Congratulations to the Ossining Support Staff Association and the Rondout Valley Federation of Teachers and SRPs. Both local unions were recognized for their celebrations honoring School-Related Professionals.
“We received so many entries for this year’s contest,” said NYSUT Vice President Paul Pecorale. “The creativity and planning involved show that SRPs throughout the state are valued — and made the selection very difficult.”
The two winners will receive a two-for-one admission to the Oct. 4–6, 2019 SRP Leadership Conference in Saratoga Springs, valued at more than $300.
The Ossining Support Staff Association, led by Rhonda Harrell, delivered Mylar balloon-festooned goodie baskets to eight different buildings. There were other edible treats and decorations at each location, including sidewalk chalk greetings and a thank you video from district administrators.
The Rondout Valley Federation of Teachers and SRPs, led by Sheryl Baker-Delano, created personalized “RVF SRP Essential to Education” umbrellas along with a sticker and a note to let each SRP know the union “always has you covered.”
The Onteora Teachers Association, led by Michael Via, received an honorable mention for celebrating the Onteora Non-Teaching Employees Association members with breakfast trays and student-written thank you cards delivered to SRPs in seven buildings.
