|A Message from Andrew Pallotta, NYSUT President|
Here we go again. The charter school industry is pushing to increase the number of charter schools in New York – without requiring any reforms or transparency. This is bad news for New York students.
List below are three dates you will want to add to your social calendars. Additional information about the events will be posted as it becomes available.
- June 3, NYSUT Retiree Council 23 Luncheon — R-UTN member Teddy Emmanuel is to be honored for receiving the NYSUT Community Service Award for her work with Child Abuse Prevention Services, or CAPS.
- June 14, United Teachers of Northport Retirement Party at the Harbor View.
- September 10, R-UTN Annual Picnic at the Vanderbilt Museum in Centerport.
Out of concern for the extra strain on community support resources caused by the current Federal shutdown, the Executive Board voted to make the following $1,000 donations: in memory of Bill Hall (volunteer) to the Family Services Leagues HIHI program providing shelter and other services to the home less; Ecumenical Lay Council Food Pantry and the Homeless Vets organization. In addition a donation to support UTN President Stacey Weisberg’s participation in the Purple Project run raising funds for pancreatic cancer – she is running in memory of our late colleague, Linda Goodman.
