Admission ticket and refreshments will be provided by the sponsors.

Ways to improve communication and disseminate information to the PMCT membership were discussed and plans were developed. Building Representative Jennifer Hempfling attended building representative trainings where contract items and the Freidrich’s case were discussed. The group was validated by NYSUT leadership in regards to all that we do and is excited to begin implementing new ideas!

A large group of parents, teachers, administrators and local Assemblyman, Dean Murray, held a rally to protest the Common Core curriculum and the high stakes teacher evaluations imposed on public schools by Governor Cuomo in the last legislative session. These rallies were held simultaneously in 17 communities across Long Island on Thursday September 17, 2015. Rallies and forums like this will continue as the parents in New York State love their schools and will fight for local control of their children’s education.
Please put Thursday September 17th at 4pm on your calendars to Paint Our Community Red for Public Ed! This event will be at the corner of South Ocean Avenue, North Ocean Avenue and Main Street. Please come wearing red with signs and banner!
On Saturday July 11, 2015 PMCT Executive Board members attended an anti Cuomo rally in the Hamptons. The target of the picket was a $5,000-a-person East Hampton event in honor of the governor hosted by Daniel Loeb, a top hedge-fund manager based in New York City. Mr. Loeb is also a political fundraiser who, like Mr. Cuomo, has sparred with teachers unions and championed charter schools.
