Students must remain in Unity uniforms until the very last day of school-
The 8th graders are not required to wear uniforms on Wednesday, May 31, but they must be dressed in Unity approved clothing.
Speaking of uniforms, if your child has outgrown their uniforms, or going from elementary school to middle school (where the colors are different!) we are collecting washed, gently used uniforms for our future uniform sales.  Please just put them in the garbage bin (labeled for the uniforms) outside of the main office.  Thank you in advance.

Message from the school nurses:

End of Year Medication Pickup:

Please pick up your child’s medication the last week of school. All remaining medications that have not been picked up by June 1, 2017 will be discarded. The school cannot store any medications for the following year.

Medication Reminders for Next Year:

●       All prescription/ nonprescription medications must be in the original container with the child’s name clearly marked.  Medications must be dropped off by a parent/guardian.

●       All medications must be accompanied by a “Physician Authorization for Student Medication”  form with parent/guardian’s signature. Prescription medications will also require a physician’s signature. 

●       Any medication (such as Epipens or Inhalers) that a student may carry with them  must be checked in at the clinic at the beginning of the year by the parent/guardian.  The physician must check “yes” on the form stating the student is allowed to “self carry” the medication. 

Health Forms:

●       Students entering Kindergarten need a 2017 School Entry Health Exam (Form DH 3040) and Florida Certificate of Immunizations (Form DH 680)

●       Students entering 7th grade need a 2017 School Entry Health Exam (Form DH 3040)and Florida Certificate of Immunizations (Form DH 680) which includes an updated Tdap (Tetanus immunization).


LESSONS IN LIVING:

The virtue for the summer break is Love. 

The thought we are focusing on is:

“Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen.”



Clean Your Desk Campaign - In keeping with our commitment to “Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle” the “Clean Your Desk” supplies will be donated to local schools / groups in need.  Students may donate their “used but still usable” school supplies.  We will collect the following supplies:

    Pens, pencils, colored pencils                                 Markers, crayons, highlighters

    Scissors, Erasers                                                    Pencil cases

    Loose leaf paper / spiral paper notebooks              Workbooks

                      

Subject workbooks are very helpful to afterschool programs and for homework help.  We will not be collecting binders, folders, backpacks, or lunch boxes.  Please speak with your children and let them know which supplies they can donate and which supplies they can bring home to reuse for next school year.  Thank you in advance for helping others less fortunate.

End of Year Uniform Collection - If you would like to donate your gently used uniforms, please place them in the collection container by the front office.   Please launder your donations prior to placing them in the collection container.

Recycled Uniform Sale - Our final uniform sale of the year will be held on conference day, June 1, from 8:00am to 1:00pm in the events office.  This is the perfect time to beat the fall rush for uniforms and get a great price!

Community Food Drive:  Throughout the month of May, preschool and orientation 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- first entry under the notes section on the right side of the calendar.







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!
