DIVERSITY

At Union Cong, we believe that our separate heritages, beliefs, and choices of expression help to define us as individuals and that our commitment to learning about one another and the larger world unites us as a community.

We recognize and respect the fact that diversity exists in the languages we speak, the colors of our skin, our genders, ages, and sexual orientations, the traditions we observe, the configurations of our families, the financial and educational resources in our families. 

All are welcome, join us.


FAMILY INVOLVEMENT

Families are encouraged and welcomed in our classrooms to share talents, holiday traditions, cooking, stories, or support in a class project. The school is enriched by our families and the community. Through generous fundraising activities our parents support the following branches of our strategic plan: Technology and Equipment, Professional Development and need based Financial Assistance. Each class has 2 class parents that support the teachers.


NATURE

Our Children’s Garden serves as an outdoor classroom where children are free to observe, inquire, and deeply explore their understanding of the world around them.
