District Math Challenge
The annual district math challenge was Wednesday, April 22, 2015. This challenge invited students in grades 3-6 to come and show off their math skills. Dos Rios and Hurley Ranch had teams comprising of their most enthusiastic math students. The math challenge required teams to participate in two sessions. The first forty-five minute session was a compilation of questions that involved problem solving with multiple math standard encompassed questions. The second session was a ten-minute trivia round. Students were required to answer questions that represented math facts about conversions of measurement, number sense, and numbers base ten.
The winning teams were the third and fourth graders from Dos Rios and the fifth and sixth graders from Hurley Ranch. These teams will have the opportunity to represent the Union Elementary School District at the regional competition.
We would like to thank all of the students, teachers, and parents that were a part of the math challenge. Our students were fortunate to engage in a higher level of rigorous questions in a collaborative setting. This was an excellent representation of the Arizona College Career Ready Standards.
Bicycle Safety Event
The Union Elementary School District (UESD) in partnership with the City of Phoenix organized a free bicycle safety event for the UESD community.

The Business Services Department was there to do free face painting, and superintendent Dr. Rice made balloon animals for kids and even some adults!
