Humanities Overview Page
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.

The Humanities Director provides support and resources to Kindergarten through 12th grade teachers. Included in the Humanities Department are the visual arts, band, chorus, music, theater arts, dance, physical education, health, and sports medicine teachers.
The humanities are a critical component of a child's education. Humanities education contributes to brain development and higher-level cognitive functions, from creativity to fine and gross motor skills. Additionally, self-expression and individuality are fostered through a child's continuing engagement in the humanities.
