Announcements

These Announcements were submitted to the Monday Memo by University Community Members (employees, students and retirees). Announcement submissions must be received by Thursday at noon for publication on the following Monday. To submit your Monday Memo item, use the Submit Announcement and choose "General Announcement" or "Notice" as the Announcement Type. You may also submit announcements by email to monday.memo@enmu.edu. Announcements can only be accepted from off–campus groups that are non–profit and the announcements should have some relevance to ENMU (such as seeking ENMU volunteers).

Monday Memo Deadline – The deadline for submissions to the Monday Memo is noon on the Thursday prior to the Monday publication. Submissions may be sent via e–mail to monday.memo@enmu.edu.

Monday Memo Summer Publication Schedule – The Monday Memo publishes every other week during the summer. The next issue will be Monday, June 24.

New Web Launching Soon – The new web page will be launched at the end of June and those that have seen it are very impressed. The web staff thinks that the Eastern constituents will be proud to show it to colleagues from other schools. In order to provide a more consistent graphic image for Eastern, a new letterhead, envelopes and other pieces have been redesigned to resemble the look of the web. This is what ENMU will use this fall or as soon as University Printing Services runs out of the existing stock. There will be a period that ENMU will use both formats because of the need to use up old stock across campus.

Please contact Communication Services at 562.2154 with questions or feedback. Your input is appreciated.

A.E.O.P., Summer Time and the Living Is Easy – Although it's not officially summer, it sure feels like it. So, you are invited to join us for a "cool" time on Tuesday, June 11, at noon in the Music Building lounge.

Sharon Johnson and Carolyn Edwards are our hostesses and will be providing (just bring your appetite) a variety of refreshing salads and delicious deserts along with a tall glass of cold lemonade. Sharon and Carolyn will also share some personal and professional experiences with us for a short program.

Please come and bring a guest with you, but be so kind as to call Sharon (ext. 2320) or Carolyn (ext. 2123) and RSVP (We sure want to have plenty to eat!). Hope to see you there!

Administrators' Evaluations Set for Fall – Since 2001, administrative employees have been evaluated by their supervisors in March and April to finalize their contracts in May–June. Employee evaluations of administrators in spring cannot be tallied and transcribed in time for a March–April review; for example, supervisory evaluations of administrators this spring will be using employee evaluations of administrators completed in March 2001. So the Administrators' Evaluation Committee, with the approval of Support, Professional and Faculty Senates, has decided to move the evaluation process of administrators to fall. If you have any questions or comments, please contact Linda Gies, Chair of the Administrators' Evaluation Committee, at 562–2642, or by e–mail: linda.gies@enmu.edu.

Walk the Talk Scheduled – Walk the Talk, a technology immersion program, will be held for the fourth year at ENMU–Portales, July 30 through August 3, and Lake Arthur Schools May 29–31 and July 25–26. Walk the Talk is a three–hour graduate level class supporting teachers and administrators as they design quality high–tech and online curriculum to use in schools. If you are working on a master's degree in education or just need to improve your technology integration in the classroom, this is the course for you.

Walk the Talk will provide hands–on instruction for teachers and administrators as they learn to apply Microsoft Office tools (PowerPoint, Excel, Access etc.), Web–Design, Online Lesson Development, and Internet Tools in classroom environments. Participants work on a computer the entire week and are guided through a process of designing and using technology to
benefit students, parents and themselves.

Classes are facilitated by classroom teachers who have successfully integrated technology into their classroom with diverse student populations. Instructors show student examples and have many resources that participants can use in their classrooms. All participants receive free copies of Microsoft Office, instructional software and materials to use in their classrooms.

Walk the Talk has a website to view some of the current work being produced by teachers and administrators. The web address is http://errc.enmu.edu.
