LESSONS IN LIVING:

The virtue of the week is Generosity.  

The thought we are focusing on is:

Every sunrise is an invitation for us to arise and brighten someone’s day.”

Richelle E. Goodrich


Angel TreeMany thanks to all of the volunteers who have worked so diligently to make Angel Tree successful!  Also, a big thank you to all of the families who have taken the time to “adopt” an angel and make a child’s holiday wishes come true.  We are so fortunate to have so many generous families among us! Thank you for supporting those who need it. We can still use your help packing and delivering the gifts to the six organizations we are working with this year.  Please see this Signup Genius link to volunteer for next week.

Care Kids.  December is an exciting month for our fifth grade Care Kids!  Our students will be taking their first service trip to RCMA on December 20th.  If you have a fifth grade student, don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to see your children display all of the qualities we know you work so hard to instill in them.  During our service trip, our students will share books and the love of reading as well as snacks and playtime with the preschool migrant children at RCMA. Please see this SignUpGenius link to sign up for this and other exciting Care Kids events happening throughout the school year.

Community Food Drive.   Starting in November and carrying through until winter break, middle school students are in charge of leading the food drive.   Thus far they have collected nearly 1000 items of non perishable food!!   GREAT JOB to the 6th, 7th and 8th grade students!!!      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
