If you missed our 'Welcome Back' meeting, here is what you missed.

Dear John Marshall Speech Team Students,
Rotarians and friends of the Rotary Clubs of Rochester would like to spend the day with you at Cascade Meadows for the first Rotary Ethics Workshop. You have been identified by district faculty as a natural leader who would enjoy experiencing a day-long immersion in ethics and ethical behavior. The program, originally developed for MBA students by a renowned ethics professor from the University of St. Thomas, provides you an opportunity to learn valuable lessons about conflicts and challenges often experienced with ethical decision making. It will be an exciting day!
EVENT: Rotary Ethics Workshop
WHEN: Tuesday, February 7, 2017
LOCATION: Cascade Meadow Wetlands & Environmental Science Center, 2900 19th St NW, Rochester
TRANSPORTATION: Students are being asked to provide their own transportation.
PARKING: Please carpool if possible, as parking is limited at Cascade Meadow. You may park in designated spots or along the side of the road.
REGISTRATION & BREAKFAST: 7:20-7:40 a.m. Please be prompt.
LUNCH: 11:35 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Lunch will be provided. Please email any dietary restrictions to email@example.com ASAP.
PROGRAM CONCLUDES: 3:00 p.m.
If interested, please contact Jayne Gibson, the RPS Director of Curriculum and Instruction, at JAGIBSON@rochester.k12.mn.us. (Please connect with her ASAP, as this is short notice: also, let her know that you're a member of the JM Speech team.)
Oh, AND they are also looking to train table leaders. This training would be Monday evening (the 6th) and would really help you grow some of your speech skills (ahem...especially discussants...) and leadership skills.
(Sorry this is so last minute: this was just shared with me it; however, I am excited that they'ave extended this invitation to each of you even if it is at the last minute...)
Also, FYI, Emma Gran and Nikhil Marda are already going to be there, so you'll see familiar faces!
