teachers’ strike. Although the Ontario Secon- dary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF/ FEESO) reported a tentative agreement, it still needs to be approved by its members before it can be put into effect. The Catholic District School Board of Eas- tern Ontario (CDSBEO) website states there are currently no plans to strike, however talks are ongoing. “We are continuing to monitor the province-wide education labour situation, and will post new developments to this loca- tion as soon as information is available. All kindergarten to grade 12 teachers at English Catholic school boards are represented by the Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Association (OECTA). - See more at: http://www.cdsbeo. on.ca/students-parents/labour-situation- updates/#sthash.i6gwGjZO.dpuf”. The Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO) has reported that they will be heading back to the bargaining table on Sep- tember 1st with additional talks scheduled for September 4, just before the long weekend and the start of the new school year.

Elementary and secondary teachers have beenwithout a collective agreement since last August.

Nonetheless, preparation for going back to school still needs to be done. It’s time for school supplies and back to school clothes. According to the Catholic District School Board of Ontario school supply list, there are a lot of supplies to consider, which can get very pricey. Pencils, pens, markers, glue, erasers, scissors, lined paper, graph paper, printer paper, binders, dividers, calculators, dictionaries, sharpeners, geometry sets, agendas, staplers and remo- vers, and so much more can run up a big tab especially if there are more than one or two children in the family. The best way to save money on all these supplies is to pick them up when they go on sale, or at the end of the season. Not that this helps much at the moment, but something to keep in mind for the next time around. With all there is to worry about going back to school, this year adds the concern of a possible
