100th Day of School!

Tuesday, January 26th

Don’t forget to dress OLD!

It’s Yearbook Time! And we need YOUR HELP! We don’t have to tell you that putting together this year’s YEARBOOK will be a challenge. We have not had the events and normal campus interaction to provide us with memorable photo opportunities. So we need YOUR photos!!
We want to see your kiddo’s doing their remote learning, outdoor activities, favorite vacation pics, funny interactions with technology, co-op group learning, pictures of artwork, doing PE outside, dress-up days and everyone in their UDS Spirit Wear! Send them all.
Please send your highest resolution pictures to yearbook@uniondaypa.com
Please rename your pictures with one of the following hashtags followed by a number. For instance, if I have a picture of my child with their teacher, I would name it #Bientz1 and if I have 2 pictures from Turkey Trot, I’d name them #TurkeyTrot1 and #TurkeyTrot2. If I have a picture of my child finishing an art project, I’d name it #Art1. Please don’t let the hashtags discourage you though. If you are sending pics straight from your phone, we will try to figure out where they go and will email you back with any questions.

PLEASE DO NOT SEND FILTERED PICTURES! Snapchat and Instagram filters are cute, just not for the yearbook.
If you have any questions, please email Kimberly Roth at  yearbook@uniondaypa.com
Thank you! We appreciate your timely response as our deadline to get the yearbook ready is closing in!


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!
