Sisters and Brothers,

As another year ends and a new one is here, take some time to reflect on the loves and passions you have. Appreciate art. Listen to music you have not yet heard. Enjoy new foods. Take time to breathe.

A new year of legislation is also on the rise, and once again, we must pay close attention to what others think is best in education. We have elected many educators across the state, and we have hope that they will stand up for public education and be strong in the face of adversity.

Please remember to give special thanks to your building representatives, who work very hard for you. They are the ones making sure that the contract is upheld, that the process is protected, and that everyone gets the representation they need. It is not an easy job, but they are committed to make sure you are represented well.

In Solidarity,
