      Twenty four new teachers were welcomed to the school district in a joint effort between the Wappingers Congress of Teachers (WCT) and the Wappingers Central School District (WCSD). This year, in the spirit of collaboration, the teachers spent the morning at central office before being chauffeured by yellow school bus to the WCT office where, President Pasquale Delli Carpini gave them a warm welcome. There, they were treated to lunch by the WCT and they also received information pertinent to new teachers. The other WCT hosts were Ronnie Dwyer, administrative assistant, Flip Gertler (VP Elementary), Jim Marrinan (VP Political Action), Kerri Roger (Building Representative) and Diane DiChiara (Secondary-at-Large).  Superintendent Jose Carrion, Assistant Superintendent for Human Resources and Labor Relations, Dr. Dwight Bonk and Executive Director of Special Education and Student Support Services, Richard Zipp joined the new teachers at the WCT office to show their support for their future success.

      President's Message

      THANK YOU!

      Dear Members,

      Once again, I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you and appreciation for another  great display of solidarity and courage in defense of education! I'm deeply indebted to my Executive Board for working tirelessly to organize another very successful rally.  The support from the community, parents and other locals sent a clear message to Governor Cuomo and the elected officials.  Enjoy a well deserved weekend!

      In Solidarity,

      Pasquale Delli Carpini
