UEA Convention and Education Exposition
I learned about what will be happening at the UEA Convention this year, and it sounds great! The number of sponsors, exhibitors, and classes is much bigger than ever before. If you have never attended the UEA Convention, this is the year to come! It will be Thursday and Friday, October 18-19 at South Towne Expo Center. Plan to attend. Highlights include:
8:00 - NEA Vice President Lily Eskelsen and UEA President Sharon Gallagher-Fishbaugh
12:30 - Meet the Candidates with Governor Herbert and other recommended candidates with a hot dog lunch for $5
2:30 - "Mitchell 20" movie screening and discussion
4:00 - Jazz Bear tip off on Book-a-Basket book giveaway for making a basket
8:00 - Harry and Rosemary Wong with book signing at 12:30
New Educator Workshops throughout the day
JEA members will receive a ticket for free health screenings and pampering.
In the program that will be sent to you the end of September, you will receive tickets to give to parents and non-members, so they can attend for free. Regular admission price is $5. See UEA website for more detailed information.
