Welcome Back – A Letter from the President

I hope you all have had a restful and relaxing summer!  It’s hard to believe it’s gone by so quickly!  This year will be a busy one for the STA.  We will be working with a new superintendent and negotiating 4 new contracts: teachers, paraprofessionals, secretaries and cafeteria workers.  Your input prior to negotiations will be crucial to our negotiation (P R & R) team.  We have a link on our STA website to provide such input, but you will also be receiving a survey electronically prior to the winter break.

You can find a list of our STA leadership as well as meeting dates on our web site: http://Stoneham.Massteacher.org.

Should you need to contact me, the best way to reach me is to email me at stoneham.teachers.president@gmail.com or to call me at Robin Hood School 781-279-3870 extension 211 and leave a voicemail message.

I am looking forward to welcoming you all back to school on Monday, August 28th at 11am, where I will introduce our officers, building reps and negotiating team to you.

Enjoy your remaining days of vacation!

Sincerely,

Donna M. Lazar
President
