*Message sent to District 5 and Section 15 Teachers

Hi Everyone-
I wanted to give you a heads up of my limited activity this week. 
First – The Farm Credit Services building that I have operating out of for the last 14 years will be sold later this year. August 1st, the FCS staff at the Belleville location will be moving to Highland and Red Bud. Just a few weeks, some great, reasonable and close to home office space came available. We worked out the details to get credit from my old lease to pay the remainder of the new lease.  The last week I have been moving all of my stuff and am now moved in though not totally unpacked. If you do send me anything via the US mail, please use this address below. The new office phone number has not been worked out yet, so if you need to reach me, please call my cell number.  As the new office number comes available, I will send out another email with this information.
Second – Taylor, our oldest daughter, qualified for level 9 national gymnastics recently, so my family and I are traveling to Boston this week(Wednesday thru Sunday) for her competition on Friday.  We are very proud of her making it this far. Great timing as all has come at once...right during the school year. Wish that it was in July though it will all work out.
Things are kind of hectic right now.  I will try to get to your email requests about the graduate survey and other items as soon as I have some time from the hotel.  It may not be until later next week that I get responses to everyone.  I appreciate your understanding. Have a good week. Thank you.
