Quarterly Newsletter

AVUTA PRESIDENT’S QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER - 2nd QTR                                                   OCT 2017

I wanted to put out a short newsletter to fill unit members in on a few items, here at the halfway point of the semester.  I hope everyone had a restful fall break.

AVUTA Meet and Greet - is this Thursday 19 OCT 2017 at the Apple Valley Country Club on HWY 18 by the Walmart. AVUTA has put out several flyers with the relevant information. Bottom line, while this event is best for new teachers, EVERYONE is welcome. You will have a chance to meet the Exec Board, Rep Council, and Committee members.  There will also be insurance reps available. New teachers did you know that if you are in your first 180 days of teaching you can sign up for “The Standard” disability insurance without a physical?  There will be several raffles as well as several buffet style foods and drink. The time is 4:30 PM- 6:30 PM. You don’t have to stay the whole time. We designed it that way, so you can swing in and stay as long or as short as you want. You can RSVP to the Organizing Chair Holly Blagg, or me.  

Veteran’s Day – is 11 November 2017, our next holiday, but Veteran’s Day will be celebrated on FRI 10 NOV 2017.  AVUTA salutes all veterans for the service they have given to our country. Olive Garden Buffalo Wild Wings, Applebee’s and Red Robin’s offer free meals to veterans on Veteran’s Day, and Knott’s Berry Farm gives free admission to all veterans and one guest, throughout the month of NOV. Check with these various establishments to get the details. If you know one of our AVUTA members that is a veteran. Thank them.

The AVUTA office - is now located at the D.O in building P-68. It is now located about 200 feet North of Conference Room A in the front parking lot, our building has a Red “AVUTA OFFICE” sign up on the roof.   You can’t miss it.

President’s Calendar- I am posting my calendar on the AVUTA website. Each month you will be able to see where your president was for the previous month. I have already posted – June, July, August, and September calendars.

That’s it for now. You are up to speed.  Remember: Thanksgiving Break is just 5 weeks away. Thanks for all you do.
