Welcome to UAS Middle School

Welcome to UAS Middle School Pride, where excellence and enthusiasm collide! My name is Pat Hould, and I am very proud to be the Principal at the UAS Middle School! WOOHOO!

When we held our first meeting as a Middle School staff on August 25, a quote/idea was introduced that I believe symbolizes the unique and rewarding challenges we will encounter this school year as we start our new school.  “Make It Happen” was the expression introduced to our team, and it was accompanied by the following quote:

“Greatness is not in where we stand, but in what direction we are moving.
We must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it –
but sail we must, and not drift, nor lie at anchor.”
Oliver Wendell Holmes

With an awesome group of teachers by my side, I believe we are heading our Middle School and our students in a positive direction. Together we are going to make some extraordinary things happen at UAS!  In addition, I am truly grateful for your partnership in this voyage. Rest assured that this truly is an adventure of untold proportions – the likes of which have never been seen at this school before, and which may never be witnessed again.  We are a part of something truly special, and I couldn’t be prouder to be along for the ride!

On behalf of our dedicated Leadership Team and talented teachers, I want to wish you and your child the very best in the coming school year.  Until we meet face to face, please take good care and may peace be upon you.
