TEAM ALTA VISTA
Union School District is teaming up to support the lifesaving mission of the American Cancer Society. This year's Relay for Life event will take place on April 26th and 27th at Union Middle School.
I have created Team Alta Vista as a way to show we care. You can be a part of the cure by simply visiting the Relay for Life website, searching for Team Alta Vista and making a donation. No amount is too small - our collective efforts can make a huge difference. Thank you!
