Can you believe we're just about a week away from Sac conference?!
A few things:
1.) Annual Support Campaign
You should've received an email with information about the support campaign. All delegates and their families are expected to participate. Delegates are needed to help with the kick-off dinner tomorrow, Feb 10, in the conference room. Please plan to arrive at 5:15pm to help. Parents are invited to attend.
Campaign training will be offered (and it will be brief) promptly at the start of next week's delegation meeting to parents and delegates.
Each family will be responsible for a minimum of 20 campaign calls. (What are these calls? All will be explained at the training.) The money raised by Y&G delegates and families goes back into our pot for next year.
2.) Dress Code Dress Rehearsal
If you have not yet attended a meeting in FULL, COMPLIANT dress code attire, you need to wear dress code attire to the Monday meeting. The dress code is attached to this email for your reference.
- Foot/leg coverings are required at all times (ie: female delegates in skirts/dresses must wear hosiery of some sort; female and male delegates in pants must have socks/trouser socks/knee-highs/tights/etc as appropriate as well.)
- Female delegates: anything that is a boot or boot-like shoe (ankle boots, calf, knee, whatever) - the top of the shoe MUST be covered by the bottom of whatever you are wearing: ie skirts must cover the top of boots. So no knee-length dress with ankle boots.
- Male delegates: vests alone do not count as a covering for your dress shirt and tie. You must have a suit jacket/blazer/full sweater covering you at all times between 8am and 10pm
- After 10pm, casual dress is allowed, so long as it is still in-line with general dress standards (ie: no flip-flops, no pajama pants outside of your hotel room)
3.) Parent letter slip
The parent letter is again attached to this email. Parents: please sign and return the slip. You do not need to return the signed code of conduct again. So far I have received slips from:
If your name does not appear above, please either return the slip next Monday or reply to this email acknowledging you have read the conference information. (If you did give me a slip and I didn't list your name, let me know)
4.) Awards, Governing Board, and CONA applications
Due at the start of the conference
5.) Really, no one wants a free lunch during conference?
If you don't know what I'm talking about, you should re-read the Feb 3 Reminders email.
