Tomorrow after school you have a chance to chat with current and incoming school board members at 3:30! This is your chance to let your concerns be known and to thank them for their support. So far, I only have 5 RSVPs – with over 70 teachers it would be great if more of you could stop by! With negotiations at a tense point, it is imperative that teachers show their support for our negotiations team!
Afterwards, we are heading to the board meeting.
Please let me know ASAP if you can go!
We are meeting, eating and greeting at:
PIZZA PLACE CALIFORNIA 303 S. Mission Drive San Gabriel, CA 91776
Also, please don’t forget to send me your pictures for our negotiations video

Please email your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP! Must have by Friday, 11/13.
RSVP required by Friday, 11/06.
