All call for 4:00 pm today! Our Vision: By inspiring greatness, all students will realize their worth and potential. Our Mission: At Union-Scioto School District, students will learn, lead and make a difference. Our Motto: Today’s Learners, Tomorrow’s Leaders. I would like to compliment our students, families, and staff for their continued effort and diligence to minimize covid cases and quarantines. Our district has not experienced the number of cases or quarantines as other districts in our county and surrounding counties. Continue to do your best to social distance during school, events, and activities. Our local health department encourages everyone to wear a mask as much as possible. We continue to offer masks to any student needing one. Thank you once again for keeping our students safe and in school. We can and will do this!! Family sport passes are available at the administration office. See Teresa Brown if interested. Family pass is $200 for family, $125 for single adult, and $75 for single student. All ticket prices are $5 with exception of $3 dollars for Senior Citizens. A special thanks to our administrative and central office staff! We appreciate each of you for your contribution to our students, families, and school district. Very appreciative of their dedication, work ethic, and commitment to our students, staff, and school district. Thank you! Parent Survey has been shared on each building’s Facebook page as well as our district website under the news section. for parents to complete. The information provided will be used in future planning of resources and services for students, staff and families. If you complete the survey you can enter a drawing for one of five $50 Walmart gift cards. If your child rides a school bus and it is running late, please check our district website under the live feed and any of our Facebook pages as we will not always have the ability to make an all-call. Typically, if the bus is late it will be approximately 15-25 minutes and if parents become concerned, please check our live feed and Facebook pages first. Picture days at the elementary school are scheduled for Friday, September 24 for students in kindergarten - 5th grade and preschool students will be on Monday, September 27. Any middle or high school student interested in wrestling there are open mats every Wednesday from 6-7:30pm in our wrestling facility. All students are welcome to participate. Any student in grades 4-12 interested in orchestra please contact Mr. Jonathan Thorne at jthorne@gotanks.org. It is a wonderful opportunity for our students! Congratulations to Mrs. Domo, 5th grade teachers and current 6th grade students that participated in science fair last school year for once again earning the Governor’s Thomas Edison Award for Excellence in STEM Education for Unioto Elementary! So proud. Hard work works!! Congratulations to our band students and staff for winning the “Battle of the Bands” this year. As always, their performance was very impressive! Nice to see some of our football players supporting our band by attending the competition. Congratulations to our boys cross country team for winning the McGowan Invitation! 1st Place!! Living up to their #1 state ranking!! Finish stronger than you start!! So impressed with our cross country program this year and previous years consistently competing at the state level every year! I would like to commend our student section for supporting our teams and coaches by demonstrating sportsmanship consistently at our events. Furthermore, I am very appreciative of your efforts to assist with cleaning up afterwards. As I have said before, one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself is responsibility. It is a gift that keeps on giving to yourself and to others. Thank you student section for being a class act! In my last all-call I mentioned the value in reading great books and the ability to choose your peers. It is worth repeating! Libraries are full of great books from great authors. You can enter into their perspectives, into their worlds, learn new concepts, and engage in self improvement through others by absorbing their knowledge and applying it to your life. There is real utility in reading great books. And yes, you can actually pick your peers. Pick wisely with the books you read. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of unbelievable, creative, highly perceptive and intelligent authors. You can learn from their lives and benefit from their writings and elevate yourself to a different level! Read. Read great books! 3 days til Monday!! Carry your own weather!! Hard work works!! Audit your circle!! Go Tanks!!

I wanted to inform parents we had a modified lockdown at the high school this morning and contacted law enforcement to assist with a potential safety concern. The situation has been resolved and we appreciate the responsiveness and assistance of the law enforcement. Fortunately, there was no safety issue or danger for our students or staff at any time. Thank you.

Labor Day 2021
All call for 4:00 pm today! Our Vision: By inspiring greatness, all students will realize their worth and potential. Our Mission: At Union-Scioto School District, students will learn, lead and make a difference. Our Motto: Today’s Learners, Tomorrow’s Leaders. A reminder to parents all announcements will continue to be posted on the Union-Scioto Local School District Facebook page and now on our district website under the “live feed” section. You can access our website at www.unioto.org. The first time you access our website you may have to refresh your browser. Family sport passes are available at the administration office. See Teresa Brown if interested. Family pass is $200 for family, $125 for single adult, and $75 for single student. All ticket prices are $5 with exception of $3 dollars for Senior Citizens. A special thanks to our support staff working in the offices, our clinics, our classrooms, and our cafeterias! We appreciate each of you for your contribution to our students, families, and school district. Also, a special thanks to our teaching staff for their continued efforts to provide meaningful lessons and influence our students to become tomorrow's leaders. It isn’t even up for debate of the need for more leaders in our communities. We all know this to be true. Thank you - Thank you!! No school this Monday, September 6 due to Labor Day. Students sometimes express their disappointment on these extended weekends. Missing school on a Monday is a real bummer and 4 days til Tuesday just doesn’t have the same ring to it as 3 days til Monday!! At any rate, students stay positive, enjoy the weekend, read a good book, watch an informative podcast, spend time with your family and friends, or at least at a minimum do something productive. Back to my suggestion to read a good book. The interesting thing about reading books is you can choose your peers. Right? The authors of the books you read. You can enter into their perspectives, into their worlds, learn new concepts, and engage in self improvement through others by absorbing their knowledge and applying it to your life. There is some real utility in reading good books. And yes, you can actually pick your peers. Pick wisely with the books you read. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of unbelievable, creative, highly perceptive and intelligent authors. You can learn from their lives and benefit from their writings and elevate yourself to a different level! Read. Read good books! Go Tanks!!

