What is S.T.E.A.M.?
Union Elementary School District is a Kids at Hope school, which means we are committed to the belief, principles, and practices that support the success of all children, No Exceptions!
To achieve our vision, we are creating a community in which all adults see themselves as Treasure Hunters and all children learn to be Time Travelers. Treasure Hunters are caring adults who search for the skills, talents, and intelligence in all children and youth. Time Travel is the learned capacity to envision one’s future at life's four major destinations: Home and Family; Education and Career; Community and Service; and Hobbies and Recreation, then return to the present and prepare for the journey. We call that HOPE.
For more information, please contact your student’s school or visit the Kids at Hope website.
Mr. Rick Miller, founder of Kids at Hope and Chief Treasure Hunter, visited our district. He thoroughly enjoyed touring classes and visiting with our students and teachers. He spoke with the students and saw that they are Kids at Hope believers!
