Today is statewide School-Related Professionals Recognition Day. You may recall that NYSUT was instrumental in getting the law passed establishing the third Tuesday of November for this special — and well-deserved — recognition.
If you haven’t already, please take some time to recognize the hard work and dedication of the support staff who, don’t just work in your school or in your district, they make everything work. The bus mechanics and drivers transport our most precious cargo safely. Secretaries and clerical staffers are on the front line, helping students and teachers navigate the many problems that arise each day. Cafeteria workers feed our children (and us)! Custodial staff keep our buildings clean and secure. Classroom aides, monitors and teaching assistants are invaluable to the teaching and learning environment. Nursing staff keep students healthy.
Thousands of these posters, developed by NYSUT, are being used this month.
For all that SRPs do each and every day, thank you!
