Good morning County! Happy Monday.
To start off with I hope you had a chance to enjoy your treats form us on Friday! Every school was sent a gift card from Sobey’s, so I hope you were able to find some time to have a small break from your hectic day and enjoy a small sweet or some such from us. The gift cards were mailed out last week, so if your school did not receive one, please let me know!
Last week, we also received some important dates from our Insurance Trustee. I want to remind you that the date to enroll in the NSTU dental plan is October 15th, and the deadline to apply for the Mental Health and Wellness grant is October 30th. More information can be found on the NSTU website. As well, don’t forget about sharing your personal “Teacher wellness hack” with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I also want to remind you that we have a provincial executive election on the near horizon. This time around, two candidates, Drew Fournier and Duncan Cameron have put their names forward. Both candidates will be presented to the local at our meeting on October 16th. All members are invited to attend.
And speaking of that meeting, we are quite excited to be offering a special incentive to get members out that particular evening. For the October 16th meeting, we will be sponsoring a special “Each one, reach one” event. If you want to attend the meeting, simply approach your school rep and ask if they will sponsor you to attend. If you are chosen, not only will you be treated to an awesome supper, but you will have your mileage and any child/ pet care costs reimbursed.
Please note, this option will only be limited to one member per school, so if you ever wanted to see what a local meeting looks like, this is the perfect opportunity. Come and join us on the 16th!
That’s it for today County! Have a great week!
