In an effort to share the pride we all feel in our school district because of the great work our teachers and students do every day, the CSTA worked to develop a commercial to air on channels 3 and 9 during the spring of 2015. Many thanks go out to the union officers who helped develop the concept, the parents who drove to the TV station during some of the worst driving conditions of February and the children who shared their talents on film and in pictures! We are hoping local businesses will find value in promoting our community and be interested in helping us fund the commercial for a longer viewing time.
As a follow-up the local television talk show Bridge Street invited us on to do a segment about our latest Character Education award. Recently we were recognized nationally as a State School District of Character, one of only 46 schools countrywide. Nicole Heath, Jaime Ballard and adorable student Nina Fico made us all proud as they represented us on the show.
We were also able to promote the Oswego County Public Education Advocacy Night on March 23rd at the Fulton Junior High from 6:30 – 7:30pm. We need to pack this forum!
Our union decided to create a Disaster Relief Fund for members of the Central Square School District community. We have a form that any CSTA member can fill out requesting funds that we wanted to make available on the website. Please click here to access the CSTA Disaster Relief Fund form.
Take Action with NYSUT's MAC
CSTA Members,We are all aware of the fight for confidentiality for our evaluations. I urge you to go to https://mac.nysut.org and join NYSUT's Member Action Center from your home computer. Send your fax to your legislators and the governor that your personal evaluation needs to be kept personal, and don't do it once, do it twice every day. Share the information and site with your family and friends and ask them to send their faxes. "Like" the MAC site and add them to your Facebook page. Take action, remind your colleagues and push back.
