Early Years Standing Committee get together
May 2 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The Early Years Standing Committee has planned a get together for Thursday, May 2 at the Dunn Brothers Coffee in Arden Hills (1160 West, County Rd. E, Arden Hills, MN 55112). When you get there, ask for “Arthur’s Chapel”, it’s a cozy meeting space upstairs perfect for a group our size! Our meeting will start around 5:00 and go until roughly 7:00. No worries if you need to come late or leave early!
The meeting will operate somewhat like a PLC. Based on feedback in November, many are interested in learning (and sharing) strategies and promising practices for serving our youngest language learners. Therefore, please come prepared to share a lesson, strategy or tip that has served your students and their families well. Another topic that surfaced was “rules and regulations” for VPK. Please come with any specific questions you may have around this topic and I’m sure as a collective group we can find the answers! Additionally, our Standing Committee has been given a meeting budget; thus, you are encouraged to enjoy the coffee shop’s food and beverages! So, come hungry! :O)
Lastly, bring your calendars as we will choose a date for another meeting time in late summer or early September. Our third meeting for the calendar year will be at the MELEd conference in late November. We hope to see you in May!
