Last week we finished assessing students in Mitchell County for the advanced training provided by the Janirve and Wal-Mart grants. This week Susie will start heading into the classrooms to watch and help implement strategies.  We are very glad that children in our community are getting the tools needed to help them learn. 

Susie spent Thursday with Heather Beddenbach, from Fraser Academy in Vancouver; they went on tours at Sandhills School, Camperdown Academy, and Camp Spring Creek before heading to The Key School for the Fellows seminar on Friday and Saturday.  We have been enjoying Diana Hanbury King who has spent Sunday and Monday with us at Camp Spring Creek.

We are very excited that we already have ten campers who have committed for next summer. Our first Camp Spring Creek reunion is set for November 9th in Charleston, SC.
