We hope you had a relaxed and recharged winter break where you enjoyed time outdoors and connected with loved ones.  

There’s something about a new year, that makes you feel like new things are possible! We make resolutions and plans to build healthy habits, we resolve to be more organized, start fresh with new units to get our students excited about learning, and so on. Conversely, there may also be a sense of starting over, like a September start-up, we need to get back into our routines, reconnect with our co-workers, students, and families. 

Our hope and promise to you is to remember that collectively nothing is impossible. Whatever you are feeling, you are not alone – you are a part of the STA and we value and appreciate YOU! 

If you have questions or concerns, please remember you have various ways to receive support: 

  1. Talk to the Staff Rep(s) at your school, 
  1. Bring your questions to your school Health and Safety Committee,  
  1. Add your school issue to the agenda for your next Staff Committee meeting,  
  1. Email or call your elected Full Time Table Officers (FTTOs) who are here to assist you.  
  1. Access the Employee Family Assistance Plan (EFAP) or the BCTF Health & Wellness Program  

Together, we are the STA. Let’s have an exciting 2023!
