Summer is here! We wanted to remind you about how you can help to prevent the “Summer Slide” with your child.
We feel that family involvement is essential to each child’s learning success. We have created a family-fun-activity-calendar your family can do this summer. You can find the activity calendar here.
We have asked that each student to start a “SUMMER JOURNAL”. Your child can record their activities and use this journal as a “diary”. You can use any kind of notebook for the journal.
Each child should document at least two activities each week and bring their SUMMER JOURNAL to the office at Open House
We understand you may not be able to do every activity, but hope you will do as many as possible.

Congratulations to Mrs. McGarty, Mrs. McRorie, and Mrs. Reavis. We wished these ladies a happy retirement at the end of the 2017-18 school year. These three were at Western Union long before many of us came here. While it is hard to know how many lives you have impacted, one thing we know for sure, Western Union will not be the same without you!
