Principal’s Message

Join us in celebrating our students, families and staff at our cultural night on Wednesday. See below for details. It will be the first annual event. We’re excited for new traditions in our new building. We’d love to have the support of our families and the community.

Remember that the mid-term deadline is this Friday, for 4th quarter.  All of your student’s schoolwork must be turned in before that date for the first half of 4th quarter.  Please review your student’s grades and missing work on Skyward. Contact the office for assistance.

Rise testing for this year will be from May 6th to May 17th with make-ups from May 20th to May 24th.

Lagoon Day for 8th graders is on May 28th. There will be no school that day for 8th graders that choose not to attend Lagoon.

Thank you for all your support and efforts for Union Middle School.  We have the best community.

Reminders from Student Services

8th grade students,
Your Q4 grades determine if you are eligible to participate in any high school fall activity. If you are planning to be involved in any extracurriculars during high school, please ensure you’re reaching a minimum 2.0 GPA (C average).

We have recently finished our Executive Functioning groups and High School Prep group. We are in the middle of our STRONG (Supporting Transition Resilience of Newcomer Groups) curriculum, and look forward to working with these selected students through May. A DBT Girls Group will be starting within the next few weeks, and we are excited to help provide coping, resilience, and social skills to these students.

As a reminder, students who receive discipline referrals for telling others to ‘go kill yourself’ will be meeting with a counselor for a lesson on empathy, how words harm, and make a plan to move forward with kindness.

ParentGuidance.org is a wonderful resource for parents and students. It provides courses and discords on many aspects of life, including talking about suicidality with your teens, harmful effects of vaping or pornography, watching and helping with eating disorders, and more. We strongly encourage parents to utilize this resource! One we have enjoyed recently, is R.E.A.L. Relationships. This course focuses on the important foundations of building healthy relationships and looks towards the power of empathy to help guide interactions. Reinforcing social emotional skills taught at school by teaching them at home, helps parents to raise resilient kids. We hope you join us in gaining additional skills to support Union students.
