President's Message
President's Payday Reminder 9/23/2015:

Dear Members:

Attached are several important Health Care documents from our Health Care Chair, Mindy Rottmund.  Of special import are the Urgent Care facilities lists for various PA counties.  You may want to consider taking a photo of these documents so that you have them on your phone for emergencies.

I do have the new distribution list for new members; however, I have not been able to update all my building e-mail groups, so I ask you one more time, if there is a new member in your building, please forward today's payday reminder to them.  If you are a mentor, please forward this to the teacher you are mentoring.

GIEP Forms:  Please be mindful to return GIEP forms to the Gifted Education teachers within one week from when they send them to you.  In order for us to remain in compliance with laws governing students' Gifted Individual Education Programs, these teachers need that information in a timely manner.  Thank you for your help with this matter!

PM CARES Service Project:  Don't forget that we have a Dress Down Day on Friday, October 2.

Sick Bank Final Reminder:  If you do not belong to the Sick Bank and would like to join, please contact Donna Brady.  The deadline for joining is September 30.

Social Reminder: Now that we are all back in the swing of things (hopefully!), we all deserve some fun!  Join us at the PMEA fall social on Friday, October 23rd at Jodie Henderson's immediately following in-service.  Conveniently located in Millersville at 129 Kready Ave, Jodie's establishment will include a fine meal of pulled pork sandwiches, a variety of sides, and adult beverages.  We are asking members and guests to contribute $5 to cover the cost.  Jen Kroesen will be sending out a sign-up in advance to determine how much to prepare, but you may still come without prior registration.  There is a home football game that evening if anyone would like to plan to attend as a group.  We hope you can join us for this festive event!

PMEA Website:  Erick Dutchess will be posting items on the "Buy and Sell" section of our website (  Please send him an e-mail at  Don't forget that you can access our current contract and health care documents on our site.

October Representative Council Meeting:  The first meeting of the year is scheduled for today, Thursday, October 15 at 4:00 p.m. in the faculty room at Manor Middle School.  All members are welcome to attend.
