With September quickly approaching, we figured it's about time we update everyone on our progress! We have lots of really cool professional development opportunities and social events planned for the coming year. More details on those will be available soon; check back for a detailed event calendar (which you should be able to synch to your device)!
The year's events will begin with the Orientation for the new teacher candidates on September 1st and 2nd. The ESS will be in the student lounge during the Orientation breaks (Thurs 2:00pm-2:15pm, Friday 10:15am-10:30am and 2:15pm-2:30pm) serving up tasty snacks and refreshments. We'd love to meet as many of you as possible and talk with you about Education and all of the awesome things the E.S.S. has to offer!
To top it all off, we are also having a "Welcome BBQ & Social" at The Sutherland on Friday September 2, starting at 7:00pm! Come join us for a burger and beverages/tokens, as well as beach volleyball - all for FREE! It's a great way to get to know your fellow teacher candidates and celebrate your entry in the college!
(We assure those of you who are under 19 or aren't interested in events like this, that there will be other kinds of awesome events throughout the year as well!)
Enjoy the last few weeks of summer vacation! Best of luck in classes, student teaching, internship, etc.! Don't hesitate to stop by the ESS office (EDUC 1009) if there's anything we can do to help you!
