Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2021-22 School Year! 
The faculty and staff of East Union Intermediate Center are excited to begin another adventure as we learn and work together to create an outstanding academic experience for your child.  We are looking forward to a safe reopening to the school year.  At this time the Deer Lakes School Board as approved our return to school plan which states that masks are optional in the school buildings.  Masks are required on all district transportation- even for those who are vaccinated.  

Your children will be greeted by an exceptionally strong and professional staff comprised of seasoned educators and those new to the profession.  They all share the same strong work ethic and commitment to serve all students in an environment that is supportive of students’ social and emotional needs as well as their academic needs.

Active participation in your child’s education is important.  Helping your child maintain positive work habits and attendance will ensure that he/she succeeds in the classroom.  Please take the time to familiarize yourself with the East Union Intermediate Center Student Handbook that can be found on our district website.  This handbook addresses many issues that may arise during the school year.  It is our objective to be proactive in helping students succeed, and this handbook is one way to do this.  

Our goal at East Union is to provide a safe and intellectually challenging environment that will empower students to become innovative thinkers, creative problem solvers, and inspire learners to thrive in the twenty-first century.  

We are looking forward to a BRIGHT year at East Union!!
