District Announcements

United Way Campaign

Once again, September will be a “Month of Giving” at Union Public Schools. We appreciate the generosity of Union students, families, teachers and staff as we raise funds for the 59 partner agencies of the Tulsa Area United Way. Thank you for joining in the fun as we support the United Way’s mission of uniting people and resources to improve lives and build a stronger community.

September is School Attendance Awareness Month

School spirit is a commitment. It requires that you be here, body and soul. Without a strong base, the pyramid falls apart. It’s the same in life. Going to class every day is important. Ten unexcused absences cancel your performance. Absence is the spirit-killer. A crowd-pleasing routine is more than just showing up . . . but it’s a great place to start. #UBeThere #ReptheU

New website

Union Public Schools has a new website! We are pleased to work with our new provider Gabbart Communications. While it is a brand-new website, we have purposely designed it to be familiar. So most items will be found in the places in which you are accustomed to finding them. We are continuing to refine the site and more features, such as video, are coming. If you have a comment, please email us.
