LESSONS IN LIVING:

The virtue of the week is Generosity.  

The thought we are focusing on is:

“The heart that gives, gathers.”

~Tao Te Ching

Angel Tree  Many thanks to all of our wonderful families for adopting 326 angels this year!  Angel Tree wouldn’t be possible without the dedicated parent volunteers that we feel so blessed to have. We are also very grateful for this year’s Angel Tree Committee consisting of Kate Colozzi, Joanne Conde, Jeanne Evans, Keri Judge, Joan King, Loni Markman, and Lisa Shaheen.  So many of you, in addition to the committee, have worked tirelessly with the Angel Tree preparations, sorting, packing and delivery and we are so thankful that you gave us the precious gift of your time! We hope everyone enjoyed the delicious breakfast today in the Fellowship Hall and we can’t wait for next year’s Angel Tree!  

 

 

 

 

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.

Community Food Drive 

Starting in January, second grade will be leading the food drive.  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.  Unity families should feel very proud, you donated 2,303 items to the Caring Kitchen last school year.  Thank you, Jeanne Evans, for chairing this very important drive!

 

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
