A morning session, from 9 a.m. to noon, is aimed at teams of students from public and private school fifth through eighth grades. They’ll hear strategies to defuse and reduce bullying and then will create preliminary plans to carry the message back to their schools. An afternoon workshop, from 1 to 4 p.m., is geared to parents and community members and will focus on the trends and dimensions of bullying behavior and ways to counter them.

Mark your calendars, FETC’s 2009 Virtual Conference is scheduled for the Apr 23rd! FETC is one of the largest educational technology conferences in the US, and each year hosts an on-site and virtual conference for educators and technology specialists. I’ve registered and Mr. Kmeicik and I will be attending - we invite you to stop in and catch a session or two. Conference kicks-off at Thursday, April 23rd, in the DSHA Boardroom with a live keynote from 10am-11am with Dr. Steven Paine, State Superintendent of the West Virginia Dept. of Education.
Please RSVP to Mrs.GMueller by Wednesday, April 22nd if you plan on attending, and which session you’d prefer that hour - this way we can plan alternate locations if 2 sessions are viewed simultaneously.
