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.
Our chairs, Esmeralda Garcia & Angela Castaneda, have already received confirmation that our PRIDE/FAST grants, for almost $30,000, 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.
