October is bringing fall colors on the trees here in the mountains of North Carolina. The temperatures have started to cool off but our schedule has not.
Yesterday we had our fall board meeting, which has left us with an exciting outlook for the next year and much to do. We have some new additions to our board that are bringing new ideas and are very excited to be a part of Camp Spring Creek’s vision.
Last week we started our assessments in Mitchell County for our teachers who are in the advanced training. We will continue to assess students this week. Once the students have been assessed, Susie will begin going into these classrooms to help guide the teachers as they begin implementing Orton-Gillingham to their reading instruction.
Susie will be picking up Heather Reddenbach, who is visiting from Vancouver, in Greenville SC and taking her to see Sandhills Academy before the Fellows seminar on Friday being held at The Key Learning Center of Carolina Day School.
We now have nine committed campers for the 2013 season, a record for Camp Spring Creek on its first day of our fiscal year.
We welcome autumn with excitement just as the leaves are changing colors we are learning, growing and changing all the time.
