East Windsor Education Association

PRIDE/FAST in Full Swing!

The East Windsor Education Association is gearing up for another successful year of Fabulous PRIDE and FAST activities!

PRIDE is an NJEA sponsored program who’s purpose is making positive connections through sponsorships of community events. We want everyone to see that EWEA members care about kids AND our community.

PRIDE money is NEVER goes towards anything or anyone political…we use your voluntary PAC donations for that 🙂

FAST money is for specific groups. In our district, PRIDE funds focus on the families of our bilingual students. Our events introduce the families to the “workings” of the school in their native language. We have found that families who are comfortable in the school are more likely to work with the schools to help their children.

The FAST grant will be submitted soon, and it will again be a way for the families of our ELL students to be a larger part of the schools.

Our chairs, Esmeralda Garcia & Angela Castaneda, just received confirmation that our PRIDE grant, for almost $20,000, was approved by NJEA! Be ready to help and be part of these events. PRIDE is EWEA and EWEA is YOU!

Your dues to NJEA is what funds PRIDE/FAST events, so we thank of all you.
