Cheer, Hope, Generosity!!

Refreshments, Prizes, Camaraderie
Friday, December 12
OEA Center
272 East 12th Street, Oakland
Help brighten the season for others-
Please bring a toy--new, unwrapped--for an Oakland child.


Dear OEA Reps and Alternates,
     I am counting on you to have your staff commit to support the OEA Toy Drive and the Project for Unaccompanied Minors.
     How you can make it happen:
1. Have your principal add you to the end of the agenda for your Faculty Meeting. (That is a contractual right.)
2. Print out theflyer for the Toy/Gift Card Driveand bring it to your meeting. 
3. On the back of the flyer have staff write their names and what they will give you by Friday, December 12(toy or money or gift card).
4. If you cannot bring the items on Friday or Monday 12/15, ask around for someone who can.
5. Remind those who made a commitment at Wednesday PD meeting.
6. Come and enjoy a TGIF with your colleagues on December 12!

Another announcement to make to your staff:
ALCOSTA Service Center is holding an email election for Minority-at-Large Delegate to CTA State Council. Please remind them that the email from ALCOSTA is a ballot and they should vote. Biographical statements are included. Some have gone into Spam boxes.

This is another chance to remind them to update their contact information. Direction were written on the back of the Toy Drive flyer handed out at Rep Council.

I know this is a lot to ask. I hope the directions have made it less onerous. Thank you for all that you do for the children of Oakland and the adults who support them.

In Unity,

Trish Gorham
