From the Principal:

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! This morning, I would like to highlight some of the "behind the scenes" work that happens in Union School District and Carlton Ave Elementary School. The split photo above shows the before and after shots from the Tk/Kindergarten play area. The old sandbox and planter boxes we crumbling apart and there were chunks of concrete just below the surface. Union School District's Maintenance & Operations as well as Landscape teams were here last Saturday turning an unusable space into a beautiful, clean and safe spot in the TK/Kinder pay area. Staff are brainstorming the best use of this space, possibly for painting or other outdoor exploratory activities. I am so grateful for our wonderful teams that support all of the schools, keeping them safe and looking fantastic!!!
