YouthArts!

Union Public SchoolsCreativity for more than 40 Years!

Union's Fine Arts Department proudly presents YouthArts!, an annual fine arts festival showcasing the creative works and talents of elementary and secondary students.

YouthArts! is one of the longest running festivals of its type in the state of Oklahoma. In fact, it is celebrating its 41st anniversary in the spring of 2020 and the 100th year of Union Public Schools. YouthArts! was founded by Ed Tackett, now retired director of Fine Arts, and has grown immensely over the years. 

Under the direction of the district's 50-plus fine arts teachers, the multi-day event is scheduled in late April and includes a variety of performances and exhibitions all open to the public. Those include:

  • Combined Elementary Choir Concert
  • High School Repertory Theater Production
  • One Act Play Festival
  • Visual Arts Exhibition
  • Secondary Vocal Music Concerts
  • Competitive Speech Exhibit
  • High School Orchestra Concert
  • Secondary Band Concerts
  • High School Jazz Band Concert
  • Winterguard Performance

Last Day of School is May 22

Friday, May 22 will be the last day of school for the 2019-20 year. Additional time will be added to the school day for students in grades 6-8 beginning Monday, March 23, and continue through the end of the school year.

“Due to two days of school that were cancelled due to inclement weather, the district calendar had to be adjusted to meet the minimum state requirement of 1,080 hours of instruction,” Superintendent Dr. Kirt Hartzler said. “We wanted to adjust the calendar so students don’t have to come back after Memorial Day.

Modifications to the school schedule will be made as follows:

  1. Add one day at the end of the year, with Friday, May 22, being the last day of school;
  2. Elementary schools:  No change to the schedule. They have enough school hours to meet the required 1,080 hours.
  3. 6th & 7th Grade Center:  4 minutes added to the end of the school day effective Monday, March 23 (the day after spring break). 
  4. 8th Grade Center:  2 minutes added to the end of each day after March 23.
  5. Union High School Freshman Academy:  No change to current times.
  6. Union High School:  Friday, April 10 will be a “virtual day,” with students working on assignments from home.
