Did you know that UCPS students have access to thousands of e-books and other electronic resources through the Union County Public Library without ever having to step foot in a physical library building? They do through the LEAP (Library + Educators as Partners) initiative between UCPS and UCPL.
An integral part of the Leader in Me program in our middle school is students filling leadership roles in the school. While teachers incorporate this in the classroom with a variety of positions, there are also some opportunities to lead in schoolwide jobs. The first two available to in-school students are Broadcast Team member and Library Assistant.
In an effort to serve both in-person and Virtual Academy students this semester, students will have access to media center materials through Destiny, the online catalog system. Students can access Destiny through their Student Startup Page (or more commonly known as their green screen).
My name is Suzanne Trotter and I have been a nurse for 19 years. I graduated from Gardner Webb University. I have been a school nurse in Gaston County for the last 13 1/2 years. My husband and I moved to Indian Trail last fall. I really enjoy working with students and helping them manage their health so they are able to be successful academically.
The Battle of the Books Club is made up of students who read a specified list of books and answer questions from the books in a team format.

There will be an introductory meeting on Friday, September 25 from noon until 12:30 in the media center at SVMS for those who can attend. If interested, please fill out the following form:

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.

Going Green in the Greenhouse
We have a fully functional greenhouse that we want to integrate into our science classes and greenhouse club to teach, hands on, botany and horticulture. The campaign would include start up costs of resources to begin planting. We also need cleaning and set up supplies to be able to make this project a reality for our students.
