Welcome to the fifth episode of UCPS Now, a show that highlights Union County Public Schools staff, students and schools.

This month, we visited Marvin Ridge High, Monroe High and Central Academy of Technology and Arts. Students took a trip to the past to learn about the Civil Rights Movement, stepped in help a teacher and discovered China through a cultural experience.

UCPS Now is produced by the Union County Public Schools Communications Office. We hope you enjoy our show.
