A Time to be Thankful:I hope you and your family had a wonderful break and an opportunity to reflect our many blessings. STUCO lead our chapel this past week and gave a great witness on how we can give thanks to God for the little things as well as the big things. Students donated a wealth of food to provide for the seminarian Thanksgiving meals and to help stock their food pantry.
Thanks to you for helping celebrate my birthday as well. I look forward to spending the Together We're Better gift certificate.

Educators' ConferenceTeachers had a wonderful two days at our Educators Conference. The focus of our experience was Professional Learning Communities, which - it a nutshell - is linking teachers together to share resources. I met some fantastic teachers from around the state who shared terrific teaching ideas, project ideas, and web resources. It was an uplifting experience and I thank PTL for making this professional development experience possible.
