Learning Today, Leading Tomorrow

Hilliard Highlights

Our scholars are so talented. Mrs. James and I were able to watch our scholars excel as they put on a great production of Aladdin. A big thanks to the MET, the PTA and the play committee for their vision so our scholars could SOAR while performing. We are so HAWK PROUD of every performer!

Every time we look at the calendar we wonder where did this year go! Our staff made sure that each of the 171 days your scholar experienced at UES was one to support our school mission: Learn Today, Lead Tomorrow. We have 9 more days of instruction left in this school year and we will provide instruction until June 2nd.

Have SOARING good week.

With hawk pride,
