Red for EDucation and RALLY for Education Update
The SCETF Executive held an emergency executive meeting last night and two motions were approved.
The SCETF Executive has approved a motion that SCETF Members will recognize Red for EDucation Day on Thursdays as Friday has been a day to wear red in honour of the military. SCETF Members are encouraged to wear red on Fridays in honour of the military. (Please note: Holding Red for EDucation on Thursdays is a Simcoe County Elementary Teachers’ Federation decision and not an ETFO decision.)
The second motion was approved to access ETFO funding to purchase Red for EDucation t-shirts for SCETF Members. SCETF is working with SCEOT and SCDECE to order t-shirts for each local. More details on these t-shirts will be available in the next couple of days. The plan is to have the steward or cbc rep place one t-shirt order for all ETFO Members at their school and forward to the SCETF Office.
RALLY for Education on Saturday, April 6th at noon at Queen’s Park: Simcoe ETFO (SCETF, SCEOT and SCDECE) are working with our other education partners – OSSTF, OECTA and OPSEU on providing transportation to Toronto. Preliminary plans are to have bus pick-up locations in Barrie, Collingwood, Hwy 88/400, Midland and Orillia. Click this link for bus pick-up location.
