LOOKING FOR PARENT EXPERTS
Parents - We are looking to incorporate you (or your friends/loved ones) skills into our Western Union Family and learning. As we finish out this year, and start into next year, Western Union plans to integrate more Project-Based Learning into the classrooms. One great element is having outside experts come in and talk to the grades.

2019 UCPS Parent Survey

We encourage you to participate and share your feedback through an anonymous format that will be used to improve our teaching and learning practices and the overall UCPS experience for families.

Since October 2018, Western Union’s Elementary Battle of the Books (EBOB) team has been working hard to prepare for this year’s county competition. On Monday, March 18th, they competed against 18 other elementary teams at the Union County Ag Center. Although they did not make it to the final round, they worked extremely hard and showed excellent teamwork through some very tough questions!
On February 27, Mrs. Deering's class had an exciting break in her morning meeting. A group from Homes for Heroes surprised the class with a special award for Mrs. Deering. Mrs. Deering was honored as the Hero of the Month by Waxhaw Homes for Heroes. She received a gift bag full of gift cards and items that were donated by local businesses.