All call for 4:00 pm today! Our Vision: By inspiring greatness, all students will realize their worth and potential. Our Mission: At Union-Scioto School District, students will learn, lead and make a difference. Our Motto: Today’s Learners, Tomorrow’s Leaders. The Unioto High School choir has been invited to attend the Choirs of America Nationals Event in New York City this Spring. The choir will not only be adjudicated for a rating at the Aaron Copeland School of Music in Queens, they will also have the incredible opportunity to perform on stage at Carnegie Hall as a spotlight group during the Harmonic Convergence Concert. Sightseeing and unique New York cuisine experiences are also a part of the tour package. As with any trip, an expense is involved and it is big. With over sixty members, the choir needs to raise just over $100,000. Therefore, we need your help and support. If you would like to donate, please mail a check to: UMA P.O. Box 6052 Chillicothe, Ohio 45601 We appreciate every dollar! Don't forget to put a note in the envelope stating the funds are for choir. You could even write Attn: Choir on the envelope as well. Let's help these kids fulfill this once in a lifetime opportunity! Please note the district has not mandated masks; however, if students wear a mask and/or are vaccinated, they will not be subjected to quarantine per the Ross County Health Department guidelines. Encourage your child to social distance at least 3 feet as much as possible throughout the school day and at events and activities. A flowchart for quarantine after exposure will be shared on our Facebook page. A reminder when parking along our new paved area between the soccer and football fields please be careful not to run into the new fencing. The new paving created additional parking spaces for our families for pick ups and evening events. Please be mindful to not damage the fencing. Open enrollment applications need to be turned in as soon as possible. These forms need to be completed each school year. Latchkey parents, your latchkey payment for August was due before school started. Please make your payments ASAP. All future payments are due by the first of each month. We have several families on a waiting list. Preschool Parents - your first payment is due SEPT. 1st and by the first of each month through September. Congrats to our golf team for winning the SVC #2 match this week! Volleyball team was impressive in their victory last night. Our ladies soccer team had a shutout at home while our boys soccer ended with a tie. Excited for the beginning of our fall athletic season! Our first varsity football home game on our new natural turf (completed with donations - we are extremely grateful for the generosity to make this happen for our student-athletes and program) is this evening with a game time of 7:00pm and our cross country team competes on Saturday@Pickerton North at 8:00am and our first mountain bike team event is this weekend at John Bryant State Park in Yellow Springs, Ohio! Family passes are available at the administration office. See Teresa Brown if interested. Family pass is $200 for family, $125 for single adult, and $75 for single student. All ticket prices are $5 with exception of $3 dollars for Senior Citizens. A special thanks to our maintenance and custodial staff for all their hard work and dedication over the summer to prepare our campus and facilities to welcome our students and staff back to school. I would also like to express appreciation to our transportation department and bus drivers for their efforts for the beginning days of school transporting our students. They cover thousands of miles with our students throughout the school year and we are thankful for their commitment for their role in educating our students. More thanks and expressions of appreciation will be included in future announcements as we have so so many groups to be thankful for here at the U! Have a great weekend and yes, I and our students are so so thankful it is only 3 days til Monday!! Each and every student is in love with the beautiful Monday mornings with a full week of opportunities just waiting for them to capitalize on! Wouldn’t it be awesome if every day was a Monday?? Monday, Monday, a full week of nothing but Mondays!! Think about it…every day is a new beginning, a new opportunity, new challenge, a test of your attitude and focus on elevating yourself to that next level. An elevator that you get to choose which floor you want to go to next. Push that button!!! The doors will open!!! Take someone with you…that's leadership!! When you elevate yourself…you elevate others and there is nothing but good that comes from that for you, for your friends, for your family, and for your community and all you encounter. Imagine what this world would be like, just imagine if each of us pushed that button every single day! Monday, Monday, Monday…7 days a week…I think I am on to something here!!!! Go Tanks!!
