A Few Words From The President

Hi Oregon Physical Educators! I hope that the month of January is going well for you. As your president I am working hard with the Board of Directors on continuing our growth as an organization. There is a lot on the horizon for Oregon SHAPE. As stated before my main goals as president are improving our communications with members and creating multiple opportunities for quality professional development throughout the year for Oregon Physical Educators. We are currently working to create a half day workshop that will take place at Concordia University in May. This will be a free workshop from 9-1PM focused on the current best practices in physical education with an emphasis on using technology. More details to come soon on this. Secondly, we are currently working to secure the site for the Oregon SHAPE conference which will take place in October of 2015! Lastly, the SHAPE America Convention is coming up in March. This year as you know it's going to be in Seattle. If you need help trying to convince your administration that you should go below is a resource the SHAPE has put together to help justify your trip. Please don't hesitate to ask any questions.
