This Week ....

Having just returned from our regional Curriculum Committee Meetings, I was asked to do a little advertising for our colleagues in San Diego ..... This year's NCEA Convention & Expo will be hosted by the Diocese of San Diego (March 29-31st). If you are considering attending, please know that Title IIA funds can be utilized (it is my understanding that Title IIA will cover 85% of the costs). The video link included below is a message from San Diego's amazing Superintendent, John Galvan! For all information pertaining to this year's convention, please visit: http://ncea.org/convention/convention-and-expo

Calling all book-lovers! The Vegas Valley Book Festival returns this Thursday through Sunday ... The Festival is marking its 14th year with a variety of activities and interests for readers of all ages!

Have a terrific week!
