New Teacher Retreat

Montana Catholic Schools August 17th & 18th

What is Your Personal Mission Statement?

All new teachers (1st or 2nd year) as well as all experienced teachers interested in a "faith refresher" are invited to the Ursuline Centre in Great Falls on August 17th & 18th. Nationally known Roy Petitfils, a counselor, writer, and speaker, will lead the retreat and help teachers find their personal mission statement. Included in the retreat is fellowship time as well as workshops on classroom management and other relevant topics. Rooms are available on Sunday night for those travelling long distances, as well as Monday night for all but the Great Falls residents. This is a great opportunity to make connections to Catholic school teachers across the state, deepen your faith, and get charged up for the new year!
