UAS is getting ready to celebrate Literacy Week from February 28-March 3. Check the calendar of events for some of the key details.
Also note that we are having a book drive! Why?
In order to continue to foster a love of reading and develop reading skills in our students, we are in the process of building our school classroom libraries.
While we have purchased many books for our class libraries, we will also be VERY grateful for book donations that students, parents and families are able to make.
The better our classroom libraries, the more excited our students are to read, grow and learn.
Upon donation, a “Donated by…” sticker will be placed in the front of the book recognizing the donor. This will be a fun and important way of acknowledging these generous donations.
There is a box in the UAS foyer for you to place your book donations.
Once all books are collected, we will then ensure that they find appropriate homes in our classroom libraries, ready for the students to learn from and enjoy.
Wondering what to purchase?
Click on the link to see our suggested book titles. The list is full of appropriate suggestions but of course, if there are other appropriate books that you would love to donate, then we will gratefully receive it.

Also note that if you wish to buy multiple copies of a book (up to 4) then this means that we will be able to place a copy of that book in each grade level classroom. For example, if you LOVE the book “The Lightening Thief” by Rick Riordan, it would be a fine idea to buy multiple copies of it so they can be placed in multiple classrooms.
Thank you for any donations you can make.
As a community, we all can support our students to develop their love of reading!
