Summer Seminar Recap

The 2008 Summer Seminars appeared to serve their purpose. Facilitators had a chance to learn new things from a variety of presenters, network with one another, dance, and even strike up a little competition.

Summertime with EAST

Summer is a time to reflect and renew and no group does a better job of collaborating for success than EAST facilitators. Every summer, as part of their ongoing professional development, active facilitators from across the Initiative gather to learn from each other and from experts in the field as they prepare to take their programs to the next level. It’s fun, it’s exciting, it’s invigorating…most of all it’s EAST.

This year we're holding two seminars - one in Kahului, Maui, Hawaii and one in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Take your pick, register today, and we'll see you this summer!

Who Should Attend?

All primary or co-facilitators that are responsible for an EAST classroom must attend one of the seminars. Your back-up is not required to attend but is definitely welcome. If you will not be able to attend, we need a written letter signed by your principal documenting this decision. This letter needs to be sent to Melanie Ridlon by or before the registration date of Friday, May 16, 2008.

How Should I Prepare?

Dress is casual for all events

Please bring constructive ideas, a willingness to work with others, and an enthusiasm for EAST. You should also plan to bring at least one of the required items for the prize drawing.

Remember to update ALL of your contact information in your profile on the EAST website. This will help us get in touch with you during the summer if needed. Remember attendance is required. If you have any questions, please contact Melanie Ridlon at melanie@eastproject.org.

We look forward to seeing you there!
