Kindergarten students participated in a Thanksgiving feast with their families earlier in the week. Prior to the feast, the students learned about Thanksgiving through a variety of activities. They discussed what life was like for Native Americans and Pilgrims and discussed the first Thanksgiving. Happy Thanksgiving from the staff and students of Union Furnace Elementary
Recently, students and staff enjoyed a day of nature, science, and hands on learning at Land Lab, which was held on the Presbyterian Farm. Rural Action provided many educational and fun activities, such as a discovery hike and an insect netting station. Many students expressed how much they enjoyed themselves and that they were looking forward to going back next year.
The annual fall carnival and auction was held recently at the school. Children played games while families participated in the auction part of the event. Lunch was also available to families to purchase. The money raised from the event goes back to the students in a variety of ways, including field trips and enrichment activities. Thanks to our PTO, volunteers, and the Union Furnace community for supporting out children.
