University Elementary at La Fiesta

Principal Lunde's Weekly Update

October 26 2020

The ALL School Assembly on Oct. 23 focused on PERSEVERANCE - when we try something or work through something over and over again. When have you needed to stick with it and just keep working through a task, an emotion, or a situation? Use these opportunities to "narrate" how you work through it. Your kids are craving for guidance and the tools to keep their motivation and their inspiration to be curious, hard-working thinkers. As the adults around them, we can share our thinking process so they see how we dig deep and persevere. Every day we use a strategy to make it the best day.....share these strategies with your children.

UELF Walk The Rainbow

We are excited to share our Walk-a-Thon fundraiser is online! Reach out to friends and family by email, Facebook, and Twitter, instead of going door-to-door, tracking commitments, and handling checks. Each student will also receive a paper envelope prior to the Walk-a-Thon Week to collect any cash donations.

In the coming days, you will receive an email with a link to your participant's pledge page. You do not need to login or change anything. Simply make a donation for whatever you can, and share your participant's link with friends and family. We are shooting for 100% participation so no amount is too small.

What are we working towards?

  • Supporting the maker mindset and project based learning, at home AND at school
  • Building the bridge of our community with virtual and (fingers-crossed) in person events

If you do not receive the email for whatever reason, simply search and find your participant's online pledge page here: http://www.99pledges.com/fund/UELF2020
