Hi everyone,
I hope you had a really terrific week and a half off. I always find this vacation the most relaxing. Anyway, we’re on the home stretch! Two more months and it’s summer!

As an FYI, I wanted to let you know that I am planning to have more in-service classes offered this summer so stay tuned! If there are any classes that you are planning to take for in-service this year, please sign up ASAP. By the end of this month, I’ll have to postpone the class until after June 30th if I see that there is low enrollment.

I already emailed you the following but just in case you missed it:

MESTRACT is offering a special workshop:Leading Instruction with the Brain in MindA National Staff Development Council presenter, Dr. Armstrong shows how current brain research is opening up new ways for us to reach our students. This special 4 hour workshop provides each participant with a copy of Dr. Armstrong’s book, Teaching Smarter with the Brain in Focus, published by Scholastic. Learn how to apply the current research to your classroom practice and have hundreds of “use tomorrow” strategies that will engage students and increase their understanding of any curricular area.
“This is a must-read for every K-12 teacher, so put it at the top of your professional study stack! Sarah Armstrong shows us how brain research informs best-practice teaching, how to work “smarter” – rather than harder – to plan and implement lessons, and how to really reach all learners. Readable, accessible, and chock full of success stories, you’ll return to parts of this book again and again as you plan, teach, reteach and assess.” Laura Robb, author, national consultant. Registration fee of $15.00 includes book. Professional hours are recommended for this workshop. Suitable for Grades K-12. Please register online at www.mestract.org
The workshop takes place on May 5th from 4-8 PM at the Courtyard by Marriott in Ronkonkoma, right off exit 60 on the LIE. Please call 631-345-3460 for any additional information.
