UGE Vision

Unity Grove Elementary will be an exemplary personalized learning community whose graduates are empowered to engage in a complex, interconnected, changing world. We believe that this can be achieved by facilitating a dynamic learning environment supported by data driven decision making among teachers, students, and parents.

Digital in the Grove:

This week's newsletter is all digital! I wanted to try out some digital tools I discovered this weekend in hopes that you may also find them useful in your classroom. They are all free and SUPER easy to use! I know that time to peruse tech tools can be scarce so I included short videos that allow you to get an overview of the tool in a snap! Enjoy!
