March Madness »

It’s been a crazy month!  Between the Book Fair, Spread the Word to End the Word, our Dinner Social, and other meetings, we have been plenty busy!  However, it’s not time for spring break yet.  Be sure to join us for our final meeting before spring break on Monday, March 19th!  Our guest speaker will be talking about how he is implementing the new Fl!pped Classroom system in his own classroom.

Also, keep in mind that elections for the 2012-2013 Executive Board are coming up in less than a month now!  Review the Constitution for a detailed look at what each position is responsible for, and be sure to fill out an Executive Team Application!
