PD, PD, and MORE PD!

There are tons of opportunities for Professional Development! Some opportunities are for this summer, most for next school year but need to be registered for now. I strongly encourage at least one teacher per grade level (preschool, primary, intermediate, middle, specials) to attend INPEC - it's going to be a GREAT conference!

If you would like to attend any of these PD opportunities, please let Sally know prior to registering. I need to watch our PD dollars. Thanks!

As teachers, we are called to continually enter into and deepen our personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The Formation Day for the Diocese of Evansville is just one opportunity to do just that.
