Positive changes continue to come for all of us in YCEA, and this is thanks to all of your hard work and dedication to our profession. In the last few months we have come together and accomplished a massive support effort for our colleagues at Valley Elementary (see photos on right). Every school site wrote positive messages of support and appreciation, and you all provided cookies, cakes, coffee and candy. This is not just symbolic support. All YCEA members know that they are not alone and that we care about each other.

    Any time we know of difficulties or hardships being faced by our YCEA colleagues, I am proud of how we band together in support. I sincerely thank you all.

    Our efforts are not yet done. YCEA is also sponsoring a Parent Volunteer Night at Valley next month. I am excited about increasing the level of parent interaction at that school.

    At Calimesa we are acting in strong support of improving student behaviors and creating a school-wide plan. It started with formal complaints filed by CES staff, a YCEA memo outlining violations of Board Policy and Article 7: Safety Conditions, and it will continue with school-wide discussions and meetings with the District. The staff at CES will create their plan, and YCEA will support them at every step.


Anytime, anywhere that you or your staff is in need of support, we in YCEA are here for you.


   Your Executive Board, Site Representatives and Negotiations Team will continue to work hard on your behalf.


   Thank you for all that you do! And thank you for being a member.


In Unity,


Christopher Brunette
