Happy Summertime!
  It’s that time again to make plans to attend our annual retreat for all directors and board members. Please use this web address:
to reserve your rooms at the reduced state rate. Our rate is good for Wednesday through Friday night. After next week, they will release the rooms set aside for WCTE. Browse the site to learn of parking and a great breakfast included for overnight guests in the newly updated Lowell Center. 
  We are lucky to have Millie Davis, NCTE Director of the Division of Communications and Affiliate Services, with us Thursday morning for some team-building. Also our new DPI Liaison, Tamara Maxwell, will update us on the state of the state and share her grammar initiative. Lynn Aprill has special plans for our District Directors. Lynn and I will be just back from the Affiliate Leadership Summit to bring you the latest from NCTE. And together we will set the course for WCTE next year.  
  REMEMBER, I need digital copies of your reports to post on our newly updated web page. So please prepare your reports to arrive in my email no later than Monday, July 23rd.  Having them before will really streamline our meeting time.
  Please RSVP By July 9 so the Pyle Center charges us only for those present. After I receive your RSVP, I’ll forward you our agenda and your meal choices. Plan to dine out on the town together Thursday. 
Looking forward to seeing you,
Kathy        (new email: nelson@arrowheadschools.org )
