Unionville Elementary Celebrates 100 Years With An Open House

As part of the Unionville-Chadds Ford School District's Centennial Celebration, Unionville Elementary hosted an open house on Saturday, November 4, to welcome UCFSD community members into the building where it all started! When the district opened in 1923, the school served all students in grades 1-12.

Attendees were able to tour the school and explore the rich history within its walls. Items such as art, blueprints, old uniforms, photos, programs, and yearbooks were on display for visitors to enjoy. UES Principal, Dr. Michelle Lafferty provided remarks along with UCF Superintendent, Dr. John Sanville. Local historian and former UCFSD teacher Ray McKay provided attendees with a detailed story of the formation of the Unionville-Chadds Ford School District from 19 one-room schoolhouses. The presentation ended with Senator Carolyn Comitta, Representative Christina Sappey, and Representative Craig Williams presenting citations in honor of the district's 100th year. Thank you to our students, staff, and community members for making this celebration an event to remember!
