The Holiday Issue

Barnes & Noble Fundraiser

Thank you to everyone that joined us this winter at our Barnes & Noble Fundraiser. We raised over $400 and were able to donate to the Children's Fund as well as have enough funds to help send Cynthia Rasavage (Grace Jordan) to the NEA ESP Conference in Dallas, TX this summer.

Foodbank Volunteer Day

We had an amazing turnout at the Foodbank, where members sorted over 3,000 lbs of food and made over 70 boxes of emergency food rations for families.

ESP Sparks

New this year is an amazing opportunity for new ESP members to attend a Boise Education Association Sparks retreat for our classified members. This all-inclusive retreat will be held on May 5 and 6 and will include networking and amazing experiences for members.

Game Night!

Make sure to save the date for the ESP Committee's Game Night on Wednesday, April 26th. We'll be hosting a fun night for members and non-members to enjoy games and food at the IEA building. We'll have more information available soon.
