Happy July SD-ACDA Friends!
I hope that you all had a wonderful 4th of July weekend!
I am excited to share with you that SD-ACDA will be having a Hump-day Happy Hour on Wednesday, July 15 at 5:00 pm central time, 4:00 pm mountain time via Zoom. This is a time to simply reconnect and find out how you are doing, REALLY doing, during this time of uncertainty. You will be receiving a Zoom link the week of July 13 to join the session. Please bring your favorite beverage and meet up with your music peeps for a fun and good discussion! Hope to see you then!
Additionally, I wanted to remind you about our upcoming first ever SD-ACDA Virtual Conference, which will take place in your homes/offices/decks/patios on Wednesday and Thursday, July 29 and 30. The schedule, presenter bios, and registration information is attached to this email. Remember that the cost is only $25 for the early bird registration, which is until July 15! This information is also on the website: www.sd-acda.org.
Even though we won't meet in person, this is a tremendous opportunity to "see" our colleagues and friends, and get some great ideas moving forward as we plan for a new school year, in the midst of many unknowns.
Hopefully you have been able to read the document from the ACDA national committee response team on Covid 19, which was sent out on June 15. This is a very well written document that may help navigate some ideas and thoughts regarding on how to proceed in our current world. This document is also on the SD-ACDA Website. I know there are many questions during this time, and several studies that are being worked on regarding Covid and teaching. I believe that some of this information will come out later this month. I will try to keep you posted on what I find out.
Please email me with question or thoughts, or if I can help you in any way.
Have a great day!!
