Unionville Elementary 2013 Art in Action
UE's Art in Action program kicks off this coming Friday, January 25 at
10:30 a.m. with a short talk by local artist Lele Galer in the SGI room at
Unionville Elementary. Art in Action gives our children a deeper knowledge

in K through 5th. UE's Art in Action will take place this year in February

then pass that on to our kids. Refreshments served and small children are
welcome. Questions, contact Amy Kramer @
