Tomorrow is Ugly Sweater Day. We are having a school wide ugly sweater day on Thursday, December 19. You can either pull an ugly sweater from the closet or create your own.
Friday is our Day Before Winter Break and Pajama Day! We will gather in the gym at 8:45 to hear the 5th grade chorus and sing some Christmas songs. Class parties will take place throughout the day, please check with your child’s teacher to confirm party times.
5 Essentials Survey - Please take about 5 minutes to complete the 5 Essentials Survey for Unity West. The survey gathers data related to five indicators that can predict important student outcomes, including improved attendance and larger test score gains. If at least 20 percent of Unity West parents complete this survey, a parent supplement report will also be generated. Please visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/ to take the parent survey. 4th and 5th grade students will be completing the student version of the survey over the next 2 weeks.
January Lunch Menu - Please click here for the January Lunch Menu.
