LESSONS IN LIVING:

The virtue of the week is Respect.  

The thought we are focusing on is:

“Respect for ourselves guides our morals; respect for others guides our manners.”

Laurence Sterne

                                                                                                                                                                                    

Pause for Peace. Please join us as we “Pause for Peace” on Peace Day, October 22, starting at 8:40 am. We are very excited to spend the morning creating peace with all of our Unity families.  If you wish to volunteer on Peace Day or in the preparations for the day, please email abevan@unityschool.com to find out how you can get involved!  Peace Day is going to be a magical morning you won’t want to miss, whether you are able to volunteer or not.  Please plan on attending this special event where you and your child/children will create peace together.

Builders Club. This week, Meredith Fraysure from the Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County spoke with our students.  Builders Club students were also able to prepare supplies to help budding readers develop early reading skills.  The Literacy Coalition is a not for profit organization committed to ensuring that every resident of Palm Beach County, Florida is able to read.

Community Food Drive.  Throughout the month of October, first 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.  Starting in November, second grade students are in charge of 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.  A huge thank you to Mrs. Jeanne Evans for chairing this important project.

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 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
