Information Regarding Unscheduled Parent Visits
At Union Chapel, we value communication between home and school. We always want to be able to respond to questions or concerns as quickly and thoroughly as possible. Most of the teachers’ day is spent with children, and just dropping by interrupts instruction and doesn’t allow the teacher to give parents her or his complete attention. That is why we want to make sure all parents are aware of the following: Click here to read more.
November 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 November Students of the Month!

Rockin' Recess Report
Although the sun may be shining, it can be very, very cold outside. Please remind your students to bring their coats, mittens, and hats to school so they have them available to wear at recess. Normally, weather permitting, we are outside until the temperature and/or wind-chill drops below 25 degrees. We need everyone to bundle up! Thank you!
