On Saturday, April 9, over 40 people in matching purple shirts gathered at Northfield Square Mall for the annual Walk-a-thon for Unity.
Over $1800 was raised as friends and families walked 4 miles.
Thanks to Woody’s Lawn, 4D Farms, County Line Growers,
VanDrunen Landscape, R & D Dandurand Farms, Momence Funeral
Chapel, and Mr.& Mrs. V. who graciously sponsored the Walk & allowed all of the money collected by students to go directly toward
benefiting the school.
Humpty Dumpty would have been proud of Mr. V’s science class! Designing parachutes using a
plastic bag, Styrofoam cup, 4 toothpicks, 2 rubber bands and cotton balls, each team of 2 succeeded in protecting their egg when dropped from the roof of
school-be assured, all safety procedures were carefully followed!
Luke Egeler, Renee Witvoet &
Jared Disselkoen were the 1st3rd place winners of this year’s
Spelling Bee. Congratulations!
Science projects completed by the 4th-8th graders were very well
done and covered a variety of topics including; testing the length of
time for differing brands of ice cream to melt, the effect of magnets on
plant growth, the best percentage of popped corn in differing brands,
the ph level of popular drinks, the strength of varied grocery bags and
the time it takes for various brands of cheese to mold. Three judges
the students
and rated
the projects.

Overheard during 4th-5th Spelling:
“Abbey, will you please use the
word descent in a sentence?”
Abbey: “Can you descent
that candle, it really stinks!”
Fun at the
Island Park
Bowling in St. Anne was a fun addition to the
Winter PE schedule this March!
The Jr. High students once again began their class trip volunteering at the Center of Hope food pantry in Kankakee. After lunch, it was on to
Saugatuck for a dune buggy ride and then to Hudsonville for dinner and fishing at Mr. V’s parents’ house. Everyone caught at least 1 fish, some
big and others not! The next day was spent at the VanAndel Museum and Fredrik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids, MI.
Congratulations to Luke who graduated on May 27 after
attending PreK-8th grade at Unity. His speech included
memories from his years including naptime in PreK (not
a pleasant memory), fish & hermit crabs in Mrs. Bruck’s
class, lots of homework from Mr. V, & Class Trips in Jr.
High. He thanked all of his teachers for preparing him
for High School at Illinois Lutheran in Crete & his parents for all of their help during these years. He finished
by stating “The reason I chose the class verse PhillipiSpecial speakers at Graduation included
