Portraits now will be taken on May 21st only.  For $150 (retail value $250), families will get a 30 minute photography session, with multiple poses, and a $30 print/digital download credit. UE PTO will receive a portion of each sitting fee. Perfect timing for First Communion, Graduation and Mother's Day portraits.

We will also offer a deluxe package for the spring! For $350, Jordan will meet your family at Longwood Gardens for a 90 minute session, with multiple poses and locations, and a $100 print/digital download credit. You will be responsible for your gardens admission, and have the flexibility to choose a date and time that works for you. Mention UE PTO for this special offer, and to have a portion of your sitting fee go to the UE PTO.

UE Birthday Book Club

You're invited to join the Unionville Elementary School Birthday Book Club (BBC)!

It's an opportunity for your child to celebrate his or her big day by giving a gift of reading to our school and to support our library by adding a book chosen from a carefully selected book list.

You can also donate a book to the BBC in honor of another child's birthday (instead of buying a gift, gift a book in their honor!), or for other special occasions in your child's life. It is the gift that keeps on giving for many years! Please e-mail Mrs. Langdon for any book-related questions and e-mail Sunanda for any club-specific question.

Please click here for more information and to get started!
