FROM THE PTO DESK...


Message from the PTO President

Well, we have almost made it and are in the home stretch! Springtime is a very busy time in the schools, so don’t give up on us yet -- we still need your help for a few things!  

Last week, we started May off with a bang by setting up an extensive coffee bar for the teachers. They were greatly appreciative, and the caffeinated beverages were restocked multiple times. We know the way to their heart. Thank you for all of your tokens of appreciation throughout the week. The grand finale of Teacher Appreciation Week was a lunchtime fiesta. A huge thank-you to those who contributed to the lunch. It was something fun and different, and the staff raved about it. Well done!

A few things to make note of for the remainder of the month are listed below.  Volunteers may be needed, so please keep the momentum going for a few more weeks!

May 15: School Toolboxes for the 2017/18 school year sale begins

May 19: Final PTO meeting; we will vote in the 2017/18 Board Members

May 24-26: Book Fair (sign-up available soon)

Attention Committee Chairs...

If you have not done so already, please notify Megan Cromer at uespto@ucfsd.net to let her know whether or not you will continue to chair the same activities for the 2017/18 school year, or if you will be stepping down. All open chair positions will be posted the first week in June.

Special Thanks

A big thank-you goes out to all who worked with Becky Bondi to make this year's "Starshine" yearbook a success: Dan White (super-amazing, professional-quality photo contributions to the yearbook which he made spanning a multitude of Friday mornings all fall and early winter); Dana Mayer (processed and tracked all yearbook payments); Kristin Scali (assisting with sorting and labeling and distributing all yearbooks in the weeks to come); all the folks who contributed photos; Dr. Lafferty'sTwitter feed (from which many photos were lifted)!

UE Birthday Book Club

You’re invited to join the Unionville Elementary School Birthday Book Club (BBC)!

It’s an opportunity for your child to celebrate his or her big day by giving a gift of reading to our school and to support our library by adding a book chosen from a carefully selected book list.

You can also donate a book to the BBC in honor of another child's birthday (instead of buying a gift, gift a book in their honor!), or for other special occasions in your child's life. It is the gift that keeps on giving for many years! Please e-mail Mrs. Langdon for any book-related questions and e-mail Sunanda for any club-specific question.

Please click here for more information and to get started!




Attention Parents Interested in STEM: Maker Space


Mrs. Langdon needs help planning for UES' Maker Space - a space where students can create, explore & discover using a variety of materials. If you would like to serve on the Maker Space Committee, please email her at rlangdon@ucfsd.net. Whether you can only communicate through email or have time to meet during/after school, she could use your ideas. We will be working on a mission and goals, determining materials needed, designing the room and developing fundraising ideas.

E-mail any questions or special requests: unionvilleyardsale@gmail.com
