It will be from 8:00 - 11:00 a.m. Guest speaker, Tina Boogren, will be here to talk to us about the importance of self-care and give us some specific (easy) ways to ensure that we are putting ourselves first so that we can then serve others.

* Afternoon will consist of Parliament time, TELPAS training, and a few other things. (OHI)

* Students return to school on January 8. We need to make sure and take that day and maybe one more to ensure that we review expectations with all students.
