Books, books, and more books!!

It was overheard on the loading dock that many parents are cleaning out their children’s book cases/shelves.  If you do not know what to do with those books, please think of bringing them to Unity.  Drop them off in the school office.  We will level the books and place them in the ‘just right’ classroom.  A classroom can never have too many books.

 

 

LESSONS IN LIVING:

The virtue of the week is Understanding.  

The thought we are focusing on is:

“If we look into each other’s hearts, and understand the unique challenges each of us faces, we will treat each other much more gently, with more love, patience, tolerance, and care.”

~Marvin J Ashton

This year’s 8th graders reminiscing over past year’s yearbooks.

 

Care Kids.  Our 5th grade students are working with Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County to assist with getting books into the homes of local children and families.  Please check your bookshelves for any gently used books and bring them to school on Monday or Tuesday. If you have volunteered for our Earth Day celebration, you will have the opportunity to learn more about the Literacy Coalition and our Care Kids students involvement with them at that time.

FOOD DRIVE: Throughout the month of March, fourth 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.  

Recycled Uniforms We are always happy to accept uniforms that are still usable for our recycled uniform program.  Please leave any donations at the front desk for pick up.

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.   

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!

Our purpose is to provide a safe, happy environment for your child, where they are able to be themselves and thrive; while acquiring the educational foundation needed to achieve
