Retired Educators group meets Nov. 12

The Coweta Association of Retired Educators meets Nov. 12 at 11 a.m. at the Coweta County School System instructional offices building at 167 Werz Industrial Drive.

A special treat will be a performance with the Swingin’ Singin’ Seniors. The group will be doing a variety of music, including a little Christmas music. This is the 25th anniversary for the group, said CARE President Hattie Dunn.

The second part of the meeting will be a presentation by Dean Jackson, spokesman for the Coweta County School System. Members of CARE have been asked to participate in a focus group being conducted by the school system, Dunn said.

The focus group will gather experienced educators’ opinions about the direction of the school system to help develop the Coweta County School System’s 2014-2019 Strategic Plan.

The system’s current strategic plan can be found on the school system’s website at wwwcowetaschools.org .

Refreshments will be served.
