On Friday, June 5, 2020 Todd Ford and several members of the Castaways (PR’s theatrical performers) presented Quaranscream, a virtual play written and produced by Ford. In the play a group of professionals met in the midst of a pandemic on Zoom to discuss the budget; however, it quickly degraded into discussions of hand sanitizer and toilet paper. Find out what happened as the group slowly unraveled like the last roll of toilet paper they so desperately needed.
This year students, parents, teachers and staff celebrated Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week (May 4th-8th) virtually. Since schools are closed due to COVID-19, PRHS, StuCo and the PR community found new and fun ways to show their appreciation. Whether sending StuCo's traditional Pirate Pearls electronically or simply sending a thank you email, teachers and staff were recognized and thanked for their commitment to educating Pirates and staying #Committed.
Panorama Survey 2020
Union County Public Schools values the feedback of our students, parents and staff. In an effort to continue high quality, rigorous learning experiences and social-emotional support for students, the school district has partnered with Panorama Education to administer a survey to 3rd – 12th graders. The survey window is Sept. 28 – Oct. 8 and will take approximately 20 minutes to complete. The link will be sent via Canvas and students will need their Student ID for access. Panorama safeguards student privacy and all responses will be kept confidential.
