I am happy to report we have already had a few PDK sponsored activies that have taken place in support of these goals. We were very glad to see many of you at our very first Fall Membership Meeting and New Member Induction ceremony last month. We welcome to the chapter, new members Dustin Burghardt, Roger Caswell, Edward Church, and Andrew Smith.
I am also happy to report a successful 2011 Read for the Record event this past October 6th. Thanks to the efforts of chapter members, Jane Eberle, Mirah Dow, and the Future Educators Association ® of Emporia High School and their sponsor, Ms. Carmaine Ternes, as well as other Emporia State University students and faculty who volunteered their time, we were able to read Anna Dewdney's Llama Llama Red Pajama to more than 1200 students. More information about each of these events can be viewed in this newsletter.
Upcoming events include a Book Talk featuring the book Education Nation by Milton Chen on November 16, 2011 and the National Teachers Hall of Fame Induction. We hope you will join us for each of these events which not only support our chapter goals but also the mission of PDK to support education.
