Hello Parents,


This is Tom Childers contacting you from Antioch Elementary. Four days of school remaining until Spring Break!

The fifth grading period will end on April 16th. Our first and fifth graders will travel for field trips on April 16th as well. The AES School Improvement Team will meet on April 17th. You may contact your parent representative with questions or concerns.

2nd Grade Parent Representative - Mrs. Stefanie Aranda s-aranda@outlook.com

There is no school on Friday, April 19th and students will have spring break on April 22nd - April 26th.


Union County Public Schools will operate on a normal schedule May 1, 2019. UCPS has partnered with the Union County Association of Educators (UCAE) and the UCPS Professional Advisory Council on a plan to send a delegation of teachers/staff, from each school, where possible, to Raleigh on May 1.


As a forward thinking school system, several of the concerns raised by the NCAE have already been addressed by the Union County Board of Education and senior leadership through direct advocacy with state legislators.


We want to thank our teachers/staff and the leaders of our teacher representative groups for their partnership as we work to maintain a school day that is focused on high-quality instruction in a safe learning environment.
