Union Weekly Staff Update

Volume 36- May 8, 2016

Our Mission

Union Elementary strives to create a nurturing and kid focused learning environment where teachers, students, and parents work together in supportive and collaborative partnerships so all students can meet their potential.

A Message from Jen

The calendar is long, so my message is short:


  • From Trish: All 3rd and 4th grade classes will be meeting in the green computer lab and will need headphones and their STEM journal.
  • Exciting news! On Friday, our PTO approved spending for new teacher laptops, Chromebooks for third and fourth grades, and materials for the outdoor classroom. Woo hoo! If you see a PTO member, give them a hug! I've already been in touch with the tech department so it looks like we will start the 2016-2017 school year with some new devices!
  • On Monday, Erin and I will be out at a safety training. Maggie will be out for part of the morning for an appointment. Erin and I will be available by text/email throughout the day, but will not be able to provide hands on assistance. Just FYI.
  • Have a fabulous last full week of school!!
