Work Party Thanks!

Thank you to our work party crew: Leia Pollard, Shaylin & Dinon McIntosh, Elizabeth & Levi Okin, Susan Stein, Erik Salholm, Chad & Nolan Sefcik, Phoebe & Pearl Smith, after school teachers Becky & Mary, and Rea Erickson. They spread chips, mowed the poetry garden, weeded blackberries, cleaned the porch and benches, trimmed the rose & rosemary bushes and cleaned classrooms. We hope to see you at the next work party on May 4th.

Drop-off & Pick-up Reminder

If you park across from the school in front of the Parkway apartments, you must use the crosswalk at MLK Parkway to cross the street safely. Please do not cross in front of the school. Please follow directions of driveway staff. Thank you for your cooperation.

School Survey Reminder, Please Complete by February 8

We have only received 19 surveys so far. If you haven’t already, please take a few minutes to complete a survey. It’s quick and easy! Paper surveys are posted on the parent information board and available in the office.

Valentine’s Day at Union Street Charter

Please do not use the school campus, playground, driveway, or cubbies to pass out Valentine cards or treats from home or from the store. Thank you for supporting our no pop-culture policy. Each classroom celebrates Valentine’s Day in a manner appropriate for that grade and class. Talk to your child’s teacher if you have any questions about Valentine’s Day. Thank you!
