It was a wonderful week of school meeting students and parents! Thank you for your participation this week by walking your students to class on the first day, purchasing school supplies, and getting your children to school on time. It was very good getting to know parents’ views on education and their concerns about UAS Elementary during our first parent meeting. I think we can all agree that UAS is a great community where students and parents feel welcome. I think we can also agree there is some work to be done to ensure UAS is meeting the individual needs of all students. I am confident we can meet these needs and help students’ reach their personal best. I assure you I will be in classrooms everyday observing instruction, getting to know students, and giving feedback to teachers. Please let me know if you have any question or concerns. You can make an appointment with me by contacting Rania Eldanaf at firstname.lastname@example.org.

A Message from Admissions
As a school we are required to register all students with the Knowledge & Human Development Authority (KHDA). As such, all parents are required to bring both their child’s and their own original Emirates IDs to school where we will scan the ID’s and transfer the information into the KHDA system.
Once your child’s details are registered into the system, we will be able to download your Parent School Contract which you will have to sign. For your information, the contract includes all relevant information pertaining to the school, including school fees and transport fees.
In order to complete the registration, you are kindly requested to attend the Admissions Office, from 8.00 am to 4.00 pm, Sunday to Thursday and no later than Thursday, September 27. If the registration is not done by this date, students will not be able to request or receive any official documentation required from the school, such as report cards, enrollment letters, etc.
Thanking you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.
Hania Kabbara-Zaghloul, Director of Admissions/KHDA Liaison

We will share out a calendar for each month that has the Day A, Day B, and Day C listed. At the bottom of the calendar is a space for you to write in the Specials class that always coincides with the Day listed. Your homeroom teachers will ensure that you know which Day goes with which Special.

Early Release Tuesdays

We would like to remind you that, as of next Tuesday, September 11, and every Tuesday hereafter (unless otherwise specified) students will finish school at 2:00 PM.
