Our schools depend upon the strength and support of the people in our Unit 40 community.  From cheering on our athletic teams to serving as mentors to our students, our community members make our schools a richer place for the young people of our community to learn and to grow.  We encourage you, our community members, to help us maintain this strong school-community connection through your continued support


The goal of Unit 40's Mentoring Program is to give support to students as well as their parents and caregivers so that our children can be as successful as possible in both school and life.  For more information about this valuable program including information on how to get involved, please visit the Mentoring pages.
