With the cold weather and new security system going into effect after Thanksgiving, we think it's a good time to remind the community that Union Elementary does not open its doors until 8:00 am. As of December 2, the doors to the school will be locked and staff will not be available until that hour, so it's very important to make sure your child is NOT dropped off before that time. Adult supervision inside and out will begin at 8:00 am in the cafeteria for those who want breakfast, the playground, and "Quiet Start" in the library (which is limited to the first 40 students who choose to go to the library). The bell rings at 8:20 for the official start to the day. The half hour between 7:30 and 8:00 is always busy for our faculty and staff preparing the day and participating in meetings, so we really appreciate all of your cooperation with this! Please let me know if you have any questions.

Kindergarten artists just discovered cave painting! We looked at cave paintings from Lascaux, France and talked about how the long-ago artists got ideas from what they see in the world around them. We used our drawings skills with lines and
shapes to create pictures of BIG wild animals! The student artists made "cave paint" by mixing crushed red, brown, black and yellow chalk with water. It was fun to paint with our hands! This lesson is part of our "Earth Art" unit.
