Greetings to our wonderful Union Middle School Volunteers and Families:
Our district will be hosting a Helping Harvest Festival for our community at Dartmouth Middle School on Saturday, October 29th from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm. Dr. Andrews' message about the event was just sent out on Parent Square. It explains our desire to bring our schools together (for the first time ever) to celebrate our community while helping support some very worthy local causes. Along with providing a vaccination clinic, the event will offer our students and families fun activities, music, food trucks, caring messages, sock and food donations, and games. We hope you can stop by this free family-friendly event.
UMS Home and School Club plans to participate by hosting a small table and we will be collecting dry and canned non-perishable goods to donate for our Thanksgiving food drive including: canned beans, canned soup, canned pumpkin, canned cranberries, stuffing mix, boxes of instant mashed potatoes, boxes of Mac and Cheese, canned or boxed gravy, rice, etc. Please stop by the UMS HSC booth to make a donation.
