The Unity Scoop at 432! Week of January 14th
Good day, families of Unity Junior High!
I hope that the week is treating you well despite the frigid temperatures outside. Know that we are in this together!
I’m going to jump right into it today with 7 important announcements in this week’s edition of the Scoop.
This Week’s Top 7:
- Congrats to our Students on Completing their ELA Mock Exams Today – Families, please provide a big congrats and a hug to your child for putting in 100% effort on their ELA mock exams and for showing off all that they have learned over the course of the year thus far as young readers and writers!
- Calendar Clarification, January 18th is a Full Day of School – An earlier version of our school calendar had listed this coming Friday as a half day of school. We, in fact, have a full day of the school on the 18th. See an up-to-date version of the calendar attached. Our apologies for the oversight.
