Union Elementary School Parents' Group

The UES Parents’ Group Mission is to support the goals and ambitions of the school community. We provide financial and volunteer assistance for enrichment activities and resources, advocate for strong schools, and bring UES and the community together.

Last year, USPG raised over $13,000 to fund field trips, equipment, performances, the snack program, and other enrichment activities. USPG has always offered many opportunities for parents to get involved in their kids’ school and for community building. This year we hope to include not just the traditional events such as the Book Fair, Bingo/Ice Cream Social, Movie Night and Staff Appreciation Breakfast, but also to develop new avenues for parents to participate. Read on for some ways to help out and get involved right away, and throughout the year.

Union Elementary School is turning 75!

UES is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, and USPG wants to contribute to the excitement! Anyone who loves history and celebrations should please contact Jenny Sheehan to get involved.

JumpRopeWe are proud to announce to our MPS community that our second Jump Rope for Heart event generated a whopping $4,404.77 for the American Heart Association.  During the month-long event, students learned a fun lifetime habit of making their heart and lungs healthy and strong through jump-roping.  They also learned the act of community, state, and national service by raising funds for the American Heart Association.  For their efforts, students will be rewarded with prizes from the American Heart Association depending on how much money they each raised.   A big "thank you" to our parents and teachers at Union for their contributions.  We hope to defend the 1st Place plaque we won from last year's event for Division 3 schools in Vermont.
In health,
Emmanuel and MJ
