I thought I had asked to say a bit about the State Superintendent’s Task Force on the Arts and Creativity in Education, but evidently not. Would there be time for me to describe briefly the Action Plan and how it relates to WSMTE?

Just a quick reminder and an update about our upcoming meeting. Our meeting of the Wisconsin Society for Music Teacher Education will be held on Saturday, February 28th, from 10 to 3 in Noel Fine Arts Center, room 221, at UWSP. Thanks to Judy Bond for making the meeting arrangements! While there, we have a great opportunity to have lunch with CMENC students who are attending their mini-conference on the same day at UWSP! Here are the lunch details:
Lunch is in the DEBOT Dining Room, a short walk from the Noel Fine Arts Center where we’re having our meeting. It’s going to be $6.50 per person, and WSMTE members who want to join this lunch with the students will buy a ticket from CMENC. No advance notice or reservation is necessary, but it would be great if we could get an idea of the number of people who plan to attend and have lunch with CMENC students. Please let me know if you plan to attend (this will also help us know how many handouts to make) and if you plan to have lunch with the students.
I know that not all of us will be able to attend and I am so sorry that finding a date to match everyone’s schedule was impossible. Here is a tentative agenda and please let me know if you want something added or deleted:
See you soon,
