Colchester School District Mission Statement
Union Memorial School provides a safe, caring and dependable environment that guides students towards academic excellence and social responsibility while preparing them for life long learning.
UMS Mission Statement

Union Memorial School is a kindergarten through second grade elementary school with approximately 245 students.

We have strong programs in art, music, library, physical education, and guidance. Teachers in these areas work closely together and with classroom teachers to offer a well rounded education, taking “the whole child” into consideration as we plan for an enriched educational experience.

Our students benefit from strong parent and community support. Parents offer a natural science program known as “Four Winds,” and volunteer and visit as they can. Our PTO raises both funds and fun, with celebrations offered throughout the year to bring parents and students together for relaxation and fun.

Our curriculum is continually updated to align with the Common Core State Standards. Our teachers work closely together to ensure a guaranteed, quality curriculum for every student. For more detailed information about our curriculum, please visit the District’s Curriculum Page.
