LESSONS IN LIVING:


The virtue of the week is Love.  

The thought we are focusing on is:

“Love is an endless ocean, with no beginning or end.”

~Rumi

Special Olympics.  On Tuesday, Mr. Richard Fleming and three of his most decorated athletes came to talk to our 6th grade students about the Special Olympics Summer Games that will be taking place on March 3rd.  Builders Club students will be volunteering at the games at Dwyer High School starting at 8 a.m.  Many thanks to Mr. Fleming and the Special Olympics for allowing Unity School to participate in their mission of transforming lives through the joy of sport!  


Community Greening. Thursday morning, our 8th grade students went to Lakeview park to meet with Mr. Matt Shipley, co-founder of Community Greening and a former Unity student.  Mr. Shipley spoke to our students about investing in our green spaces to keep them clean and green for people and nature.  

Forgotten Soldiers Outreach.  February 19th through March 16th, the Builder’s Club will be collecting donations for the Forgotten Soldiers Outreach, Inc.  We would like to thank Vietnam Veteran TSgt Michael Coleman (ret) for speaking to our 6th grade students on Tuesday.  TSgt Coleman imparted the importance of supporting and sending encouragement to our deployed military service members.  Below are items most needed in the soldier’s “We Care” packages.



Community Food Drive.  Throughout the month of February, third grade 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.  Fourth grade will be collecting starting in March.

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.  


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!
