Thank you all so much for attending Back to School Night. It was so exciting to see so many parents attend and hear about the learning collaboration that happens in the classroom. Thanks so much for being a collaborative part of your scholars education.
Mrs. James and I are so impressed with the quality of instruction from our staff. Our scholars are demonstrating their understanding of the content being taught. We are using the co-teaching model to ensure we meet the needs of our diverse learners. The co-teaching model also allows staff to provide focused instruction to enrichment or reteach our scholars on their instruction level. At UES we believe in RIGOR for all scholars at their personal instructional level. Our scholars are doing well at the Hawks Nest!
