SPIRIT WEEK AT UNES
PTA / IDEA NEXT MEETING - JANUARY 11
8:50 AM START TIME
In the mornings, I stand outside until 8:50am with music and high fives at the ready. At 8:50am, I begin my "migration" towards the front door and try to inspire kids that are still making their way to school to "beat me through the doors" to avoid getting a late pass. After the front doors have closed, students are required to get a late pass.
Recently, it seems that there are more and more people coming later to school as the winter goes on. Please make every effort to have your children here and in the front door by 8:50am. Your cooperation is appreciated.
