Mobley’s Message 11-28-2022

Good morning, SEA!

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving break and enjoyed the time off!  I will send out a new edition of the Monday Message next Monday.  Here’s the link to last week’s edition in case you didn’t have a chance to view it due to conferences. 

Be sure to share any feedback about having parent/teacher conferences in November just once this year with your building representatives so that can share that with me during a discussion at the December building rep meeting.  

Mobley’s Message 11-21-2022

Happy Conferences Day, SEA!

Can’t believe we made it to our  conferences.  Hope your meetings with families go well today and tomorrow.  It will definitely be nice to have several days off for the Thanksgiving holiday!

Here is the link to the 11/21 Edition of the Monday Message.  

Some highlight’s in this week’s edition are listed below:

  • American Education Week Recap
  • SEA/SEEO $1 Per Member Donation to the D54 Food Pantries
  • Application for funding through the IEA to attend NEA’s Leadership Summit on March 10-12

If you haven’t decided on what to each for lunch today, consider ordering pizza from Lou Malnati’s to support the D54 Education Foundation. 20% of your sales will go back to the Foundation.  Refer to the flier or use code FUNDD54S22 for online or app ordering.
