Good morning, SEA!
It’s exciting to see various ways in which our schools are honoring Black History Month which kicks off tomorrow, February 1. Be sure to check out the Learning for Justice website for lessons and activities that can be used not just in February, but year-round in your classrooms. I’ve highlighted an article in this week’s Monday Message from the LFJ website. This week you will also find registration for Region 35’s Beyond Chequity Discussion on Wednesday, February 23, which focuses on how to respond to challenging conversations with students, colleagues, or administrators centering on equity.
Here are some other helpful links and information highlighted in the 1/31 Edition of the Monday Message:
- NEA Member Benefits and the “Sanvello” app
- The Whole Child Task Force needs your input
- Link to sign-up for the Transfer Fair
Just a reminder February 1 is contractually the last day to notify district of your participation in the Transfer Fair, as well as any type of leave for 2022-2023 which includes parental leave, general leave of absence, or a job sharing leave. See Appendix F & G in our SEA contract for the forms to submit.
