UES PTO 2022
Food Drive to Benefit Kennett Area Community Service!
Check your pantries, place an order, or head to the store because starting Tuesday, Sept 27th, we are holding a food drive to benefit KACS, ending on Monday, Oct 3rd. KACS distributed 59,259 lbs of food in July alone and, in the same month, they received only 8,547 lbs of donations.
All four UCFSD elementaries will be participating in a friendly competition for a school-wide popsicle party. Or if we collectively donate 5,000 lbs of food, ALL elementary schools will win a popsicle party!
Last fall, UE alone collected nearly 1,100 lbs of food. We have an opportunity to do some good at a time when it is very much needed. It's time to shine UE!

Unionville Elementary School Library Celebration Book Program!
Sign up for the Celebration Book Program to recognize your child’s birthday or half birthday, an achievement, or “just because”.
By participating in the program your child will be able to select a book from the librarian’s “Celebration Book Collection” of new books and donate it to the library in his/her/their honor. Your child’s name will be inscribed in the book, and will be the first one to check it out of the library to bring home and read.
This program will enable us to expand our library’s collection while celebrating your child for years to come!
If you are interested, please send cash (exact amount) or a check for $15 made out to Unionville Elementary School, care of Mrs. Langdon in the library, no later than Monday, October 3rd, 2022. Mrs Langdon will send home a form for you to select a date to honor your child.

Peachjar Digital Flyer Board
Throughout the year you'll be receiving emails from Peachjar, which is the district approved "digital message board" for non-UCFSD affiliated enrichment activities, sports, creative programs, fundraisers, clubs, and events.
Peachjar helps parents say on top of the latest and greatest opportunities our school district has to offer beyond PTO updates.
All of the flyers, links, and information that is emailed out lives on our Peachjar UE Flyer Board and can be accessed at any time. So next time you're looking for that URA Basketball sign up information, info about a Dine & Donate fundraiser, or discount Philadelphia Union tickets, and you can't find it anywhere in your email (we've all been there), please check out our Peachjar Flyer Board to find what you're looking for.
Direct Donation Drive
A simple, no fuss, fundraiser allowing 100% (minus PayPal fees) of your donation to go directly to Unionville Elementary School. The PTO budgets about $100 per student on activities that enrich your child’s educational experience. Tax receipts are available upon request.
Click the link below to make a direct donation via PayPal. Checks are also accepted, made payable to UES PTO, and can be dropped off in the office.
