UNITY SCHOOL’S 2017-2018 ANNUAL FUND CAMPAIGN 9/28 – 11/30:

Don’t forget to make your tax deductible donation or pledge this week to the Annual Fund! Remember that contributions to the Annual Fund are necessary to balance the school’s operating budget, take care of campus needs and support/enhance our academic, athletic, music, drama, art, technology and the Lessons in Living program which benefit all our children. Contributions allow us to keep on the cutting edge of education by offering our teachers the opportunity for continued professional growth through attendance to workshops, seminars and conferences. Our foremost goal is 100% parent participation.  

Call Development & Events Director, Joy Lanza at
jlanza@unityschool.com or ext. 130 or on her cell 561-373-6315 to pay by phone or if you have any questions. Thank you for your continued support and love for Unity School.


LESSONS IN LIVING:

Angel Tree The season is upon us!  Many thanks to the kind volunteers that helped us assemble angels yesterday!  Angel Tree is nothing without its dedicated volunteers.    We are also accepting volunteers to work at the tree from 8:00-8:50 am, Nov. 28-Dec. 6 and to help with gift sorting and delivery on December 8.  Don’t miss out on this rewarding opportunity to serve those who desperately need it.   Please let us know if you are available to assist.  abevan@unityschool.com

Care Kids  We would like to sincerely thank Unity parent David Rutherford for speaking to our 5th grade Care Kids today.  After hearing Mr. Rutherford speak about the magnitude of service shown by our local first responders, our students wrote letters of gratitude and appreciation to Delray Beach Police, Fire Department, and paramedics.  We were delighted to have such a masterful speaker here to inspire our students.

Builder’s Club  We would like to show our appreciation to Rev. Laurie Durgan for speaking to our 8th grade students last week.  The Reverend discussed Sunshine House, a home for beautiful souls with developmentally different abilities.  Our 8th grade students will once again be supporting the Sunshine House for Angel Tree this year.

Veteran's Day Coin Drive  A huge thank you to all who donated!  We donated $330.00 to Wreaths Across America, an organization that honors those who have served our country and are no longer with us. December 13, 2008 was unanimously voted by the US Congress as “Wreaths Across America Day”.  This annual tribute serves to help us remember, honor and teach about our nation’s heroes.

Community Food Drive.  Throughout the months of November and December, middle school students and families are asked to bring in canned food and non-perishable items and place them in the collection container outside of their homerooms. Your generous donations are taken to the Caring Kitchen and will serve local families in need. Each grade is assigned one month where they will be encouraged to make non-perishable food donations each week. To see which month your children will be asked to donate food, check your Unity School calendar - it’s the first entry under the notes section on the right side of the calendar.

Shoes2You.   Shoes2You, Inc. was developed in 2013 by Joseph Rubsamen, a Unity School graduate, who was inspired to help provide shoes for people living in poverty.  Unity School accepts shoes for donation to Shoes2You, Inc. year round.  Please place any gently used shoes in the bin in front of the middle school office.  

Recycled Uniform Sale.  Our next sale will be on December 15 in the Events Office starting at 8:00 a.m. Getting a little short on uniforms?  Come and see what bargains we have for you! All proceeds go into the Lessons in Living Department’s events and activities.

 

The virtue of the week is Gratitude.  
The thought we are focusing on is:

“Gratitude is a powerful process for shifting your energy and bringing more of what you want into your life.  Be grateful for what you already have and you will attract more good things.”

 ~Rhonda Burn

TREE TO TRAY PROGRAM:
Do you or someone you know have fruit bearing trees in the yard?  Then be a part of Unity School’s exciting Tree to Tray program. Parents can drop off bags or boxes of local, organically grown fruits that come from your own families’ trees.  Unity’s Food Service Director, Lori Robbins, will be using the fruit from our trees, and turning it into delicious meals that end up on our children’s lunch trays.  So, those wonderful avocados that are filling your trees right now will be used to make fresh, homemade guacamole for taco day.  And the limes, oranges and lemons make wonderful, flavored water for our children and for family events at school.  Donating these items helps expose our children to food they may not normally eat.  Fresh food is a crucial part of our children’s health and provides the nutrients and energy they need to fully participate in all of the educational and enrichment activities here at Unity.   All fresh produce is welcome!  Each month we will feature the items that are seasonally harvested as a reminder to support this program.  Help us get your extra fruit off your trees and onto our children’s trays!
