This year MEA is a partner in the Stuff the Bus program, to benefit the youth in our district. If you want to help please let us know. If you know of a family that can benefit from this program please have them contact their child's teacher for an application. Please share so that we can get the word out so the holidays will filled with joy for the children!
MEA hosted their first ever paint night with Kat's Paint Parties at our own MEA office. More than 40 MEA members came together to bring out their inner Picasso while creating a fun, fall pumpkin painting. We look forward to holding more paint parties like this one in the future!
MEA Members spent the 2 days of the Manteca Sunrise Kiwanis' Pumpkin Fair in our booth talking to parents and making crafts with children. Over the course of the weekend, hundreds of headbands were created and even more prizes were won. What a fun weekend with the "little pumpkins" of our community.
MEA held our first New Member Mixer in several years to welcome the many new teachers of Manteca Unified to our ranks. MEA Executive Board members and several CTA vendors were on hand to answer questions and provide valuable information. It was a wonderful evening of fellowship, food, drinks, and getting to know our new MEA members.
MEA President Ericka Meadows and Vice President Judi Horton presenting the executive board of Yuba City Teachers Association a check for their strike fund. Our local donated $5000 to help support teachers who stood strong during the 7 day strike.
With our change in leadership, we decided to rebrand, redesign, and redo our website. Our local is proud to represent classroom teachers, counselors, nurses, program coordinators, psychologists, speech therapists, and teachers on special assignment.
That is why we have changed our URL to mantecaeducators.org.
As you can tell, we have changed our look and feel and also launched a new Facebook page. Please let us know what you think and what we can improve to meet your needs better.
