Please remember that our Grade 2 musical will be tomorrow in the MPH. Students should come to school wearing purple or white (dark pants/shorts/skirts are fine). Even all white or all purple (dress OR pants/shirt/skirt) is fine.

We will go directly to the MPH from our line outside, so please try your best to be on time for line up atย 7:50am.

The performance will begin atย 8:15 sharp!

Also, Reading MAP Test tomorrow at 11:00am! All students need a good healthy breakfast as well as a good night’s sleep.

Ramadan Kareem!


Hi everyone,

Ramadan Kareem to all observing Ramadan! May you have a blessed month!

**Tomorrow starts the 8:00-1:00pm Ramadan Schedule at UAS. There is a Day A and Day B schedule for Ramadan. Please look below for the schedule for 2BR.

Also, big reminder to parents to PLEASE email or comment below on this post IF your child is fasting this month. Even if they are fasting until lunch time at 10:15 OR only once a week; I need to know this information. So far I have had 3 emails stating that 3 of my students are fasting but 10 more have told me they are indeed fasting this month. I just need to know this information so a quick comment or email would be much appreciated. Thank you everyone!!

Happy Ramadan to all!

Mrs. Russell
