BMUST belongs to the Long Island Teachers’ Benevolent Fund (LITBF), which offers a yearly scholarship for up to $500 (the Len Motisi Memorial Scholarship) to high school seniors, who are going to college next year and whose parent is an active teacher in a Long Island local. Many of our members’ sons and daughters have been awarded this scholarship over the years.
The attached application must be sent back to me at the BMUST office no later than March 6, 2015 to get my signature on it and for me to send it to LITBF before the deadline of March 13, 2015. We are also putting these forms on our website,www.bmust.org. The application has a section that must be completed by your child’s Guidance Counselor. You must include the school transcript, with the GPA on it and include a copy of the SAT scores. If the transcript does not contain the GPA, your Guidance Counselor must submit a statement with the scores. So please fill the form in as soon as possible and forward it to me through inter-office mail.

We are in the process of planning our 33rd Annual Awards Dinner-Dance, where we honor teachers who will retire and other esteemed colleagues and friends in the community. The Annual Dinner has always been a memorable evening, attended by many of our teachers, administrators, parents and friends.
As part of our annual celebration, we have always had a journal, and we will have one again this year. We would very much like to include you in our memento.
A good educational system makes a community a more desirable place in which to live because of what it can offer our children. We know you will want to be a part of helping us honor our colleagues and community leaders who have furthered the cause of public education in our district. With that thought in mind, we are attaching a journal reservation. Please note the member discount prices.
If you know of any non-member who owns a business and would like to place an ad in our journal, please contact Kim Blackbmustsecretary@gmail.com to get a reservation form for them.
Proud of our own ED 17 delegate Daphna Arm!
