Pull Tabs: A quick and easy way to make a difference. SNEA/KDP is collecting pull tabs in support of the Ronald McDonald House. Save aluminum tabs from soft drinks, soup cans, etc. in a small ziplock bag and drop them off periodically in the Education office (Dr. Mather's box) or give to any SNEA/KDP officer or member. This is an ongoing project with no deadline, so please help the children and their families who stay at the Ronald McDonald house.

Monday! Jan 18th, “What Will Your First Year of Teaching Be Like?” Listen to a panel of first year teachers talk about their first year of teaching and offer helpful suggestions. Gary Hall Lounge, 12:15 - 1:20 p.m. Light lunch is provided. Everyone is welcome!
Do you like Dr. Seuss? Do children like Dr. Seuss? The overwhelming answer is yes! Plan ahead and reserve some time March 4th. We will be helping to celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday as part of Read across America. We will be reading to PK-1st graders at Bill Wallace Early Childhood Center and 2nd-4th graders at Grand. If you would be willing to read for just 20-30 minutes to a class (yes, the teacher will be there for those of you who fear small children) just let me know what time(s) work best for you. You can sign up for a shift anytime during the day starting from 8:50a.m. through 2:30p.m. (the latter is a start time). This is open to students, faculty, staff, and townspeople. This will be part of the Drover Difference project, although all other activities related to that will be on Friday March 4th. Being a part of Drover Difference means you can have a Drover Difference t-shirt. So if you are interested in the shirt as well as reading, let me know the size for your t-shirt. Hope you can join us for the seussebration.
