Hi everyone,

A few people have asked for the order form for faculty attire. It is in the link below, you can order anytime and then send the check and order form directly to NewTek Design.


We have had multiple discussions with Sara about the parking lot. We are waiting for the students passes to be straightened out and our hopes are we will get some spaces back.

We have an e-board meeting Tuesday Sept. 25th in Aimee’s room. if you want to address the e-board on an issue please come right after school.

We will be planning an ARTA meeting for some time in October as our first meeting was squashed due to the weather and central office planning.

End of year party, any takers to host?

Hi everyone,

With no retirement party this year we were wondering if anyone would be interested in hosting the end of the year party.  On any day of your choosing. Becca has graciously hosted for years and it is time to pass the baton.  It doesn’t have to be local to Northboro or Southboro but that seems to be what has worked best in the past in getting the most staff to attend.

ARTA will happily buy the food and other necessities we just need a person happy to host.

Let Aimee or Gina know if you are interested.


President's Message

Back to school

Good morning ARTA!

Thank you for responding to the two surveys we sent out. The first one was in June collecting feedback on duties and the second was in July asking about whether ISS should continue as a duty.

We sat with Sara in July to discuss the findings and should see some changes this coming year thanks to your input!

Our first ARTA meeting will be on Tuesday August 28th at 12:45 in the Cafeteria with an Ice Cream Social. This meeting is prior to the Superintendent’s welcome back address. (This is a change from past years)

If someone from MTA hasn’t stopped by your house by now you will probably see them in the next few weeks. They are just checking in to say hi and see how your year went and to update you on the Supreme Court decision regarding Agency Fee payers.

We believe ARTA is a strong association with dedicated members who care about the power of our contract. We will continue to work together to benefit all members, past, present and future!

Let’s do this!
