Cedar Valley Alliance & Chamber New Teacher Breakfast

"Creating great leaders one habit at a time" was the theme for the 2015 New Teacher Breakfast hosted by the Cedar Valley Alliance & Chamber. The event was held on Thursday, August 20 at 7:30 a.m. at the Park Place Events Centre. 

Cedar Valley Catholic Schools were a Gold Sponsor. The system welcomed ten new teachers to our schools. Dr. Dale Monroe answered questions from Blessed Maria Assunta Pallotta (BMAP) Middle School student, Dylan Mack, during the program. 

Teachers from all three Cedar Valley districts were welcomed and informed during the lively student leader driven program. A sumptuous breakfast was served by the Park Place Centre staff. CVCS welcomes 10 new teachers to our school system. Welcoming: Cory O'Brien, Kerry Merrifield, Melissa Airy, Brittany Balde, Ben Barnett, Katelyn Ploessi, Ashley Vonderhaar, Elizabeth Matheson, Amanda Neff, and Debbie Condra.

Five BMAP Leader in Me students helped with the program. Two students provided piano music in the lobby while new teachers arrived. Two more students answered questions about the Leader in Me. One student, Dylan Mack, served as an MC during the welcome program. We have amazing, talented students in our schools and they did us proud again today! New Teacher Breakfast Photo Album

Fund-A-Cause Makes A Difference
