LESSONS IN LIVING:

The virtue for the summer break is Self-Respect.  

The thought we are focusing on is:

“The way you treat yourself sets the standard for others on how you demand to be treated.”

 

Lessons in Living Liaison.  We are very grateful for the efforts of Mrs. Suzanne Spencer and Mrs. Barb Phillips for being our liaisons this year.  They have both been instrumental in helping in all aspects of Lessons in Living and we value the time and energy they dedicated to LNL this past year.

Care Kids.  We were so happy to have a team of parents guide our 5th grade Care Kids this year.  A huge thank you to Kim Lewis, Jennifer Langdon, Melinda Blonshine, Missy Lucas and Helen Peck.  The students learned so much about service under your mentorship this year!

Builders Club.  Builders Club wouldn’t be possible without the attention of our caring parents.  This year’s Builders Club parents went above and beyond in their duties to help our students learn about leadership and community service.  We are so grateful for Dorothy MacDiarmid, Stephanie Romano, Barb Phillips, Elissa Masler, Kim Lessard, and Helen Peck. A very special thank you to Stacy Brookman, who has been our Builders Club Parent Advisor for many years.  We truly appreciate your hard work and devotion to Builders Club.

Recycled Uniforms.  Please remember that we will be collecting all of your used, but still usable, uniforms in bins outside of the front office May 28-June 6.  Please make sure uniforms have been laundered. A huge thank you to Mrs. Joan King, Recycled Uniform Chairperson, for organizing our uniforms and conducting the sales this year.  We are very grateful for your service!

Community Food Drive.  Many thanks to all of the students and parents who have made sure that our food drive this year was successful.  A special thank you to Mrs. Jeanne Evans, our Food Drive Chairperson, who diligently gathered the food items and facilitated their transport to the Caring Kitchen.  We couldn’t do it without you, Mrs. Evans!

 

 

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
