Wow! Union Elementary has ROCKED this school year! I am so proud of the students and teachers for all of their hard work! As we Roll through the end of this fantastic year, I want to thank our parents for their support. We couldn't reach our goals without you. You are your child's first teacher. This summer, I encourage you to find materials that your children will enjoy reading (National Geographic for Kids, Sports Illustrated for Kids, etc.). If possible, visit a museum or a park. Attend a ballgame. Spend time together as a family. Most importantly, enjoy your summer!
