Help Keep Our New Building Beautiful

We are so grateful to have such a beautiful new building that was paid for by your tax dollars. Our teachers and staff want to make sure the building stays well-kept and clean for years to come.  We are starting to see an uptick in gum being chewed by students. As you can imagine, some of this gum is ending up in our new carpet, under desks, and other inappropriate places. We do have a strict no gum policy at Union. Please help your students understand this and we do appreciate your support.

Checking Out Students

Our new building is a lot bigger than our old building. If you’re checking your student out of school early, please be patient with our office staff and aids. It takes a few minutes to grab students from their classes. Because of this we ask that you account for that time when checking students out. Also, if you’re checking out at the end of the day we ask you come no later than 2:30, when possible. Thank you for understanding.

Our New Library!

We are excited for our library to be ready for students! Ms. Zhang says she will be ready to open to the students next Monday, November 20 just in time for the Thanksgiving week! We are stocking it with 4000 brand new books which are due to arrive and be shelved this week. 

Ms. Zhang worked hard to make sure your students still had access to books and made a makeshift library out of an extra classroom. We’re so grateful to her for her flexibility and passion for our students literacy and fostering a love for reading within them.
