Welcome back to another fun year at FCPS!
We here at FEA are gearing up for 2015-16 to be one of our best years yet. We had an active summer of planning and training, organizing upcoming events, interviewing and educating current and potential elected officials, recruiting new members, redesigning our website, and even kicking around the idea of an FEA book mobile.
We are looking forward to our first Rep Assembly meeting on September 16th at 4:45 pm at the Sherwood Community Center.
Remember, all members are welcome. If your building does not have a rep, please consider stepping up to help.
Also, we are hosting a “Put Kids First” event on September 18th where you can join us for food and fun at our office at 3917 Old Lee Hwy.
We will be joined by leaders of the statewide Virginia Education Association as well as several elected officials who are known for standing up for education. Come meet your new coworkers from around the district, and bring the whole family. We will have activities for children, including a bounce castle right outside our hospitality tent.
Save the date to join us on October 3rd for a crash course on having a successful evaluation.
As veteran educators know, the key to a great evaluation is to start early. Knowing how to document and showcase your skills is essential to having a positive evaluation. Even if you have worked in education before, know that FCPS has a unique evaluation system. RSVP to Mmacotto@fairfaxea.org if you plan to attend. Free for members, $20 for non-members.
With the budget battles facing FCPS this year, we will be asking our members to step up more than ever.
There is a lot to be done, but we know that if we all work together we are stronger, and we are confident that we can make this year the best the year yet at both FEA and FCPS.
We are happy to have you back!
