Elementary School

Deanna Rush, Principal 

Welcome to the website of Union Elementary, home to approximately 380 beautiful children in grades Pre-K through fourth.  I am honored to serve as principal here, the very place where I attended elementary and where my own children attend.  Continuing to build on the strong heritage of this school, we strive to meet the academic and emotional needs of all our students.  By surrounding them with stimulating instruction, challenging opportunities, and intensive support, we hope to help our students develop into confident, moral, and intelligent lifelong learners who will impact the world in exciting and positive ways.  We are excited about the 2017-18 school year.  Our theme for this year is "Seussville," so come learn with us as we prepare to go off to great places!  Please take a look around our website and visit our Facebook page to keep up with all the exciting things going on at UES.  You're welcome to visit us in person an any time, and if I can be of any assistance at all please don't hesitate to contact me at rushd@unioncity.k12.ms.us or 601-774-8257.
