Union Square

Students at Union were able to participate in a variety of rotations on Tuesday that exposed them to the ways of life in the Colonial Days.  Students learned about quill writing, quilting, tools, types of food, candle making, and so much more!  We are so appreciative to all of the volunteers who helped make the 2nd annual event a success!


"Hair's" to a Drug Free Life!

The students and staff participated in a series of events and pledged to live a drug free life during Red Ribbon Week.  Destiny, a first grade student, showed her support and is devoted to live to a drug free life!


Union's Green Recycling Program

Union, as well as other schools in our district, participate in a "green” initiative in an effort to reduce the amount of textile waste that is dumped into our landfills.  Each year, 13.1 million tons of textile waste is generated in the US.  This material generates over 28 million pounds of CO2 each year.  We can make a change by participating in a repurpose program that recycles the textiles and generates money for Union Elementary.  A large bin has been placed on the side of the parking lot as you exit our campus.  You may drop off any unwanted textiles and place in the bin.  Clothes, shoes, handbags, belts, hats, curtains, towels, sheets, blankets, bed spreads, etc can be donated.  It doesn’t matter if the materials are stained or damaged.  For every 490 pounds of textiles our school collects, Union receives money to spend on educational needs.  From now until December 1, the school in the district that collects the most textiles will also receive an additional $1000. 


Union Exceeds Expected Growth!

Union Elementary  was 1 out of 9 LCS schools to exceed expected growth again this year.  We also met all of our measurable targets!  This is an outstanding accomplishment and a reflection of the collaborative effort of our staff, students, and parents.  Way to go Owls!!!
