Weekly Update-February 18, 2020

Greetings NEA-Jurupa,

  

Happy Tuesday! Hopefully you had a restful Presidents’ Day Weekend. I apologize in advance for the long email and multiple attachments, we all get bombarded and really have to pick and choose what we read! Included in the attachments are resources regarding Special Education, MTSS, and JUSD’s PICO (website link) program. We will be working on getting these resources uploaded to the neaj.org website as well.

 

I wanted to take this opportunity to remind you the tomorrow is Association Day and as always we encourage you to wear #RedForEd in support of NEA-Jurupa and Public Education. Please feel free to share any pictures with us as we have a new Instagram account. You can follow us at: neajurupa. Our Member Engagement/Organizing Committee is also working on getting a new Facebook page up and running.

 

Listed below are upcoming events/opportunities (pdf files are attached to the bottom of this page)

 

Additionally, NEA-Jurupa’s Executive Board approved for members to attend the following conference: San G Social Justice and Cultural Equity on Saturday April 18th at the Mission Inn (20 members). This is an excellent opportunity to network and learn about social justice from other local leaders. Dolores Huerta will be the keynote speaker on Saturday. Please email me if you are interested in more information or in attending this awesome event!
