Lambda Chapter meets in Rugby

Twelve area educators and three guests were present at the March 23 meeting. Lambda Chapter, Delta Kappa Gamma, is an international society for key women educators. Cynthia Jelleberg, North Central Education Cooperative Director, was the program guest and shared much about educational issues and her job as director. There are eight regional cooperatives in North Dakota and each school in North Dakota is a member of one of these. Areas of focus in each cooperative are: curriculum enhancement, technology, school improvement, professional development, and data gathering. Common core curriculum is being developed in North Dakota and other states, and this is to prepare students for college and career readiness. This focus was begun by the governors association, not the federal government.

The next meeting will be April 20th at Joanne McCarty’s home near York. Members from the Bottineau, Rugby, Towner, Rolla, Cando, Devils Lake, Knox, Kramer, and Wolford areas will share a morning brunch and have the enjoyment of learning about “Stained Glass.” Three new members will be initiated into the society. They are Khloe Sobolik, Rugby: Joanne McCarty, York; and Rhonda Condit, Bottineau.
