With all the changes that we face this year as a result of COVID-19, and finding a new sense of normalcy, we are very proud of our students and how they are adjusting. Union would like to celebrate our students’ successes as they navigate through these unprecedented times. We feel that, with help from our community, we can make a difference in the lives of our students by instilling good values, hard work, and a sense of accomplishment.
As such, we are asking for donations to raise money for our end of the semester, and end of the year, drawings in which we will present students with prizes for a job well done. Students can earn tickets for these drawings throughout the school year in several ways: by earning an “Academic Incentive Slip” for any academic success (a good grade on a test, improvements in a struggling class, completion of homework, participation, or anything else our staff deems worthy of recognition), and by earning a “R.A.K Award” for a “random act of kindness” (any helpful or thoughtful act by a student that demonstrates leadership and/or compassion for others). These slips will be awarded to students by staff members, collected, and put in a drawing for prizes at the culmination of each semester.
We feel that it is imperative to instill a sense of thoughtfulness in our students for something greater than themselves. In order to do so, we are asking for assistance to raise funds for prizes. Our thoughts regarding the prizes include, but are not limited to, electronics, Union swag/apparel, school supplies, catered lunches, and more!
