SFT, KDP and MECC Club Meeting

Thursday, Sep 20th 2012 at 7-8:30pm

36600 Schoolcraft Rd

Livonia, MI

You are invited to become part of our Society of Future Teachers (SFT), Kappa Delta Pi honor society (KDP), and/or Madonna Early Childhood Club (MECC)! Join us in room 2423 for a kick off event that will allow you to join one or more of these organizations.

All three organizations are sponsoring a short presentation from a local storyteller, who will demonstrate storytelling, and offer tips for teachers and others who work with children to use when they share stories with their students. Following her presentation, each club will hold a brief business meeting.

Come and learn what each organization is all about. We'll have light refreshments, and take photos you can use as part of your portfolio. If you have any questions, please call the College of Education office, 734.432.5644.

The Center for Michigan "aims to engage thousands of people across Michigan in these discussions through the end of 2012 in hopes of ensuring that the perspectives of Michigan residents on education are fully considered in the 2012 elections and by the newly elected state legislators once they reach Lansing in January 2013. The Center is a 501(c)3 nonprofit and nonpartisan organization. We never endorse political parties or candidates.”
