Though I am aware that there are mixed feelings regarding the ratification of a new 6-year contract between the BC government and the BCTF, I for one, am ecstatic that our teachers and our kids are back in their classrooms!
I deeply appreciate and am proud of our teachers who took a stand to make our school a better place for our kids to learn. We all know that teachers spend untold amounts of their own money decorating and stocking their classrooms for our kids, and in light of their loss of pay throughout the lengthy labour dispute, I would like to help them in some way. In talking with other parents over the summer break, I know that there are many others who feel the same way.
How can we say thank you? We can provide the teachers with a little extra money to spend in their classrooms this year.
