WaSLA Spring Conference – Postponed until Spring 2021
Dear Friends of WaSLA,
We are writing to let you know that it is with disappointment that we have to postpone the March 14, 2020 WaSLA conference, “Ink & Ideas: Sketchnotes for Engagement, Comprehension and Thinking” with Heinemann author Tanny McGregor. This is due to the current outbreak of Covid-19 occurring in Western WA, coupled with an abundance of caution on the part of Seattle Public Schools, as our planned venue is no longer available right now.
We are already working with Tanny to reschedule this event for the spring of 2021; most likely about a year after the original conference date. We will be sure to keep you on our outreach list with all the new conference information as a new date is chosen. We will also be in touch about our Fall 2020 WaSLA conference, in the works now, and currently scheduled for Saturday, November 14, 2020.
Our apologies for having to postpone this exciting conference for the time being, and we look forward to welcoming you to attend when the new date is chosen!
Yours in literacy learning,
President, Washington State Literacy Association
