UES Chores

Hello Parents,
Unfortunately, we will not be partnering with Summit- UES Chorus this year. Union Community Connections is making lots of changes in staff, schedules and new programs. We are transitioning into a new phase of quality after school programming for your students.

What this means, your child will not be dismissed from CC to attend UES Chorus, if your child is registered with us. You can however, register your child for UES Chorus only, on those days preferred.  Please plan accordingly. Sorry for an inconvenience this may cause on your after school schedule. If you have any questions or concerns please contact me.

Thank you,
Diadel Ortiz

Dear Parents,

Welcome to the 2014-15 school year at Union Community Connections after School Program.  I am delighted to have your child attend Community Connections this year and look forward to sharing the school year together with him/her.  As a teacher, I will strive to create an educational partnership with you and your student that will foster courage, determination, and passion for knowledge.  In addition to this, my commitment as an educator will be to provide your student with nurturing and challenging programs that will ensure his/her creativity here at CC.

Since attendance and appropriate behavior at school are crucial to the learning process, it is imperative that your son/daughter attends Community Connection with a positive and responsible attitude.  During the first week of school, I will be working together with students to develop a set of classroom rules, rewards and consequences.  Here at CC we offer fun, enriching, academically oriented and recreational activities that help promote confidence, self-esteem and responsibility. We provide children with a safe and secure environment staffed by warm, friendly child care professionals.

I am looking forward to having your child attend Community Connections.  Their enthusiasm and energy offers great challenges and I look forward to my year with them and with you too! If you have any questions or concerns you can always contact me by phone or by e-mailing. I will return your message as soon as I can. I am here to help you and your child have a positive learning experience at Union Community Connections. Thank you for your support and look forward to meeting you.
