Kindergarten kids are working on a song!We have been writing a song with artist in residence, Paul Boffa. Paul is a local musician, storyteller and songwriter. Sometimes Mr. Boffa is also a substitute teacher at UES.
Mr. Boffa came to class to help kindergarten kids think about the words that might describe how animals move. He then went to each classroom to help brainstorm words for a group song.
Then Mr. Boffa returned with his guitar to share the song with the class, and begin practicing.

Union Elementary School invites the entire Montpelier community to celebrate the 75th anniversary of our school building! Please join us for an evening lantern procession on Wednesday, February 18th.
Dear Families, ,
Our second semester of ECO classes is starts next week. Our first session will be next WEDNESDAY, then we will return to Thursdays for the rest of the semester.
We plan on having two classes go to Harrison Field from about 12:15-2:30 on Thursdays. You will find the semester schedule listed below. In May, we will celebrate winter together- ALL Classes!
Parent volunteers help make our ECO days run smoothly. If you are interested in helping out with any of these days, please let me know. If you do plan to volunteer, we ask that you leave younger siblings at home so that your total focus is on the kindergarten kids. Thank you for understanding!
We hope you can join us on one or more of these days.
