MCEA welcomes back district employees

Summer vacation is winding down for students and teachers, and there’s a lot to do to get ready.

On Thursday, Moffat County School District teachers new and old, as well as all other employees, will have the chance to prepare for the first day of school at the Employees’ Benefit Fair, from 1 to 4 p.m. in the Moffat County High School commons area.

The fair, sponsored by the Moffat County Education Association and the school district, is intended to support district employees by providing learning sessions about benefits and staff development opportunities.

The district employs more than 300 people in the community.

Local businesses will have vendor booths set up in the commons area so employees can learn about investment firms and insurance opportunities.

Participants can browse through vendors or attend learning sessions about the Public Employees Retirement Association.

“We think it’s important for them to hear information before the school year starts,” MCEA co-president Michele Conroy said. “When school starts, the focus is on kids and providing the best programming for the students. We want to have a casual come-and-go event where teachers and employees can get the information they need.”

After the fair, all district employees are invited to a welcome back social at 4:30 p.m. at the Holiday Inn, where prizes will be given away and teachers will have the chance to socialize before the school year begins, Conroy said.
