Uvalde High School Newsletter
Week of February 10, 2020
The spring semester is well on it's way and gaining more momentum as the days go by. There are many activities going on in campus to keep both students and staff members very busy. It is important to remember that our purpose is the education students. Teachers & staff, you may at times feel that you are being pulled in eight different directions. We must remain focused. It is the role of teachers and staff to be the "rock" for many of those students that may not have that in their home life or for those simply seeking our guidance. Let's continue to give each other our very best. Let us be a support for each other and those whom we serve. Let's do it the Uvalde way. The loyal & true believe in the “U” by reppin’ the “U”.
- WE WILL BE HAVING A FACULTY MEETING THIS TUESDAY AT 7:30AM IN THE LIBRARY.
- We will NOT be having Saturday tutorials this week. All teachers will need to actively recruit when providing tutoring during the week or on Saturday.
- All teachers need to follow up with student absences by making parent contacts and notifying the front office.
- There will be NO SCHOOL on the 17th, next Monday.
Teachers, if your observation has not been scheduled with your appraiser, please request one as soon as possible. Remember that by consistently striving for excellence and doing everything possible for our students' success, we will demonstrate that that we do believe in the “U”.
Let's make it a great week!

Pack Leader of the Week!
Albert Nevarez - CTE Construction Teacher
The pack leader for this week is CTE Construction Teacher, Albert Nevarez! Mr. Nevarez teaches our students the art of woodworking, helps students attain industry certifications and ultimately provides students the opportunity to learn life-long skills that could be used to seek both a profession or a hobby. Whether its benches, tables, or competition projects like pool tables, Mr. Nevarez finds creative ways to engage all students. He also helps students develop a sense of pride by working on projects for the campus, District and community. All of that would not be possible without a teacher that gains the trust and interest of students. Thank you for striving for excellence and instilling pride in our students. Thank you Mr. Nevarez for what you do.

Uvalde High School - Our Vision
It is the vision of Uvalde High School that educators, students, parents/guardians and the community will work together to create and uphold a world class school where students display excellence in all they do.
At Uvalde High School, students will embrace challenges and opportunities to think critically and solve complex problems. They will express themselves with confidence and respect, and they will demonstrate support for one another. They will put forth quality effort in their learning and exhibit loyalty toward pride of, and unity within our school.
Our school will utilize communication and support from parents/guardians and the community in making school related decisions. Students will be actively and passionately involved in school and in the community and will focus on becoming responsible citizens to ensure success in future endeavors.
Uvalde High School - Believing in "U"
Uvalde High School faculty and staff will help develop, implement, and maintain a culture of service that are based on the following:
Students always come first.
This precept simply states that failure will not be tolerated. We will believe that when a child fails to learn, it is the system that fails – not the child. The campus (administration and the entire staff) must assume ownership and accept accountability for the learning outcomes of every child. We will value the individual, their intrinsic value and ability to be part of their decision process in attaining a quality education. This belief will provide the foundation that promotes a culture that continuously strives for excellence.
All students can learn and achieve.
This fundamental tenet proclaims that every child can and will learn in an educational setting committed to high expectations for all. A perception of an education system in which young people leave the public schools semi-skilled, and enter low wage, service jobs is incongruent with the technological 21st century and will not be accepted as the norm.
