In the third round of the Books and Brackets Reading Challenge, four Union County Public Schools are headed to the finish line. The Final 4 schools are (in no particular order) Union, Indian Trail, Kensington and Rocky River elementary schools.
“I like to read,” said Union Elementary third-grader Gabriel Williams (not pictured). “Sometimes when I read, I learn new stuff about things I didn’t even know about. If you don’t read, you probably won’t find out stuff, and you wouldn’t know things when somebody asks you something. So you should read to learn new things.”
More than 200 job seekers turned out for the UCPS Spring Career Fair at Weddington High School Saturday, March 18. Principals and assistant principals were on hand from 38 UCPS elementary, middle and high schools, as well as nine UCPS departments.
In the second round of the Books and Brackets Reading Challenge, eight Union County Public Schools continue to run toward the finish line.
