#EdCampPCTX - October 1st

Edcamp Parker County, TX is fast approaching! It will take place October 1st from 8:30 to 12:30 at Weatherford High School. Already 125 people have registered, representing over 15 districts and private schools. People are coming from nearby counties as well. It is sure to be an energizing morning of learning and connecting!

Door prizes are being gathered and include signed copies of some of the top education related books, digital tools and licenses, and we just received notification that Ipevo is donating two interactive white board systems and a document camera!

This year, we have invited our iSchool student advocates to attend, as well as the student teaching interns from WHS. It will be exciting to have students learning alongside teachers. In addition, we have asked for student volunteers to help direct participants and to assist where needed.
