however, to create at least one cross-campus position: Director of Curriculum and Instruction. This position was posted late last week, and we want to make sure all current staff is aware of it–both so that you can spread the word and because one or more of you may wish to apply. If you do want to apply for this position, please apply on-line and send an email directly to Christy so that we know that you are interested and can follow-up.
Status Check: Where are we with hiring?
Status check: Where are we with the building and getting space for the school?
We have had successful conversations with key leadership at the OJC and have gotten preliminary commitments from them to support the expanded program. We have a long way to go, but are going to be relentless and creative. For example, we are talking about possibly converting some large kitchen/warming rooms into art and science classes (they have sinks, drains, etc. :)). Noting is off the table. Our goal is to get 50 older teens and young adults into classes with committed adults–someway, somehow!
