Fun Day - May 28: Fun Day for Unity West students is Tuesday, May 28.

  • Please note: Fun Day is a traditional school day, so only adults who are volunteering will be allowed on school premises after the morning awards assembly.  Volunteers will be asked to sign in and sign out after their volunteering duties are complete.  This precaution is for the safety of our students.

  • On that day, please have your child wear the Unity West t-shirt they received recently or a shirt of the same color so that children in each grade are easy to spot.  The t-shirt colors as well as the schedule for when each grade will be participating in the various activities are listed here.

  • If you are interested in volunteering, please click here to see the opportunities and to sign up.  We will need lots of volunteers in order to make this event a success. When signing up, be sure to include all requested information. The school will be providing sack lunches for volunteers. If you would like one for yourself, please type "Yes" in the dedicated area so we can get those ordered in advance.

  • Large bag of Skittles, boxes of snack cakes, sidewalk chalk, antibacterial face/hand wipes, white washcloths, and packing tape are also needed for the event.  If you would like to donate these items, simply drop them off in the office by the end of the day on Friday, May 24.
