West Weekly

November 15, 2018


This month's PBIS celebration is Turkey Bowling.  In order to earn this celebration, students must earn strikes in their classroom.  The PBIS Cool Tool focus this month is "Respect the Tech." Each week there is a different Cool Tool reminding students the school expectations of computer and technology use.  As students demonstrate those expectations, they earn "strikes" for their class.


Our Green Machine, part of 5th grade student council focused on health and wellness, will be sponsoring our Thanksgiving Challenge again this year.  They are challenging all students to eat 2 vegetables and 1 fruit over the Thanksgiving break. Watch for more information next week.

Family Movie Night : Thanks to everyone who came out to the Family Movie Night on Friday.  We hope you had a great time!


Buffalo Wild Wing Fundraiser (11/19) : Give yourself a night off from cooking the Monday before Thanksgiving and support Unity West PTO!  On Monday, November 19, the Savoy Buffalo Wild Wings will donate 15% of all pre-taxed food sales. Just present the attached voucher between 11am and 11pm on the 19th!


AmazonSmile for Your Holiday Shopping : As you start your holiday shopping, consider using AmazonSmile to help out Unity West while you shop.  AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know. Same products, same prices, same service. The difference is that, when you make your purchases through this site, Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the charitable organization of your choice.

So how do you get started?  On your first visit to AmazonSmile (, select "Unity West Elementary PTO" as your charitable organization before you begin shopping.  AmazonSmile will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make will result in a donation.  It's that easy!


Music Boosters:  

Unity Music Boosters is looking for volunteers for All out A Capella.  This is the largest fundraiser for Unity Music Boosters and will be held Saturday, February 16, 2019.   This annual concert features some of the best collegiate A Capella talent in the area along with Unity's group Surreal Sound.  Our first committee meeting is Thursday, November 15, 2018 at 7pm at Unity High School Choir Room. We would love to see some new parents interested in music there to help us out!


Our organization provides support for ALL music in Unit 7 school district.  From Kindergarten through 12th grade. You do not have to have a child in high school music to help out!
