WE HAVE SOME GREAT NEWS TO SHARE!
Union Day School has been selected as the top award winner in Charlotte Magazine’s 2021 “Best of the Best” issue, published annually to recognize the best Charlotte area’s businesses, schools, and non-profits!
Union Day School earned first place honors in the category of Best Public/Charter School.
UDS won second place in the same “Best of the Best” category in 2020.
Katy Bawin, a parent of a Union Day student, said that in a year of so many unknowns, UDS has exceeded her expectations.
“Our children are receiving the same exact curriculum as Charlotte’s top private schools in a small community setting. The dedication of the teachers and high quality of the staff is unparalleled.”

2020 UDS VIRTUAL TURKEY TROT
November 18, 19 & 20th
Thank you so so much to everyone who participated this year to make Turkey Trot an amazing success!
You raised $32,744!
That’s $7744 over our Goal! Wow, just WOW! 
We would like to thank everyone who made this event possible.
First, none of this would have happened if it were not for Lani Koontz & Raelin Morgan. Seriously. Best Fundraising Chairs we could have asked for! 
Thank you Coach King and Coach Pullen for turning the Turkey Trot into your class’s curriculum this week and making it safe for every in-class learner and fun for every remote learner. Our partnership on this made it WORK!!
And we so appreciate our volunteers who came out to assist with lap counting. Lani, Marsha Thomas, Hawks Jolley, Amy Shaw, Penny Eanes, Erin Swint, Gregory Hendler, Sarah Brown, Jeremy Viele and Christine McCall! You were all a big help to Coach and I hope you enjoyed your time outside with our UDS kiddos.
Thank you to our sponsors! Impact 1 Allstars SOUTH, Charlotte Running Co., Kate’s Skate, Hungry Howie’s Pizza & TCBY. UDS Loves our community partners! Show them some support when you can and tell them THANK YOU FROM UDS!
