Celebrating SLPs!!!

Last Thursday was Speech Language Pathologist Day. While we celebrated it on our social media platforms, I neglected to include it in last week's Monday Morning Message. I include it today to celebrate and express my sincerest apologies to our Speech Language Pathologists who do so much for so many of our students.

Vacancies on the Board of Directors

The following positions are vacant on the Board of Directors. Vacancies are either a one or two year term (see date next to each position for when the term expires). The Board of Directors meetings monthly to discuss Union related issues, actions, and other business as needed. Board members also help disseminate information from the Union Office, meet with administration for questions about contracts, and assist members with questions, concerns and when meeting with administration. Members of the Board Directors are supported by the Grievance Chairs and the Executive Board. If you have any questions, or are interested in one of the vacant positions, please contact Adam (president@nashuatu.org).

No surprise...Saturday closely followed by Sunday. The worst day of the week...drumroll...ok, yes it's Monday. Of course it's Monday. Tuesday was a close second!

Just for Fun

Last week, the guys on the radio station I listen to were talking about cooling off from being hot or warming up from being cold. This leads to this week's question.
