The U.I.L. Academic Program is designed to enrich student learning and provide students with a competitive opportunity. Students in 2nd and 3rd grades will have the chance to try out for our campus U.I.L. team in the coming weeks. A letter will be coming home the first week we return that will provide you details and allow you to nominate your child if you would like for him/her to participate in the tryouts. The events for 2nd grade are Chess Puzzle Solving, Music Memory, Storytelling, and Creative Writing. The events for 3rd grade are Chess Puzzle Solving, Ready Writing, Storytelling, Music Memory, and Spelling.
