Click here to find a list of upcoming important dates for the 2018-19 school year.

Student identification badges

Student identification badges will be new to Union Chapel for the 2018-19 school year. Students will receive them at back-to-school night. Badges will be used for a variety of purposes, including monitoring when students get on/off the bus, lunch count, lunch payment, and check out/in in the LMC. Each student will receive an ID, badge holder, and lanyard free of charge. We will identify incentives for keeping track of badges, and there will be a charge after one ID replacement. Badges will be kept in a bin in the classroom when not in use. Click here for more information.

“Sharing Smiles” will be new for the 2018-19 school year!

We invite you to share with us a photo of your child(ren) highlighting their community service, academic recognition, arts awards, athletic accomplishment, or another exciting recognition that makes them smile. We will share it with our community on our Sharing Smiles bulletin board as you enter UC. As your family has special events over the summer, keep in mind anything that might be good for the Sharing Smiles board. Please send the digital photo of your child(ren) with a short explanation of the special event to Susan Sadler at sadlers@parkhill.k12.mo.us


Each month we will share new ‘smiles’ for all to see!
