IMPORTANT: If your student is involved in another program or is employed. Please be mindful of their potential covid-19 exposure. If another participant or anyone that works with your student comes down with covid-19, we ask that you take your student virtual for the week.
Even if you do not think your student was exposed, we ask that you react like they were. It is simply not worth having a possible covid outbreak before the holidays. PLEASE help us continue to be covid free here at Unless U! The students' health depends on it!
The health and wellbeing of our students and staff are our top priority, and The Board of Unless U has spent hours reading, consulting medical professionals, and discussing the Covid-19 vaccine at length. Since the vaccine is not yet readily available, the Board is not ready to make a final policy decision. However, we would like for everyone to know that it is highly likely that it will be necessary for anyone involved in any in-person programming at Unless U to get the Covid-19 Vaccine as soon as it becomes available to you. This will include staff, students, and volunteers. We will closely monitor the rollout of the vaccines and observe any issues before making a final decision.

This Week At Unless U - 1/12/20
Our Bible verse we learned this week is Matthew 4:10 "Worship the Lord your God and serve Him only." We learned about John the Baptist and the baptism and temptation of Jesus. The New Testament book we talked about this week is the Gospel of Mark.
In Math, we have been reviewing how to count coins. This week we counted nickels, dimes, and quarters. On Friday, we played a review game to test all the things we have learned!
We learned about Andrew Johnson, Ulysses Grant, and Rutherford Hayes this week in Mrs. Cathy's class. See if your student remembers which one got a speeding ticket for speeding on his horse while he was president! We also did a Kahoot review game on Abraham Lincoln.
We used clues to review more about the months of the year, as well as the seasons. It was challenging to describe each month with a single word.
Goals were set as we compared ourselves to some popular characters' positive traits to be the best we can be in 2021!
Our word of the month for January is "Responsibility." Responsibility means showing others you can be trusted with what is expected of you. This week we reviewed responsibilities we have at school and at home. We learned we have to show we can be trusted with little responsibilities before we can be trusted with larger responsibilities.
In News2You, we read about Jack Hanna and his love of animals. He has retired as the director of the Columbus Zoo after 42 years! We also read about some of the exhibits and animals at the zoo.
In science this week, we discussed the classification of animals. This is called taxonomy. We learned about 3 different categories: mammals, birds, and fish. We worked together to sort animal cards into the 3 groups.
