This Valentine's Day, share some LOVE in the classroom...and beyond!

A Strong Start for America’s Children is a national initiative inspired by President Obama’s commitment to early education.  This Valentine’s Day, encourage your legislators to support a strong start for America’s Children by sending them this valentine card.  Personalize the card if you’d like with kid’s drawings, photos, your own message or messages from parents… and don’t forget to add your signature, plus printed name and address.  If you don’t know who your legislators are, find both state and federal legislators here by providing your zip code.

For your calendar:
Thursday, February 27th – Advocate & Lobby for Kids Day sponsored by Wisconsin Council for Children & Families

Saturday, March 8th – The Registry Celebration of Graduates & Credential Awardees

Sunday-Saturday, April 6th-12th - Week of the Young Child. NAEYC offers some resources to help you plan your celebrations.


WECA Membership

WECA recently welcomed 118 new members – scholarship recipients who completed their first contract on T.E.A.C.H. and received a one-year complimentary membership.  But don’t stop after one year!  We encourage EVERY early childhood professional to be part of our professional association.  If your membership has lapsed, renew today.  If you recently received a T.E.A.C.H. bonus, why not put some of it to excellent use with a WECA membership!


From Your Counselor

Remember, April 15 is the deadline for applying for Federal Financial Aid if you are on an Associate Degree or Bachelor’s Degree scholarship.  Call your counselor if you have questions.

What’s up with a Travel Stipend?  Some students don’t even travel… some spend way more than $75 in travel… some spend way less.  To alleviate confusion, please consider this $75 as simply a benefit to help offset your expenses.  Most scholarship recipients never see this stipend because when they are billed for their share of scholarship costs, the travel stipend is automatically applied to expenses.

What will you do with your free WECA membership?
