FCPE Campaign Now – November 1st

  • FCPE CAMPAIGN is on now.  Members who want to begin contributing to the Fund for Children and Public Education should get a contribution slip from their BR.  FCPE supports candidates and legislative issues that favor public education. Just last year we saw the potential effects of SB5/Issue 2 on our careers.   Members can contribute through payroll deduction (over 19 pays), by cash or check, or on the OEA website.  Many TAWLS members already contribute and we THANK YOU for your donation!  New contribution slips must be turned in to Julie Hogan at Jefferson by Nov. 1.  Call Julie (ext. 7634) if you have questions.

Calamity Day Prediction Game

  • TAWLS ACTIVITIES: TAWLS Activities is organizing, amongst our members, a prediction “game” involving calamity days for the 2012-2013 school year.  A BR from your building has received ballots for members to predict when they think the 1st calamity day will occur, predict the date of the first calamity delay and the number of calamity days that will be used this school year (we are optimistic this year will be better than last:) Be sure to put in your best guess “AND MAY THE ODDS BE EVER IN YOUR FAVOR.”
