Dear Unionville Elementary School Families
~Welcome back to another great year at UE.

In addition to general PTO business, Mr. Beaver will be presenting the

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

The UEPTO is honored once again to be asked to work with the Unionville
Community Fair and co Sponsor the ever popular Cow Pie Bingo Ticket

Your ticket purchase helps support not only our school but several Chester
County organizations. A portion of the Cow Pie Bingo ticket sales will go
to support Chester County Food Bank, The Barn at Springbrook Farm, The
Unionville Community Scholarship Fund, Po Mar Lin Fire Company, Longwood
Fire Company and the fair itself so we can continue to enjoy the fair
without entrance fees.~

As partners in this program we are asking that every UE family sell at
least 5 tickets to support this cause, our school and these wonderful
organizations that the Unionville Community Fair supports!~

Back-to-school is in full swing at Young Rembrandts, as we present drawing
lessons that encompass a fascinating world of color, pattern, and design.
Students will strengthen their marker rendering skills as they draw a
detailed gumball machine. A drawing of a sandwich will make them hunger
for more art. We'll travel back in time to the age of the pharaohs as we
illustrate a decorative, Egyptian headdress. An illustration celebrating
the fall season will introduce our colorists to warm and cool colors. All
this and more await your child at Unionville Elementary School on Tuesdays
from 3:30-4:30pm for a 6-week program for only $90. ~Enroll at [
