The Unity West Rockets T-shirt Design Contest Is Back!  Each year, the PTO purchases t-shirts for all students and staff to wear for their field trip as well as Fun Day.  These shirts are also given to the registered runners in the annual 5K. 

If your child is interested in entering a design for the t-shirt, they can get an entry form from Ms. Hanners.  Some important things to remember:

  • The words Unity West and 2020 must be incorporated somewhere in the design.  

  • Students should use pencil/pen for their entry. The darker the student writes, the better, as we must scan these for transfer to the t-shirts.  

  •  All designs must fit on the entry form.  

  • Encourage your child to not use any licensed characters/names in their design as those entries will not be eligible.  

  • All design forms must be submitted by Monday, March 9.  Late entries cannot be accepted.


Casey’s Rewards:  We’re excited to share that our school is participating in Cash for Classrooms, part of Casey’s Rewards. This opens up Unity West to new funding opportunities to help improve learning environments for students. The best part? Donations don’t come out of your own pocket. When you buy from Casey’s and use their rewards program you can simply turn your points into a donation to our school. Help Unity West make the most of this program and learn more at   

Food Pantry: The St. Patrick’s Church Parish Hall Food Pantry is now open.  Please click here for more information.
