Union Weekly Staff Update
Volume 30- March 20, 2016
A Message from Jen
We have just 4 days left until Spring Break, and only 4 days left with our fabulous colleagues Jackie Abbott (kindy), Dana Patterson (music), Katie Janey (OT Intern), and Justina Adams (School Health Care Professional). They have quickly become part of our school family and we are so appreciative of all that they have done for our staff, students, and families. Please join me in the staff lounge on Thursday morning for some breakfast treats in their honor.
In other celebrations, let's close out March in comfort. Since we will all be in Beach Attire of Thursday, everyone is welcome to wear jeans Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday this week.
See you in the morning!
Teachers by day, Park rangers by night
The Purple Cave...uh, Pod
And they came back!
Despite being at school far beyond their bedtimes, students and parents were back at Union Saturday morning for the annual Easter Egg hunt.

Custodial and Maintenance Needs
As we look ahead to Spring Break....and soon to follow summer...we would like to get a jump on some of the bigger issues. If there are cleaning or maintenance concerns (think things like "major stain on carpet" or "wallpaper peeling") please send Teresa and me an email. We are hoping to get work orders in early this year so that they can be addressed prior to the summer rush of all 7 buildings requesting assistance.
