Union Is Thankful

As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, we the administration, faculty, and staff at Union Middle School would like to express our sincere gratitude to everyone who has supported us during our fire reconstruction.  We would like to thank the district office for supporting us with the additional manpower necessary to open up the school immediately following the fire. We would like to thank the Canyons School Board for their support throughout this reconstruction process. We would like to thank the construction crew, technology crew, and disaster relief crew for their round the clock efforts to have our building ready for returning to a regular class day beginning December 2.  We would like to thank our amazing students for their positive energy and attitude. Despite having to adjust to a half day schedule and changing locations of classrooms, our students have remained focused on learning. We are especially thankful to our community of parents who have shown nothing but support throughout this endeavor. We thank you for the supportive emails and words of encouragement and for entrusting us with your students everyday while we rebuild Union and return to normalcy.  Thank you to everyone. Our hearts are full this holiday season.
