Weekly update: check your checks

“We get paid for this?”
Happy first payday! Although your paycheck is probably already spent, you may have noticed that it is a little higher than expected.  This first paycheck did not include deductions for health, dental, vision, life, or disability insurances.  Those will begin in the next paycheck and will be deducted over the remaining 20 pay periods.  Shoot me an email or see your building rep if you have any questions.
Congrats to Walberta staff for another successful Meet the Teacher Night last night and good luck to Cherry Road as they present to parents tonight. Remember, you make a difference every day in the lives of our students and their families. Thank you.
Please head over to our website and join our Making Strides team for the Oct 16th Making Strides for Breast Cancer event at OCC SRC Arena.  Our team and fundraising hasn’t quite kicked into gear yet, we need you to get on board and help us reach our goal of raising $2500 for breast cancer research. Won’t you please help? It’s easy and only takes a moment. Please visit www.wdea3115.org today.  If online giving isn’t your cup of tea, you can make cash donations by feeding the “Coins for Cancer” jars located in each school, wear Jeans for a Cause on Sept. 23 and make a donation to our team, or by donating directly to one of our team members through the ACS mobile app. So if you see one of us coming with cellphone in hand, we’re not playing Pokemon Go, we’re out to collect your donation.  Watch out!
We’ve updated our webpage to include our google calendar including upcoming meetings and special events.  https://wdea3115.wordpress.com/calendar/
On Tuesday, Sept. 20, you’re invited to wear your favorite college gear for our first monthly College Pride Day. Take pride in your alma mater and share your college experience with colleagues and students – it’s a great conversation starter with kids (“My mom went to Potsdam!”). Each month we’ll collect a $2 donation ($20 for the year) to help fund our WDEA scholarship. So please wear your college gear on Tuesday and send selfie or group shots to wdea3115@gmail.com so we can post them on our web page.  Together we can inspire the next generation of teachers.
In solidarity,
