Can you believe how fast this summer is going? We hope everyone is taking care of the three summer “R’s” – Resting, Relaxing and Reading. At Western Union Elementary we are busy preparing for the 2016-17 school year. Even though students and staff are not at school, there is a lot of work that happens during the summer.
Students at Western Union Elementary recently raised money and learned about Heifer International’s global initiative to work with communities to end hunger and poverty around the world. Students learned more about Heifer International’s mission of helping families to become more self-reliant and how their efforts will make a difference in the lives of people that are in need.
