      Dear Wappingers Community, Over the last few years, a growing movement has taken place across New York State.

      On Thursday, August 18th, in collaboration with the WCSD, the Wappingers Congress of Teachers welcomed approximately 30 new teachers to our ranks. More than half of the new teachers are Wappingers graduates! After spending the morning at Central Office, the teachers took a yellow school bus over to their new union office where they were served a hearty lunch. Several were joined by their mentors. Tad Herman signed them up as members. They then learned about all the union benefits they now have from the Welfare Trust Fund from Flip Gertler, VP Elementary. Jim Marinnan guided them through  enrollment in Vote Cope and they were shown the WCT web page and how to log on to access forms and other pertinent information by Diane DiChiara. Kerri Roger, LAP, showed them how to get their free WCT tee shirt at the online store and Kate DeGroat explained LAP and how they could volunteer. Both the Superintendent Carion and Dr. Bonk stopped by during the afternoon and along with Pasquale Delli Carpini displayed the collaboration that exists between the WCSD and the WCT. All of this was made possible through the efforts of the WCT's administrative assistant, Ronnie Dwyer. A warm welcome to our new teachers for a successful year!
