Dear Elementary Parents,
Ramadan Mubarak! Thank you for another wonderful and productive school year. Thank you to all our parents for your support of our efforts to make sure UAS students are engaged and successful in their learning. Continue to support your child’s learning over the summer in fun ways by reading with them and discussing the stories, listening to their stories because we know children have a lot of stories to tell! I have enjoyed working with your children over the past two years and my favorite time is on the courtyard in the morning when students come to school with greetings and stories about their experiences. This year during our school assemblies we had student presentations which really showcased the talents and leadership skills of our students. There were many other experiences for our students this year with the grade 3 market day, swimming competitions, dramatic presentations, concerts by our amazing music department and our Arabic staff, sports activities, Night at the Library, Carnival and International Day. Those experiences could not occur without the endless energy, skills and devotion of the UAS staff. Thanks and well done to an incredible group of professionals.
A final word to our UAS Elementary Eagles: Thank you for all your hard work throughout the school year. It was an honor to be your Principal. You kept me laughing and young at heart. I am grateful for your joy, astute insights and amazing talents. Best wishes to our graduating fourth grade students; I know you will go on to do wonderful things in the world. Everyone have a safe and happy summer break.
Wishing you love, laughter and learning.
Ms. Mary Kelly
Elementary School Principal
Vice Principal’s Message
Dear UAS Parents and Students,
Ramadan Kareem!!! As we progress towards the end of this school year, it is imperative that we maintain a positive and productive learning environment. Students at the elementary level need to have clear expectations for behavior and sense of consistency for behavior in their classrooms, on the playground, on the bus, and at home. Please support us by continuing to follow and enforce, classroom guidelines as well as the discipline policy found in the Student/Parent Handbook.
In addition to following the policy on discipline, please support our students in having a strong finish by; ensuring that they have a healthy breakfast before school, getting them to school on time (gate opens at 8:40AM and the tardy bell rings at 9:00AM), checking their lunches for healthy snacks, and by reviewing and signing their student planners each night. Working together, we make a difference in the lives of our students. Please join us in our efforts.
