Welcome message from the PTA President

UNION PTA COUNCILHello!
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.

Administrative Changes Announced

Scott Pennington named director of new Hope – Guidance – Social and Emotional Learning Department;   Clayton Hucke named interim 7th Grade Principal

Dear Union Parents and Guardians: 

I am excited to announce that Mr. Scott Pennington, principal at the Union 6th & 7th Grade Center, has been asked to lead a new department within Teaching and Learning entitled Hope – Guidance – Social and Emotional Learning. As you know, we are in the second year of our five-year district strategic plan. One of the elements of this plan is Union’s Learning Model that focuses on literacy, cognitive capacity, engagement, and social and emotional learning.

As we continuously evaluate our data, and hear from teachers and our site leaders, there continues to be a dominant narrative that more must be done to address the social and emotional development of our students. Collectively speaking, our teachers continue to do amazing work in providing dynamic learning experiences for our students. It is now time for us to articulate a tiered approach to addressing unwanted student behaviors and student trauma – at all grade levels – while also fostering greater hope and confidence in our students’ lives. The idea is that we will be more proactive in our efforts, providing counseling and guidance to address the social, emotional, and academic needs of our students. I firmly believe this will make a positive difference in our students’ lives and in the learning culture of our buildings.

Mr. Pennington’s work as a special education teacher, assistant principal, and principal make him uniquely qualified to lead in this new position. In addition to this change, I am also pleased to announce that Mr. Clay Hucke, assistant principal at Union High School, has been asked to serve as an interim principal at the Sixth & Seventh Grade Center. Mr. Hucke has done an outstanding job at the high school and he looks forward to serving the students, staff, and parents at this site.

Please join me in congratulating Mr. Pennington and Mr. Hucke. These moves will become effective January 1, 2020.

Respectfully,

Kirt Hartzler, Ed.D.
Superintendent
Union Public Schools
