While food, water and shelter are essential, so is a childhood, complete with education and opportunities to actively engage with other children. There are areas of the world today where children are not able to experience the benefits of play–this is the problem that this organization- - Right to Play, is trying to “tackle”. The third grade gators helped raise over 180 dollars for this organization! The third grade teachers are so proud of their efforts in making brochures and spreading what they have learned about this program. You all have helped make a positive change in the world!
Welcome Class of 2029! Kindergarten registration for Union County Public Schools will run Feb. 8-12. Parents should register their child at the elementary school located in their attendance area. “Entering kindergarten is an exciting time for children and families because it marks the beginning of a new and exciting phase of a child's life,” said Dr. Cindy Croffut, director of elementary education. “In preparation for kindergarten, parents can be a great support as they work with their child at home to establish routines, create independence, and build excitement about school.”
Fourth grade was proud to participate in a global project that supports peace within communities. Our grade level chose the Peace Players International Organization because of the focus on using sports, specifically basketball and peace building activities to encourage peace.
The Water Project is an organization that raises money to provide fresh water wells for communities in need. Kindergarten took on this challenge to raise money and awareness. We were hoping to collect enough money to purchase a well…and we did!
As a result of the recent legislative change enacted this October, our school will potentially receive additional Teacher Assistant(s) as members of our staff. We are making several changes that will accommodate for the additions to our teaching team. Per the legislative change enacted, all of our Teacher Assistants will be dedicated to providing direct service to K-3 students. We are very excited about this possible opportunity to add dedicated professionals to our family of educators.
