2023 BLUE RIBBON Announcement Video (33:06) - Union Center shows up at 13:25 mark! https://nationalblueribbonschools.ed.gov/2023-announcement/
Union Center families & UTSC, It brings me immense joy to announce that Union Center Elementary School has been recognized and designated an Exemplary High Performing National Blue Ribbon School for 2023! Union Center is only 1 of 11 schools in all of Indiana to receive this prestigious award. National Blue Ribbon Schools serve as models of effective school practices for state and district educators and other schools throughout the entire United States. A National Blue Ribbon School flag gracing a school's entryway is a widely recognized symbol of exemplary teaching and learning. Our little UCE village is doing wonderful things for the students in this building and this community. This great feat would not be possible without the love and dedication we have for each and everyone one of our students. From our superstar bus drivers, to the rock star kitchen staff, the unshakable front office, kind nurse, "do it all" counselor, all our amazing teachers, talented learning loss specialists, spectacular aides, supportive parents, generous volunteers, knowledgeable coaches, passionate ECA sponsors, wonderful PTO, hard-working students, protective resource officers, resourceful fire department, versatile custodians, caring school board, steadfast central office and all other UTSC stakeholders, it truly takes a village! This extremely proud principal is happy to report that Union Center has been recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School! Congratulations to us all!
