STRAWBERRY SOCIAL AND POTLUCK THIS SATURDAY!

strawberry3Liz Townsend is hosting a strawberry social and potluck at her home on Saturday, 09-July-2016 from 3pm-7pm!  If you have not RSVP’d to Liz, please do so, so that we can get a better estimate of numbers.

A Sign-Up Genius has been also been set-up to help plan the the potluck. In addition to the berries, Liz will have some hamburgers & hot dogs ready for the barbecue. This is a family-friendly event for faculty, staff, sessionals!  We realize that some won’t make it given their involvement in 1-week intensive teaching & other summer events. If you can come, a map and all the details can be found here.

NEW STUDENTS ON CAMPUS

Summer is an extremely busy time of year here in the Faculty of Education, and we are excited by the energy our students bring to the Faculty!  This week we have two new cohorts starting in our graduate studies program, and several cohorts taking classes on campus!  BEd students are also progressing along in their programs.

Thanks to everyone for their contribution to our programs and our students!
