Mr. Jason Walsh
Los Banos Junior High School
I would like to welcome back our members for the 2016-2017 school year. Many exciting things are happening throughout our district. Creekside Junior High School will be opening its doors, providing relief to the 7th and 8th grade students. As LBUSD continues to grow, more and more teachers are needed in our community. We have hired over fifty new teachers who are excited to come and be part of the traditions we have established here in Los Banos. I am very grateful for the continued and new service of the LBTA Representatives across the district. I would specifically like to thank our officers, and Executive Board Members, Jeff Miller (Vice President), Karel Brady (Treasurer), Andi Clarke (Secretary), Amanda Baker, Francine Baker, Jeff De La Cruz, Alisha De La Cruz, Jennifer Wilkin, Vicki Costello, Ila Nelson, and Jim Foster. In recognition of many years of dedicated service, I would also like to thank our former LBTA President Randy Nocito. The teachers in our community owe Mr. Nocito a tremendous amount of gratitude. Have a great year!
Jason Walsh, President
Los Banos Teachers Association
Thank you for your dedication and service Mr. Nocito. The time and energy you invested to represent and advocate for your colleagues and our LBUSD students is greatly appreciated!
"Welcome Back! This week, LBUSD opened its doors with over 10,000 students and 440 teachers. We are growing indeed. Next year at this time, we will be opening a second junior high and Mercey Springs Elementary will have doubled in size. It’s hard to believe just a few years ago we were laying teachers off during the “Great Recession”. For those serving as LBTA executive board members, site reps, and committee members; I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks for your service to our members. Members serving members; that’s what makes this association great! Have an awesome year."
“An updated copy of our LBTA committee members has been added to the Committee section of our LBTA website. I would like to thank all of the members who have volunteered to serve on our various committees. I would also like to thank all of our members who have been elected building reps at each of the sites. Members serving members. That’s what makes LBTA great.”
-LBTA President, Randy Nocito
“Welcome back to the 2014-15 school year. I would like to thank my colleagues for selecting me to represent them as LBTA president. I am looking forward to another great school year. I would also like to recognize my fellow executive board officers: Andrea Clarke (Vice President), Karel Brady (Treasurer), and Jennifer Wilkin (Secretary). Together, we look forward to serving the association and our members.”
-LBTA President, Randy Nocito

Mr. Parreira retired! He will certainly be missed by students and staff, and of course the LBTA membership that he served so diligently over the years. Thanks for all of your hard work and CONGRATULATIONS Mr. Parreira!
