Dear SHAPE Colorado Members,

On behalf of SHAPE Colorado, I am would like to welcome you to the 2019 Annual Convention. This is the 88th time we have come together to share ideas. Here, we can thrive in our profession by learning new ways to benefit our kids, our profession, and our state. We offer quality sessions, workshops, and demonstrations to enrich how you teach Health and Physical Education in Colorado.

The SHAPE Colorado Board has worked extensively to assure your convention experience is a success. Board members will be here as attendees, facilitators and presenters. If you see one of us, please take a moment to say, “Hello!”. You can find us in red board member shirts. We would love to meet you or reconnect with you and hear about your convention experiences.

Emily Graves, SHAPE Colorado President
