UNION, NJ - Here's just a few things that happened in Union's schools this week:

Franklin Franklin Elementary School hosted a College Awareness Day where students from PreK to 4th grade learned information about post-secondary education and many types of schools. It was a fantastic day full of many activities inside the classroom and a college fair in the gym. Teachers and staff worked very hard to make it meaningful and impress upon students the importance of their future and setting their goals on higher education. One of the highlights of the day was the visit from the Kean Cougar mascot.

Kelly Severini signed this week and will be playing at the University of Hartford. She is an amazing young lady who has given so much of her time to Union Soccer. Her coaches and teammates will miss her very much! U always make us proud Kelly!

Mrs. Tobia is one of the AMAZING and SUPPORTIVE teachers at UHS. She was a cheerleader in 1991 when they won a State Championship. Thank you to Mrs. Tobia and all the teachers and staff at UHS that have been so supportive of all of our athletes. You care about our youth in all aspects of their lives and we appreciate you!

Jack Debarbieri began his career at Kawameeh in 1974 and for forty-four years was an instructor in physical education. He was a long-time football coach for the high school football team as well as the Union High School wrestling team. Mr. Debarbieri was also part of the team that established “Family Fitness Night” at Kawameeh Middle School. So last night was a perfect night for the dedication ceremony of the Kawameeh Middle School Gymnasium in honor of Jack Debarbieri which was then followed by the “Family Fitness Night”.
