Union 6th/7th Grade Center News

  • #UBeThere - Plug In, Press Playy

    12.10.18

    Originally posted December 10, 2018 Orchestras overwhelm the senses when all sounds are present. Your attendance is instrumental. Without you, our power is greatly diminished.   Going to class every day is important. Ten unexcused absences cancel your performance.  Your sad solo becomes a symphony of none. Making beautiful music together is more than  just showing up . . . but it’s a great place to start. #UBeThere #ReptheU continue reading

  • #UBeThere - Show Up, Take Down

    11.26.18

    Originally posted November 26, 2018 Freestyle isn’t a successful strategy when it comes to attendance.  If you’re going to take it to the mat, you must consistently make contact, and that means being present.  A half-nelson won’t cut it.  We need you fully engaged. Going to class every day is important. Ten unexcused absences keep you off the mat, and you take the fall. Maybe it’s time for a reversal. A victory is more than just showing up . . . but it’s ... continue reading

  • #UBeThere - Daily Habit, Amazing Routine

    11.19.18

    Originally posted November 19, 2018 School spirit is a commitment. It requires that you be here, body and soul. Without a strong base, the pyramid falls apart. It’s the same in life.   Going to class every day is important. Ten unexcused absences cancel your performance. Absence is the spirit-killer.  A crowd-pleasing routine is more than just showing up . . .  but it’s a great place to start. #UBeThere #ReptheU continue reading

  • #UBeThere - In Class, Corps Value

    11.08.18

    Originally posted November 8, 2018 Not showing up for class is behavior unbefitting an officer. You need determination and grit to have a successful life and career in the reserved armed forces – and that means being there. Going to class every day is important. Ten unexcused absences keep you out of JROTC. A successful commission is more than just showing up . . . but it’s a great place to start. #UBeThere #ReptheU continue reading

  • #UBeThere - Sharp Focus, Grand Slam

    10.24.18

    Originally posted October 24, 2018 When it’s your turn at bat, you’ve got to keep your eye on the ball.  The bases are loaded with opportunities, but victory only comes if you’re in the game.  If you build it, success will come. Going to class every day is important. Ten unexcused absences not only kills your batting average — you’re stuck in the dugout. MVP isn’t earned just by getting your name on the roster . . . but it’s a great place to start. ... continue reading

  • #UBeThere - Show Up, Suit Up

    10.15.18

    Originally posted October 15, 2018 Hoops is not all lay-ups and free throws.  It requires perseverance and commitment, and that means being there. Going to class every day is important. Ten unexcused absences, and it’s an intentional foul that may bench you.  State championships aren’t won just by showing up . . . but it’s a great place to start. #UBeThere #ReptheU continue reading

  • #UBeThere - Tune In, March On

    10.12.18

    Originally posted October 12, 2018 When you’re not here, the music STOPS.  It’s not just a sad song, it’s NO SONG. Going to class every day is important. Ten unexcused absences cancel your performance. It’s the sound of silence.  A knock-out performance is more than just showing up . . .  but it’s a great place to start. #UBeThere #ReptheU continue reading
