A few key items for the last 8 days:

  • PreK and KG1 will be dismissed at 12:00 (with the whole school) on Tuesday, June 20.

  • Spring MAP Reports are now available on the UAS portal for parents to view and download.

On Sunday of this week, the Elementary School had the annual “Moving-On Up” day…it was a true joy to observe the students travel to their next year’s grade level teachers for some fun classroom activities. Teacher were observed to read with the students, enter into dialogs about the grade level opportunities, greet and meet…a truly wonderful and engaging experience for all! From current grade 5 students presenting about Exhibition current grade 3 students learning about responsible technology use to our young ones exploring centers, this was a great time for students to look forward to what is to come in the future

Save the Date!

We will host a Parent Only evening to review the school’s goals for 2017-18 school year; introduce new faculty to ES and review the Parent-School Handbook. A tentative date has been set for Wednesday, September 6th in the MPH.

On behalf of the entire Elementary School staff, Amanda and I wish you a great summer holiday. We also thank you for the privilege and honor to have worked with your family throughout this school year…It Was A FANTASTIC Year!
