LESSONS IN LIVING:

White Stone Ceremony.  This week in Lessons in Living, our students in K-8 participated in our white stone ceremony.  This ceremony traditionally happens in the new year after the burning bowl.  During the burning bowl last week, we rid ourselves of those thoughts, feelings, or limitations that don’t serve us in the new year.  This week, we invite in the new positive thoughts and limitless possibilities we have for our future, starting today.



Community Food Drive.  Throughout the month of January, second grade students and families are asked to bring in canned food and non-perishable items and place them in the collection container outside of their homerooms.  Your generous donations are taken to the Caring Kitchen and will serve local families in need. Each grade is assigned one month where they will be encouraged to make non-perishable food donations each week. To see which month your children will be asked to donate food, check your Unity School calendar - it’s the first entry under the notes section on the right side of the calendar.  Third grade will be collecting starting in February.

Shoes2You.   Shoes2You, Inc. was developed in 2013 by Joseph Rubsamen, a Unity School graduate, who was inspired to help provide shoes for people living in poverty.  Unity School accepts shoes for donation to Shoes2You, Inc. year round.  Please place any gently used shoes in the bin in front of the middle school office.  


The virtue of the week is Intuition.  

The thought we are focusing on is:

“There is a voice that doesn’t use words, listen.”

TREE TO TRAY PROGRAM:
Do you or someone you know have fruit bearing trees in the yard?  Then be a part of Unity School’s exciting Tree to Tray program. Parents can drop off bags or boxes of local, organically grown fruits that come from your own families’ trees.  Unity’s Food Service Director, Lori Robbins, will be using the fruit from our trees, and turning it into delicious meals that end up on our children’s lunch trays.  So, those wonderful avocados that are filling your trees right now will be used to make fresh, homemade guacamole for taco day.  And the limes, oranges and lemons make wonderful, flavored water for our children and for family events at school.  Donating these items helps expose our children to food they may not normally eat.  Fresh food is a crucial part of our children’s health and provides the nutrients and energy they need to fully participate in all of the educational and enrichment activities here at Unity.   All fresh produce is welcome!  Each month we will feature the items that are seasonally harvested as a reminder to support this program.  Help us get your extra fruit off your trees and onto our children’s trays!
