nsuring that each and every student graduates from Union High School prepared for college and/or career is a task that will involve parents and every educator at all grade levels. This worthy goal –100% graduation rate AND 100% college/career readiness – is the new rallying cry for Union Public Schools. It will organize our efforts to personalize education for all students and engage them in meaningful learning. It will focus teacher efforts on raising expectations, tracking student progress, and using teaching strategies that yield success for all students. The benefits of post-secondary education – college/military/vocational training – are

undisputable. In a society that values 21st-century skills of problem solving, communication, higher order thinking, and technology prowess, today’s students need to rethink how education affects their future. More than 90% of the next generation’s jobs Cathy Burden, Ph.D. will require higher Superintendent education, so a high school diploma can no longer be thought of as an end-point. All Union students – with the involvement of their parents – need to be planning for college early so their school performance leads in that direction. Even students with limited financial resources can take advantage of the Oklahoma Promise scholarship or TCC’s Tulsa Achieves to pursue college. Union’s commitment to 100% graduation and 100% college participation will be aided by our Union Collegiate Academy focus at the High School. Teachers at the Intermediate and High School will be working in committees to restructure the high school experience to encourage maximum Advanced Placement participation, dual high school and college credit, virtual learning, and service learning career apprenticeships. As we rethink our secondary program, teachers at all grade levels will explore what they can do to help students plan for continuing their education and help to educate parents about the steps involved in sending their children to college.

around the district Planning for End-of-Year and Summer School The last day of school is Monday, May 24, but there are lots of things to look forward to before school closes. Teacher Appreciation Week marks the first full week of May followed by Nurses Week. AP exams also take place this month; a schedule is posted on the High School web page at www.unionps.org.

All-day summer school will be held at Boevers, Briarglen, and McAuliffe. Both Grove and Jefferson students will attend classes at Jefferson; and Rosa Parks will host Clark and Rosa Parks students. It will be 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., June 1-28. Summer school for grades 9-12 runs 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. June 7-25 and July 6-23. The new school year will begin on Friday, August 20.

Hooray For Bus Drivers! The PTA Council honored bus drivers for their hard work and commitment to safely transport students to and from school. Council president Stephanie Goekeler said they chose the theme, “Bus Drivers Rock,” to let the transportation staff know how much they are appreciated. During a special recognition breakfast at the UMAC, drivers enjoyed a full buffet, door prizes, and praise from many administrators including Assistant Superintendent for Support Services Jarod Mendenhall and Director of Transportation Gary Greenhill. Pictured (clockwise) are Bill Dodd (green shirt), Randy Collinson, Andersen Principal Larry Williams, Darnaby Principal Tom Carson, Jim Howard, Edward Jones, Mary Starr, and Sara Rosser.

Geoffrey Canada Tours Union Geoffrey Canada, founder of the Harlem Children’s Zone, talks to Janna Hamilton’s first grade class at Rosa Parks Elementary during a whirlwind tour in Tulsa to accept the 2010 Brock International Prize in Education. He was nominated for the honor by Superintendent Dr. Cathy Burden (second from right). During his tour of Rosa Parks, Canada said he was impressed with how engaged the students were and rated Union’s Community Schools model and its Early Childhood Center as among the best he’s seen throughout the country. Canada later gave a public speech at the UMAC on the importance of taking local responsibility in education, and he shared his ideas and philosophies at an education symposium hosted by Oklahoma State University-Tulsa where he accepted the prize.
