Realignment Draft Maps
Community members can view drafts of realignment maps at three Union County libraries. The maps will be available at the Monroe, Union West and Waxhaw branches throughout the realignment process. The draft maps will still be accessible from the Student Realignment Citizens Advisory Committee webpage, which can be accessed from the UCPS website at www.ucps.k12.nc.us. Details about the branches can be found here.
On November 15th, the fifth graders set off for their annual overnight field trip to Wilmington, NC. While there, students saw their recent Ecosystems science unit come to life during a hands-on Ocean Studies program on Masonboro Island where students caught crabs, hunted for seashells, and learned about the plants and animals that inhabit the island.
During the week of November 6th our first graders were busy making bread. Our students learned that a recipe was another kind of informational text. The lesson also integrated science, social studies, math and social skills. It was hands on and engaging! The best part of it was that is was also fun and yummy!
