iRead Kickoff Meeting
Friday, September 18,
3:30-7:30, Board Room, CGEC

Since our meeting goes so late, we will be having having a few snacks.  
If you require something more substantial, feel free to bring it.

Our meeting is designed for those new to iRead, however Veteran iRead teachers are welcome to attend - a good opportunity to catch up and review (if you are a Veteran attending, please RSVP with Kathy Franklin so we can have a "goodie count").

Newbies please bring:
- a laptop, if you have one
- Audio CDs from your textbook(s).  If you have CDs that read content to students, please bring some.
