Art Room News: In preparation for a paper weaving project in first grade, I am looking to collect any ribbons (fabric preferred), fabric strips, "rick-rack", chains, beads, interestingly colored yarns, and even plastic vines, etc. which can be woven through their cut-paper warps as the wefts. The length - if you are cutting these for us -, should be around 10 inches. Many thanks in advance, Ms. Bell
TEACHER APPRECIATION BREAKFAST Friday, 5/12/17
Calling all parents who love their teachers! We need your help…
We are planning a wonderful Teacher Appreciation Breakfast for Friday, May 12, 2017 to give a big thank you to our teachers and staff for all they do for our children.
To pull off this event, as always, we appreciate parent support in any of the following ways:
- We have a vast shopping list of food that we would like to offer our teachers that morning. If you are interested in preparing one of our dishes, please contact TAB Chair Rebecca Steen-Jorgensen at email@example.com or (561) 702-0077 for specifics. Several parents have already stepped up, but we still have some pies and desserts available to bake.
- If you are not a baker, but would still like to contribute, we are taking cash donations to help with the shopping list. This is completely voluntary. If you are interested in making a cash donation, please contact TAB Chair, Joann Conde at firstname.lastname@example.org or (561)870-6032 OR put your cash donation in an envelope with your name on it and deposit it into the envelope in the Front Office.
- If you are interested in helping with decorating the cafeteria on Thurs. 5/11 at 1:00PM to 3:30PM, please contact TAB Chair, Gina Sinberg at email@example.com or 954-461-1660.
- Room parents have already volunteered to be in the classroom with the students the morning of the event while the teachers enjoy their special breakfast.
- If you are interested in serving the morning of the event Fri. 5/12 starting at 7:30AM to 10:00AM, or can help with clean-up 10:00AM to 12:00PM, please contact TAB Chair Zaicha Spodak at firstname.lastname@example.org or (305) 439-7716.
Thank you all so very much for your participation and support. This day really means so much to our teachers.
Your Teacher Appreciation Breakfast Chairs and fellow Parents,
Gina Sinberg, Rebecca Steen-Jorgensen, Zaicha Spodak, and Joann Conde
LESSONS IN LIVING:
The virtue for the upcoming week is: Acceptance
The thought we are focusing on is:
“Accept what is, let go of what was, and have faith in what will be.”
Community Food Drive:
For 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.
Lessons in Living Volunteer Meeting - May 3 at 8:25 a.m. in the Lessons in Living Room - This is our final meeting of the year for Lessons in Living. In this meeting, we will discuss volunteer opportunities for the end of this school year as well as set up Committee Chair Volunteers for the 2017-2018 school year for recycled uniform sales, monthly community food drives, Peace Day, Angel Tree, Care and Support Team, and more. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend.
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!
