Feb. 15-19, 2021 - Principal Lunde's Weekly Update

When Are We Coming Back To School?

The news is hopping with updates on the topic of returning to school. My intent is to keep our community up to date with what UELF and CRPUSD are doing to prepare for the moment we are open to working with students on site. Presently our county is waiting for us to shift from purple tier to red tier. Once we are shifted, then we are closer to setting a date. While we wait for this shift, our site and district are:

  • ordering the tools so students have their own materials and can manage those materials
  • clearing classrooms and setting up individual learning spaces
  • discussing instructional strategies that maximize in person time
  • identifying the social emotional strategies to support the transition
  • communicating with families in multiple ways to keep them informed

Weekly Family Check-Ins, every Thursday at 4:30pm, address updates around returning to school. Call or email Christina Lunde, christina_lunde@crpusd.org, if you have any questions or just want to talk and have someone listen to you. I am here to support your child and you.

UELF Variety Show

Do you juggle? Play an instrument? Create media stories? Tell jokes?

Whatever your talent is, participate in the UELF Variety Show. On March 17th, the UELF community will settle on our couches, pop popcorn, and celebrate Seawolf Talent. Look in your supply bag for the timeline and expectations for engaging in this event. All acts will be prerecorded and are due to Mrs. Lunde by March 5th. Turn in your interested permission slip so families are aware and can help students design and practice their acts. See you on the stage!

Got Seeds?

Each of you are why UELF has it's community garden. The UELF Garden is unique because:
  • UELF has a garden educator that works with students on a weekly basis
  • classrooms integrate the garden into units of inquiry
  • every child gets to participate in the garden
  • the garden is dynamic, it reflects the interests of the children who attend UELF

Support the garden today by donating $40 or what you can to the garden. Look in your supply bag for a UELF Garden Payment Slip.
