The safety of our students and staff is a priority for the East Union Schools. We are aware of incidents at districts across the state of individual students and parents receiving anonymous messages threatening the safety and security of students. At this time no threats to our students, staff or buildings have been reported. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the district office.
The East Union SIAC will be meeting later this month to begin our work for the year. Our focus will be reviewing the district Vision, Mission and Student Goals as well as developing a community needs survey. This is something the Iowa Department of Education requires school districts across the state to do every 5 years. If you are interested in being a part of this group, YOU ARE INVITED! Meeting agendas will be structured to last 90 minutes or less and we will met a minimum of 4 times on the days and times designated. Be a part of the progress of the East Union Schools!
Certification for enrollment is 10/15. We've checked and double checked our end of things and as of Friday end of the day we were showing an increased enrollment of .3 students. Obviously that isn't a staggering amount of new students, however, in the case of East Union this small increase is a positive one. Last year we lost a significant number of students, but many were open enrolled students who were already attending another school. Here's what the summary comparison between last year and this year look like:
As all enrollments are finalized we may see some changes in these numbers but they should be very minimal.
This will be a busy week for East Union Activities. Cross Country and Volleyball both begin their tournament trails. Cross Country will visit Mount Ayr on Thursday, while the Volleyball squad will host Murray on Tuesday night. Friday will be our final football game and we will recognize our Seniors participating in Band, Cheerleading, Cross Country and Football before the game. We also are designating Friday night as a "Pink Out" night, in honor of Breast Cancer awareness. Some great opportunities to catch our Eagles in action!
