Message from our Unity School Nurses:

Thank you to all our families for helping to keep our campus healthy and safe these first several weeks of school!
We ask that you please take a moment to review our current Health Policies, as changes have been made to these documents this year due to COVID-19.  Both the Preschool and Elementary/Middle School Health Policies can be found on the Unity School website.

The virtue for the week is Courage.

Community Food Drive.  

 

Food Drive  Throughout the month of September, kindergarten is leading our food drive in support of the Caring Kitchen. Kindergarten families, as well as any family that has items to donate, are encouraged to bring canned goods as well as other non-perishables during morning drop off.  These goods will be donated to the Caring Kitchen each week to help feed our community.  Each grade will be assigned one month where they will be encouraged to make non-perishable food donations.  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.  Last year’s drive was a huge success, and I’m sure this year’s will be as well.

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.  

 

 

 

 

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 backyard 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
