Hi Rosalind,

My name is Mike Smith and I'm the School Programs Manager for HASTE.  I received your contact information from Omar Bhimji (HASTE project manager - currently on leave) as someone to touch base with regarding a couple of teacher workshops we have organized in February.

The workshops are in Vancouver and Burnaby and are open to anyone from any district who are interested in bringing active and sustainable transportation issues into their classroom or school.

Attached is an announcement for the workshops.  If you're able to advertise this at the district and to anyone you might think would be interested, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again and let me know if you need any further information.
