Thank You!

Thanks to everyone for making me feel so welcomed at UES! These first few weeks have been really fun! I wanted to comment on how well behaved the students are overall, what a difference a school wide behavior system makes! Thanks for holding them accountable and following through with expectations. They are great kids because of their great teachers!

Here's what we've been up to!
