Dear Unionville Elementary School Families
Welcome back to another great year at UE.
Please join us on Friday, September 20th at 1:00 PM for our first PTO
We look forward to seeing familiar faces and welcoming new members. Please
note the time of the meeting. This meeting will take place at 1:00 PM in
the SGI room. It will be a great meeting to start the school year.
In addition to general PTO business, Mr. Beaver will be presenting the
results of the Olweus Bullying Survey. You will not want to miss hearing

hearing about all the great things planned for the school year. See you

The UEPTO is planning many wonderful projects and enrichment activities to
benefit our children this school year. Your support and participation is
needed to make these a success. There are many opportunities to volunteer
and any amount of time is greatly appreciated. This is a great way to have
fun, meet new people and interact with your children, their classmates and

This year, we will be asking volunteers to sign up for opportunities by
using SignUp Genius. Please visit the following address to sign up for the
activities you are interested in helping with:

Volunteers will be required to sign a volunteer contract and anyone who
provides direct services to students and may have unsupervised contact
with them, will be required to submit two background clearances. Please
visit the district website for more details and for the direct links to
the background checks.
Thanks in advance for volunteering your time.

UE Library Volunteers Needed!
The UE Library is in need of volunteers for the upcoming school year.
Volunteers will assist with shelving returned books, maintaining
bookshelves, assisting students in finding books, processing of new books
into the library, and occasional light clerical work.
Volunteers can choose a two-hour shift, weekly or biweekly. This is a
year-long commitment.
If you are interested in helping, please return the volunteer form (in the
September backpack express on the PTO website) to Tracy Knox, UEPTO

Please be on the lookout for your summer mailing that will include
information on the 2013-2014 UEPTO BOOSTER DRIVE brochure.
Providing a place where students can learn, explore, thrive and feel like
they belong is a mission of the UEPTO, but it takes the participation of
every parent to be successful. We are looking for 100% participation in
our booster drive and are hopeful that each family will make a tax
deductible donation to support the academic, artistic and social programs
the UEPTO will sponsor this year. 100% of your donation will go directly
to support Unionville Elementary school programs and enrichment. Checks
should be made out to UEPTO and sent via mail/backpack express
by 9/27/13 in an envelope marked "Booster Drive".
If you have any questions regarding the booster drive please contact
Jennifer Hall -[ mailto:jenhallmomof3@gmail.com ]jenhallmomof3@gmail.com.
