This year, SEA has 29 Building Reps and 5 Officers. Several of these folks are new to their position which is very exciting for our organization. It’s great to see so many people willing to step up and participate at this level. We thank you all in advance for your contribution and time and we’re looking forward to a very positive and productive year.
Our first executive meeting will be on September 8th at 3:30pm in E-101 (Previously known as Ed’s Room) In the meantime, we wish you all the best start to your school year. Cheers!
Welcome back! It’s hard to believe, but the start of the school year is upon us again. As we’ve done in the past, we’ll hold the SEA New Teacher Luncheon on the Tuesday before school starts. The luncheon is a great opportunity to meet other new hires and veterans in the SAU and catch up with your building representatives and build relationships all around. This year we have many new building reps in district; which is very exciting. We will share information about the Seacoast Education Association, our history, our commitment to our employees, and the benefits of being a member. Good food, new friends, and important information – a great way to start your career in SAU #21 or SAU #90. All are encouraged to attend as it’ll be a fun gathering and will be fairly short so the new teachers can get back to their buildings after lunch.
Directions will be available in your buildings.
SEA is collecting books for a summer reading book drive. We are looking for books to distribute to all 1st and 5th graders. There is a box in the Teacher Resource Center, please fill it up. Click here to get an idea of what to look for based on recommended summer reading lists from the Hampton Library.
Ballots have been distributed, but there has been some confusion about the deadline for voting. The form says Thursday, but due to a few unforeseen delays in getting the ballots out, we are accepting the ballots until 11:00am on Friday. Sorry for the mix-up and thank you to everyone involved.
There will be a General Assembly Meeting on Thursday 4/17 3:30 @ WHS. At this meeting we will vote on the proposed leadership model that includes Co-Vice Presidents to represent SAUs 90 and 21. All SEA members are invited to attend and vote regarding this matter. Thanks for all your work and support.
SEA Executive Board elections will be held April 28th to 30th. We will be voting on the following positions: President, Vice President (or co-vice presidents for SAU 90 and 21, pending the General Assembly vote on Thursday 4/17), SEA Treasurer, and SEA Secretary. These are all two-year positions. Anyone interested in running should contact Patricia by 3PM on April 18th in order to place their name on the ballot.
Elections for Building Representatives will be held in May. Interested parties should see current building reps for information or check back here for updates.
Sick Bank Forms for SAU 21 have been added to the Contract/Docs page. As we continue to make our documents available online, please let us know if there’s anything you’d like access to. Thank you for the valuable feedback thus far.
After some confusion with the numbers over night, the SAU just confirmed the results! Despite one or two setbacks, the elections yielded a fantastic outcome. We’d like to send a heartfelt thank you to the communities for supporting our students, schools and staff! This could not have happened without you and the efforts of so many committed individuals who worked so hard. Thank you all so much! Congratulations to the winners! Best of luck.
