Hi Alissa,

I'm looking forward to seeing most of the Health Champions at the APPLE Schools Professional Learning on Sept. 28th. One of my favourite parts of my job is building relationships and there will be plenty of opportunities for us to connect on the 28th. An agenda and more details regarding the day will be sent out on Wednesday, Sept. 23rd.

This week I am preparing for the professional learning day, attending a few Welcome Back BBQs, networking with community partners at an event hosted by the Alberta Centre for Active Living and leading a PD session for a few schools. I'll be in and out of the office all week but I am always available through my cell phone or email so please let me know if there is anything I can help you with.

Hope you're enjoying the crisp, fall air,
