New Staff and Buddy Dinner

Welcome to our New Staff Members and Thanks to everybody who volunteered to be a "buddy" to a new staff member. Our first event is a pot-luck dinner scheduled for Thursday, October 8th. We will dine and socialize as our first priority, with a small amount of time reserved for gathering ideas and making plans for supportive activities throughout the year.

The location for the dinner is the Faullin household at 150 Staffordshire Court. Dinner will be served at 6:30, but we hope you arrive earlier so we can socialize and set up the great side dishes and deserts you have prepared. Two types of Lasagna will be provided along with drinks and paper products. Teachers and buddies will bring servings of breads, salads, appetizers or deserts to complete our meal.

The new teacher/buddy pairings are:
Marcela Beltran-Zarate supported by Nicole Price
Deb Gaillard supported by Demaire Anderson
Joey Adkins supported by Betty Ferguson
Paige Sipe supported by Kim Mason
Suzanne Sarfert supported by Anne Campbell
Angela Hunt supported by Janet Gauss
Earline Richardson supported by Doris Davis

Andy, Karon and myself are supportive of all and we hope that this linear grouping will evolve and take the shape of a interconnected web of friendship and support that will sustain all of us as we learn and teach at Brunson. If there are other supportive staff members who have been "buddies" yet have been left off this list, please come on out!! We want this group to be inclusive not exclusive. Call my cell if you have issues with the directions, 345-7727
