    ERTA's Holiday Wrap & Snack was a big success.  Schools donated enough toys to keep our wrappers busy for hours, enjoying the activity, the refreshments and the company.  Best of all it resulted in many dozens of toys and gifts that will be distributed by our family resouce centers to students in our community to make the holiday even brighter.

    On Sunday October 20th, our ERTA for a CURE team participated in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk at Woodbury Commons. It was a great day: a great walk, a great cause, and a great day for solidarity in fighting this disease. 

    Individual schools fund raised this year with events such as pink dress down days and I’m so happy to report the results are through the roof!  This year, thanks to the generosity of ERTA member, we are donating $5,035 to the American Cancer Society. That is our highest total yet!!!

    Thank you to every ERTA member who dressed down, donated or walked for this very worthy cause! 

    Hope you’ll walk with us in 2020!!

    Welcome back as we begin the 2019-20 school year.  I hope the summer was restful, enjoyable, and provided renewed energy for the upcoming school year. 

    This year, as we now do, we will send the opening year informational packet to you electronically at your home e-mail address.   If you have any questions as to the information in the packet, you should speak with your Building Representatives.

    The cabinet has been working all summer to put the Contract document together, get it to the printer, and have it ready for the start of school.  Contracts will be distributed to you as ERTA Officers and Cabinet members visit your building.

    All that ERTA has achieved over its long history is directly credited to unity and strength of membership.  Your continued support as we move forward is necessary and appreciated by all its members.  We will continue to keep you informed as to ERTA business through e-mail and ERTA’s website.   Additionally, we welcome you to attend the monthly Representative Council meetings.   

    Best wishes for a successful school year.

    In Solidarity,

    Alan Tesher,
    President ERTA
