FCEA would like to join the board in expressing our sadness as we all mourn the loss of Michelle MacDonald(Russell Ranch) who passed away this week. We join the board in extending our thoughts and prayers to her husband Aaron MacDonald (FMS), students, colleagues, FCUSD/FCEA family and the community as we mourn the loss of Michelle.
Thank you to the members who did indeed create standing room only in their red shirts Thursday. At the 1:15 Jacob L (CHS) described challenges of our jobs and the need for respect in light of all you do. At 1:35 you can see President Sansenbach's speech which started with a Shakespearian quote and ended with her hope for a better (more respectful) offer when we meet to bargain next week.
