December Students of the Month

Each month, one student from each classroom is chosen by the teacher to receive the honor as Student of the Month. Students are selected based on consistent academic or behavioral excellence or improvement. Each student receives a certificate, as well as, a card from his or her teacher explaining why she or he was chosen that month. Congratulations to all our December Students of the Month!

Mrs. Claus Stops by Union Chapel

Recently, Union Chapel kindergarten students had the pleasure of enjoying the stories of Mrs. Claus. She shared stories about Santa’s favorite cookie—gingerbread, of course. Click here for more.

Thrid Grade at the Ballet

Union Chapel 3rd graders went to a special matinee of the Nutcracker Ballet. This is always a special day at Union Chapel. The excitement and anticipation starts with a special workshop a few days before. A few of the performers come equipped with ballet shoes and costumes to provide the students with an explanation of the Nutcracker story and information about the specific performance they will see. This is always a fun time for students, not to mention a great cultural experience! Click here for pictures.

5th Grade Performs at Crown Center

Our 5th grade choir, Gator Choir, performed at Crown Center Thursday, December 18. It was a perfect night. Students were delighted to sing! The snow was the perfect backdrop along with the brightly lit Christmas trees. It was a magical night!
