Welcome back! We hope that you had a great break and had time to get away from school and enjoy this summer’s outstanding weather. As the leadership of Maine Association for Middle Level Education (MAMLE), we would like to take this opportunity to share with you exciting news about your statewide middle level association.
Did you know that MAMLE is the only educational association in Maine designed to meet the specific needs for the students and staff within our grade levels? MAMLE provides outstanding professional development and support focusing on the educational, academic, social, and emotional needs of our emerging adolescents as well as those topics trending in the field of the middle level education.
Once again, MAMLE’s annual conference will be held on October 23 and 24 at the Point Lookout Resort and Conference Center in beautiful Northport, Maine. Point Lookout, located on Route One just north of Camden, is an easy ride from all areas of the state.
We are very excited about this year’s conference program. We have two-days jam packed with exceptional presenters, sessions, and keynote speakers who are committed to the improvement of middle level education. Highlighting this year’s program are our keynoters, nationally recognized teacher-leader, Nancy Doda and Maine’s Middle Level Principal of the Year, Matt Nelson.
You will find no conference more affordable yet more valuable than MAMLE’s fall conference. The cost to attend for both days is only $195. A one-day registration is just $135. Complete information regarding registration, housing, and this year’s program can be found on the MAMLE website (http://mainemamle.org/conference/).
Please take time to take a look at the conference program and consider sending a team of educators to the conference. There is a special rate for teams of six or more. Contact Wally Alexander at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details on a group discount.
There is no middle level conference at the state, regional, or national level that delivers a more comprehensive middle level program at an affordable cost than our own fall conference. It is a solid investment for your students, staff, and school.
We hope to see you at Point Lookout on October 23 and 24. For more information regarding MAMLE and this year’s conference go to www.mainemamle.org. And remember to like us on Facebook.
