The annual student talent show is Friday night at 7:00pm. Please come out and enjoy all of the talented students that we have at Pleasant Union.
Saturday night we will have Family Skate Night at Jelly Beans in Wake Forest from 5:15pm – 7:00pm. Admission is $10.00 and includes skates, a slice of pizza or hotdog and a small drink. Parents and siblings are welcome.
Pleasant Union’s very own Keri Woronka is not only the Teacher of the Year for Pleasant Union, but now she is also one of the twelve finalists for the Teacher of the Year for Wake County. Her unwavering dedication to the academic and personal development of her students is not only visible to us, but it is also recognized by other professionals in the Wake County School System. You can find an article about the twelve finalists on the WCPSS website. Congratulations Keri! We are so proud of you!
Cultural Arts Night at Pleasant Union will be on Tuesday, April 30th. Kids Art Fair will begin at 5:30 and run until approximately 6:30 in the school cafeteria. Pleasant Union’s Panther Chorus will then perform beginning at 6:45.
Although there are some Kids Art staff that will be helping with the Art Fair we need volunteers to help set up, put pictures in frames, check people out, and to close down the show. If you can help please go to Volunteer Spot to sign up. Complete the requested information (email address, which is not shared will anyone, and the area you can help) and you’re all set.
We hope to see you there.
The Purple Panther Press March 2013 edition is now available. This months issue highlights Earth Day, student awards and accomplishments, an upcoming Parent Workshop and many, many more important events and school activities.

BRING BOOKS TO LIFE AT THE PARADE OF BOOKS ON MARCH 1ST
On March 1st PUE will bring back the Parade of Books. This is an opportunity for students to bring books to life by dressing-up as their favorite character from a book.
Costumes can be as simple as dressing all in red and making a head band with floppy red dog ears to become Clifford the Big Red Dog or as elaborate as donning a wizard’s costume and becoming Dumbledore. During the parade students should carry the book in which the character can be found. Costumes may be worn to school.
The parade will begin at 9:30 a.m. Parents are encouraged to watch the parade to cheer on the students and the joy of reading! Weather permitting the parade will go down the 2/3 hall to the back field.
