Summer Conference

Today I leave for Summer Conference, the annual FACS and other career tech programs conference for teachers in Springfield. I'll be bringing back ideas for the school year for FCCLA and our classes.

But before I go, I wanted to let you know that our FCCLA theme for the year has already been chosen and we'll try to integrate it into our classes too.

So here's your hint:
School will be starting sooner than you think!
Be sure to read and answer the poll to the right.

Be ready! Be Part Of It!

The National Leadership Conference (NLC) is now underway. You can follow along and see what's up as the week progresses. Already information has been released that Children's Miracle Network will be the National Service Project for this coming year.

CMN is close to my heart and I will tell you about it if you ask.

You can follow NLC several ways:

Follow on Twitter using FCCLA09 in the search engine.

Are you paying attention? Extra Credit!!

If you visit our FACS/FCCLA blog
(that means THIS blog) and post a comment about an entry, I will give you 1 point extra credit for the quarter.
Of course, no fair going back and commenting on every post just so you don't have to do your classwork. The comment must be timely, within a week of the original post, relevant and appropriate and have your first name and last initial (class hour if your name is common).

This works for the summer as well as for school breaks.

Just checking to see if you are paying attention!
