Congratulations to the following students who had "Pizza with the Principal"!

Students have been earning "RESPECT" tickets since the beginning of the year. They write their names on the back of the ticket and the teachers collect them. Every Friday we draw a respect ticket from each grade level and that student receives a prize. At the end of the month, we take all the respect tickets for that month and we draw 10 names for pizza with the principal. These lucky students were the winners for the month of September. I'm so proud of these students and after eating lunch with them, it made sense why they were chosen. Such a great group of kiddos!

Principal's Message

As we near our Thanksgiving, I would like to share some things that I am thankful for at Unity Elementary:

*I am thankful for students who eagerly come to school to learn as much as is possible each day.
*I am thankful for a beautiful school where student can come to learn and grow.
*I am thankful for teachers and staff who give many hours of their day to provide students with the instruction and guidance needed to help students succeed.
