Adult Spanish Class [REPEAT]

Want to be able to communicate with students in Spanish? Adult Spanish Classes through Literacy Forsyth will be offered Mondays/Wednesdays beginning March 14th at West Forsyth High School and run 5:45-7:45 for 8 weeks. Participants will pay a $25 registration fee, and Title III will pay the remainder of the course fee for Forsyth County employees. This is open to any staff that has regular interaction with Title III (ESOL) parents/students. Title III has reserved 15 seats in this course. Enrollment is on a first come, first served basis and will close once we reach 15 participants. The form to sign up can be found HERE. Please let me know if you have questions. Gracias!

EdCamp Forsyth-February 6 [REPEAT]

EdCamp Forsyth is a half-day, professional development opportunity to learn from and share with your classroom peers. EdCamp Forsyth is an unconference - there is no preset agenda, no vendors, no calls for proposals. The discussion topics are set by the participants themselves at the beginning of the day, and knowledgeable participants serve as their own facilitators in the breakout sessions.

There aren't many rules, but there is one important one: the Rule of Two Feet. If you're in a session and you're not getting something worthwhile - or you feel like you're not contributing - feel free to use your two feet to go to another session. All session information - topics, room locations, etc. - will be hosted online, so you can easily figure out where to go next.
