Hi Alissa,

It was so great to connect with 27 of the 32 Edmonton & Beyond APPLE Schools at the professional learning yesterday! One of my favourite parts of this job is connecting with you in person so I was really glad so many health champions were able to come. I am hoping to meet with you again at a priority setting meeting so my next step is to get that booked with you and your admin.

2015 Priority Setting Meeting
I would like to meet with you and your administrator for a priority setting meeting. Priority setting meetings typically take an hour and are a chance for you, your administrator and I to discuss the health priorities of your school community, discuss the process used to review and share the action plan, and identify any areas of support for this school year. I am very flexible on the length of the meeting and whether it is in person or over the phone or video conference. Please connect with your admin and send me 3 dates and times that I could connect with both of you in person or over the phone. Please submit your dates by Friday, October 9th, 2015.

Take care and have a great week,

Let me know if you would like me to come fro Read in Week! Maybe I can read about dinosaurs :)
