Welcome message from the PTA President
My name is Anna Long, and I am excited to serve as the Union PTA Council President this year. The Union School District is dear to my heart as my four children have attended Union since Pre K. I jumped at the opportunity to serve in this role because I have fallen head over heels in love with the teachers, staff, administrators, and of course, the students in the District. It was easy for me to get involved when my kids were little through activities like our school’s Jog-a-thon, Junior Great Books, quizzing kids with multiplication flash cards, listening to students read, and on and on… Our schools are breeding grounds for creativity, imagination, and learning. Parental involvement is crucial not only for students, but also for the encouragement of teachers, staff, and administrators. I view myself as the District’s “biggest cheerleader”.
The Union School District and the Oklahoma PTA Association have been long time partners. A bond of mutuality has been formed that has stood the test of time, and it will continue for many years to come due the efforts of many hard working individuals. The PTA is formed by parents, teachers, and administrators all working towards a common goal, promoting and advocating for the welfare of children. As we enter the 2019-2020 school year, the Union School District is celebrating 100 years of service to the Tulsa Community. “Uncommon Vision” has been chosen as the theme for this monumental year, and the Union PTA is excited to continue to support and serve!
I invite you to join the PTA at your student’s school. You will find a dedicated group of individuals focused on what matters most, our kids and their future.
