Many parents have asked the PTO what the status is of the contract negotiations with the teachers and the city. Please find below some information
As part of their contract negotiation campaign, Newton Teachers are taking additional action. On November 5th Bigelow teacher’s stood out in front of the school to let the community know they are working without a contract. According to the Newton Teachers Association:
- Beginning in November, teachers will discontinue participating in voluntary committees.
- Beginning in December, teachers will remain silent during department and citywide meetings. They will continue to remain silent during full faculty meetings.
“We will not work in the normal ways we work, we will not go above and beyond, and, most importantly, we will not contribute to the district’s ability to advance its initiatives until negotiations are completed. Our goal, in escalating from full faculty meetings, to departmental and voluntary meetings, to, eventually, professional development, is to prevent the district from moving forward initiatives–to bring these to a grinding halt.” (Mike Zilles, NTA President)
Come join the fun and be a part of planning Bigelow’s biggest night of the year!
Hosted by Alexis Giannakopoulos and Cheryl Abramson on December 4th at 7:00pm.
Big Night is the Bigelow PTO’s biggest social and fundraising event of the year. It’s a night where the Bigelow (adult) community gets together to enjoy live music, nice food and drinks, bid on wonderful auction items, meet and catch up with other Bigelow parents and staff. More here.
Thank you all for making Bigelow TEN Tables the best ever!!!!!! 116 people were involved with cooking, hosting & eating their way through Newton! This could only happen with the generosity of hosts who donated all of their time, food & drinks.
We raised over $6000 which will benefit our kids.
Special thanks to Alessandra Di Bacco & Tomasz Grzegorczyk and Shana & Dan Smythe who started the night off with a dazzling array of appetizers and cheer.
