Happy New Year!  We hope you had a wonderful winter break!  For those who participated in the Winter Challenge sponsored by the Green Machine, please make sure you turn in your forms by Friday.  

 

5 Essentials Survey - Please take about 5 minutes to complete the 5 Essentials Survey for Unity West.  The survey gathers data related to five indicators that can predict important student outcomes, including improved attendance and larger test score gains. If at least 20 percent of Unity West parents complete this survey, a parent supplement report will also be generated.

 Please visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/ to take the parent survey.  

 

January Lunch Menu - Please click here for the January Lunch Menu.

 

Student Illness- If your student is experiencing flu-like symptoms (fever, body aches, chills, headache, sore throat) please keep them home for at least 24 hours.  Please be sure to call the office if your student will be kept home.
