Outdoor Lunch Volunteers Needed

Please reach out to your child's teacher or class room parent if you'd like to assist with outdoor lunch. We will start this back on March 21. See the lunch rotation schedule below for additional information!


Lunch Date With Your Child

If you would like to come to PUE and each lunch with your child, we would love to have you! You can join your child at the designated picnic tables to the right of the front entrance during the week they have outdoor lunch. At this time this can be with only your child, not a friend.

Virtual Talent Show

Greetings Pleasant Union Students, Staff and Families!

This Spring I will be putting together Pleasant Union's 2nd Virtual Talent Show. Our Live Talent show has become a fun tradition and is usually limited to 3-5 graders to keep the show manageable. Due to Covid-19, we had to rethink how we could keep the show going! So, I created a Virtual Showcase last year.

The Virtual Showcase is open to ALL students and allows you to show talents that you have that may not usually be something for the stage. PLUS, you can make your video over and over until you perfect it before submitting!

Maybe you are really good at basketball tricks, sewing, or art? Do you skateboard? Maybe you and your parents like to sing together? What do YOU do that you think is special and unique?

You can make a video of your special talent and submit it to the Flipgrid. It will be reviewed by me and several other teachers.

I will then put the chosen ones together into a Flipgird Mixtape of acts and share it with the school.

Keep in mind, this is totally voluntary! If you are interested, please upload a video by Friday, April 29.

Here is the Flipgrid code to access the site and upload your videos.
