A couple of reminders from our Unity School Nurses:

  • Parents, please remember to wash your child’s mask regularly.
  • Masks should fit snugly across a child’s face, fully covering their nose and mouth.  If a mask is too large or stretched out, it doesn’t provide the right coverage or protection.
  • If your child(ren) is/are having any flu-like symptoms, please keep them home.  Please notify your child’s teacher and the school nurses at clinic@unityschool.com.  We are doing everything we can here on campus to keep students healthy and safe, and we ask that you continue to do this at home as well.

Thank you.

LESSONS IN LIVING:

Food Drive: Your donated goods have been instrumental in feeding our local community through the Caring Kitchen.

Recycled Uniforms  Please remember that we are accepting donations of used but still usable uniforms for our Recycled Uniform department.  You may bring in your donations at drop-off or pick up to be placed by a staff member in our uniform bins.  Thank you for your support!

LESSONS IN LIVING:

The Virtue of the week is :

INTUITION

The thought we are focusing on is:

 “My intuition is my compass, it points me in the right direction and guides my way.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Community Food Drive.  

 

Food Drive During any month, 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 will be as well.

 

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
