Professional Development Weekend - Nov. 17-18

This weekend the PEISTA is hosting a professional development weekend at the Loyalist Lakeview Resort on Harbour Drive in Summerside. On Friday evening we will open with dinner (salmon or chicken), followed by private meetings for all three Island boards, and then an evening of entertainment. (Bring your singing voices - we have karaoke!)

On Saturday morning, Linda Lowther from the Department of Education will present a report card on the recent Provincial Task Force on Education. The presentation will begin at 9:00 a.m., following a buffet breakfast.

Hope to see you all there!

Oh, and take note of the PD weekend password: Rockets. The first trustee to provide the password, when asked (not before!), will win a prize.
