Celebration Book Program

Would you like to celebrate your child's birthday, a special achievement or
a loved one ? Perhaps you'd like to celebrate a Unionville Elementary
Alumni on the 90th birthday of Unionville Elementary ? A wonderful way to
do this is to consider a book donation to the Unionville Elementary School
library. Information on the Celebration Book Program will be coming home
shortly in a flyer with your child and can be found in the latest online
weekly communications packet (Backpack Express). See how you can make a
special gift to the Unionville Elementary School library. For more
information or details about the program please contact Gina Fioravanti
(Logan's mom) at

Don't forget to order your child's SQUARE ONE ART! This is a great
opportunity to buy holiday gifts for family remembers. Products will
arrive the 1st week of December in time for the holidays!

Orders are due MONDAY - November 4.

This year on-line ordering makes ordering products even easier. Just go
to and enter your child's unique access code (located
on the papers sent home) to bring up his/her artwork. You can then select
the items you would like their artwork on and purchase by direct deposit
from a checking account or use a credit card.

If you do not have access to the internet or would prefer not to use
on-line ordering, you may still send in your check and paper order form by
Monday Nov. 4 through your child's backpack in an envelope marked "Square
One Art".

Questions - contact Jennifer Hall – or Kristin

Dear UE Families:

We are looking for 1 volunteer from each grade to help run the mileage club
a recess program. This will take about 10 minutes, 1 day a week and the
same weekday each week. The mileage club is a classroom "race" against all
the Buddy Class's in the school to see what class can make it across the
United States first. It is going to be a fun school wide competition!!

Students will wear a pedometer during recess 1 day a week, that will
measure the number of steps they took during recess. After recess they will
write down their steps on a poster hanging up in their classroom. We need
one volunteer from each grade to add up all the steps the students took for
each classroom during recess. This volunteer will then enter the total
classroom steps into a shared spreadsheet online.

There will be a bulletin board in the school that will have a map of the
United States and all of the buddy classes will be on it. Each week the
class step totals will be converted into miles and the bulletin board will
be updated to show the race across the US.

The race across the US is going to be a lot of fun and will encourage all
the students in the school to be more active during recess. We are looking
for 1 person for each grade to spend 10 minutes 1 day a week to add up the
total steps for each class in the grade and enter it into an online

Thank You for considering this volunteer opportunity. Please contact Lauren
Falini at to volunteer.
