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-mailMrs. Langdonfor any book-related questions and e-mailSunandafor any club-specific question.

After several months of evaluating multiple options and
researching the medical evidence behind a later start time for our secondary
schools, the School Start Times Committee has narrowed down its recommendation
to the Board.
The committee would now like to share its findings and
thoughts with the community. John Nolen
will be hosting several presentations in March for our families to attend. He
will also be presenting to our PTO at their general meetings. Due to
scheduling, he is only able to attend and present to the Patton, PES, and UHS PTO. Please feel free to attend
