Union Furnace Elementary will be conducting a safety drill tomorrow morning, Saturday, August 18th. Local law enforcement and other first responder agencies will be involved. This training allows our district, and other agencies, to improve communication and safety planning.
Our final week of school was filled with laughter, fun, and family. Students participated in many outdoor activities, such as water games and soccer with a giant soccer ball. They were also able to enjoy face painting, obstacle courses and Kona Ice. Thanks to our volunteers, many of which were parents, and our PTO for making this happen. It was certainly a great way to wrap up the school year.
Mr. Simon Mills, Physical Education Teacher, provided students and staff with an enjoyable day filled with many activities for field day. Throughout the day students were able to participate in many stations, including obstacle courses, hockey, riding scooters and several water games. Parent volunteers, as well as Logan High school students, helped lead the stations. It was a great day for all involved.
Union Furnace Elementary students and their families participated in an educational and fun Science night. Students rotated to different stations throughout the building. Some of the highlights from the station included learning about bats, playing an animals identification game, and making their own mad scientist. Families were also served a spaghetti dinner and students left with a book to add to their personal libraries at home. It was a great evening!
Dr. Seuss was the center of the activities and themes that the students and staff participated in throughout the week to celebrate Read Across America. Whether students were eating green eggs and ham, drawing their favorite Dr. Seuss character or wearing their pajamas to school for one of our theme days, the students and staff members had a great time combining literacy with laughter and art.
The Kindergarten students at Union Furnace Elementary celebrated their 100th day of school today. Rita Reis and Gretchen McKenzie, our Kindergarten teachers, created engaging lessons and activities for their students. All of the activities incorporated the number 100 and allowed students to work together in pairs and in small groups. One fun lesson allowed the students to create a necklace using 100 fruit loops! Learning is always fun at Union Furnace Elementary!
The Family Literacy night scheduled for Tuesday, February 6, 2018 is being cancelled. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and once a new date is selected for our literacy night, we will share the information with our families. Thanks for understanding and for your continued support of our school.
The "reading sheriff" made another visit to the school today. From time to time, he stops in each of the classrooms to learn about the types of books students are reading and to see the literacy activities that the students are participating in during class. Students and staff never know when he may show up, but are always happy to see him. Many students say he resembles Mr. Nott, the principal. Hmmm... It is always a fun time for the reading sheriff when he visits the classrooms and sees...
