 Update

Dear Unity Point Community:

I am pleased to inform you that Deb Gurley and Kerry Glenn will continue their work as members of our administrative team for the 2014-2015 school year.  They will assume a leave of absence from their classrooms and perform administrative responsibilities in a full-time capacity. Deb Gurley, as our Dean of Students, will focus on the day-to-day management of the building, faculty, staff, students, and parents.  Kerry Glenn, as our Curriculum Specialist, will provide continued leadership to our instructional efforts and Continuous School Improvement work.  Deb and Kerry did a great job as interim principals this past school year; stepping into a difficult situation and providing tremendous support and guidance.

We are currently in the process of employing highly qualified teachers to ensure our students entering Deb and Kerry’s classrooms are provided nothing short of an exceptional educational experience.  Mrs. Gurley and Mrs. Glenn will collaborate with their replacements throughout the year to assist in creating a successful learning environment.

I believe we have in place a strong administrative team that will ensure Unity Point continues to move forward with confidence, continuity, and consistency.

Yours in Education,

Dr. Lori James-Gross

 Congratulations!

     Congratulations to Irena Gao, Faith Golz , Leah Hall, and Marissa Ivory for creating a History Fair website that has been recognized as the best in category for the state of Illinois. Their work has qualified them for the National History Day competition in College Park, Maryland.  Their website  is about Robert Prager, who was a German coal miner from Collinsville.  Ultimately, Prager was killed and his murderers were freed. The website can be viewed here.
