Hello B-Wing teachers,
I hate being the guy to go around and ask for money (really hate it), so I’m going to do it this way–via email. Please find the white envelope labeled, “SCF Teacher Scholarship” in my box. When you can, drop $20 in it and sign your name.
I know . . .what the hell!? Right? Here’s the deal:
For years, we (SCF Teachers–all of us) have provided two $500 dollar scholarships. This is NOT a union thing. This is a teacher thing. In the past we have raised money for this by having chili feeds and working other such pain-in-the-butt-fundraisers. Eventually (collectively) we decided it was just easier to each donate $20 instead of going through all the hassle. The nice thing was that we could have this money taken right out of our checks using our union as a vehicle.
Obviously we can’t do that anymore. We have to collect it the old fashion way. Grovel for it. I’ve been assigned to harass the B-Wing teachers. So that’s the story.
I’m not going to do the face to face thing with my hand out (as I said, I hate that). Plus I’m sore about all the $$ we are already giving for all sorts of other things yadda yadda yadda–yes, I’m a greedy bastard. Also, I’m a coward. So instead, I’m just going to send you regular email reminders. This is the first one.
So, (ahem) if you please–you will find a white envelope labeled, “SCF Teacher Scholarship” in my box. When you can, please drop $20 in it and sign your name.

P.S. Jen, if you’ve already been hit up at the elementary school, you’re free to just tell me to piss off.
