Archived Stories for Union County Public Schools
Where on Earth have you been?
First of all, a warm welcome back to all students, parents and staff of Union Elementary. We are so excited for another great school year!
Coming back to school saw lots of people chatting about what they had been up to during their summer vacation. Many people recollected amazing day trips to local places and some were regaling stories of journeys far and wide. We collected some information on where the staff of Union Elementary spent their vacation and we managed to cover 19 states and 4 countries over 2 continents! In the United States, we traveled as far north as Maine, as far south as Florida and as far west as Texas! The foreign countries that were visited were the Bahamas, the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. Tens of thousands of miles were traveled by our staff by foot, by car, by train, by bus, by plane and by ship!
Some amazing sights were seen and experiences that will last a lifetime were had. We are truly blessed to have been able to take these trips with our families and these experiences are ones that we will be able to share with our students to help enrich their learning.
We hope you all had a great summer vacation!
