Summer Slice Vol. VI

LA Staff News

Professional Development Committee Representative Needed for LA

Your role would be the liaison between our school and the PDC. You would be required to attend a few meetings per year, and have a few duties (primarily with our new staff) during New Teacher Institute in August.


This position must be voted on by the staff, so either let me know you are interested or I'll be calling you to ask you if you are interested!! Don't everyone jump at once.


I want to put a vote out next week, so don't delay! (Unless you are Paul who is not reading my emails until August)

What does an LA staffer do in the summer??

Christine's summer has been jam packed! She has been to Cub Scout Camp, Boy Scout Camp, St. Louis, Omaha, and chaperoned a youth retreat with her daughter. She is gearing up for the big trip across the country, stopping in 5 states, on July 14th!! Safe travels, Christine!
