President's Message
President's Payday Reminder 10/22/2014:

Dear Members:

Thank you to everyone who participated in our PACE donation drive.  We will have the drawing for the $50 Amazon Gift Card at tomorrow's Rep Council meeting.  I will e-mail you the winner and final tally of donations collected.


Use Your Building Rep:  As this year has been one of the most challenging of our careers (with the addition of the SLO for our Teacher Evaluation, new curriculum and pacing requirements, etc.), I just wanted to remind everyone that if you have any concerns or issues related to any matter arise, please go to your building rep.  It helps us to see if it is a single-building issue or if it is a district-wide issue.

DSSD/Formal Evaluation In-Service Credit:  Please remember to use the form in the DSSD packet to record your time working on your DSSD and Formal Evaluation as in our new contract we negotiated one in-service day (6 hours) for you to complete the paperwork and activities related to your DSSD/Formal Evaluation. 

PSEA Membership Cards:  I have been informed by our Membership Chair, Karen Hallett, that our new PSEA cards should arrive to our home address in November.  When I receive mine, I will let you know to make sure you have received your card.

PMEA MAGNETS!:  If you would like to purchase more (maybe one for your classroom and one for your car, or you have two cars, etc.), please e-mail Amy Niemkiewicz.  You can purchase as many extras as you would like for a mere $2!!  

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

October Representative Council Meeting:  The next meeting is scheduled for tomorrow, Thursday, October 23 at 4:00 p.m. in the faculty room at Manor Middle School.  All members are welcome to attend.
