CF Patton Middle School Auditorium
Presented by FOCUS and the UCF Education Foundation

Come hear the results of the recent Pennsylvania Youth Survey of 6th, 8th,

alcohol, drugs, tobacco, mental health, and bullying. The survey provides

substances and behaviors. Jacquelyn Taylor, Executive Director of The COAD

survey results for both Unionville-Chadds Ford and Chester County students
as compared to PA statewide results. Small group discussions facilitated
by a variety of community professionals will follow and focus on
identifying these risky behaviors and the protective factors that guard
against them.

Spring is here and what does that mean? Time to get those flower beds and
gardens cleaned and ready for planting!
Scheduling is open for the UHS Quarterback Club spring mulch fundraiser!
You order your mulch, then have the UHS football players provide the
manual labor to spread it for you. Your mulch will be spread in 1-2
hours and your yard will look BEAUTIFUL! We can spread any amount of
mulch from 1 yard to 50 yards. A donation of $30/yard is suggested.
Every penny donated goes to support Unionville middle and high school
football programs.
Sign up BEFORE your mulch is delivered so we can assure that your mulch is
spread on the day you want it spread as our schedule fills quickly.
Gardens/flower beds should be cleared and ready to mulch before we get
there. And is it best to mulch BEFORE you plant new plantings.
Click the link below to sign up now as the schedule is filling quickly
with April already almost full! Mulch jobs are performed on a Saturday or
Sunday. Smaller jobs (5 yards or less) can often be done on weekdays.

If you are unable to access the link, send an email to to sign up.
