BTA NEWS--most importantly: thank you for all you do & enjoy the summer!
BTA ANNUAL MEETING: Thank you to all who attended the BTA Annual Meeting on June 6. It was great to see so many non-Board members there. If you missed the meeting and would like a copy of the officers' yearly reports, please see a building rep or contact BTA leadership.

SCHOLARSHIPS: Congrats to the 14 recipients of the BTA Son/Daughter Scholarship this year. We awarded $8,500 worth of aid to our members' children from all over the Cape. Thank you to the committee for their hard work--with 20+ applicants, the selection process was certainly not easy.

CITIZENSHIP AWARDS: Congrats to the third, fifth and seventh graders across the district who have been selected by their teachers for the annual BTA Citizenship Awards. We had over 50 recipients this year who have consistently demonstrated "cooperation, courtesy, industry, loyalty, judgment, reliability, self-control, and truthfulness."

CLIMATE QUESTIONNAIRE: Please complete the brief questionnaire delivered this week by the end of the school year in order to help the BTA better serve and understand your needs.

NEGOTIATIONS: As mentioned in last month's negotiation update and at Annual Meeting, we have made substantial progress and tentative agreements have been reached, but there is still more work to be done in order to bring forth full tentative agreements for all three of our bargaining units that are the best possible for our members.  Since the last update, we had another bargaining session with the School Committee on June 12 and have meetings scheduled throughout the summer break to continue this extremely important work. Please, as always, contact your bargaining team representative and BTA leadership if you would like further information and they/we will give you what is available. Thank you for your patience.
