UBMS Weekly Update
April 8, 2016
2015-2016 THEME: "HAVE THE COURAGE TO SUCCEED!"
This Week's "UB Special" Award!
We have decided to dedicate this week's "UB Special" Award to Mr. Matt Heinen. Mr. Heinen was a special person to many of our students. He was a counselor who guided, who listened, who cared, and who will be greatly missed.
The UBMS staff share in the heartache of the tragic loss of Mr. Heinen yesterday. We are keeping his students, his family, friends, coworkers, and others involved in the accident in our thoughts and prayers. We encourage all students to support each other, and other school staff, during this time. As important, please take care of yourselves and do not be afraid to reach out to your UBMS family whenever needed.
May we all remember to take time to tell those who help us along the way how much we appreciate them because we never know what tomorrow will bring.
Rest in Peace Mr. Heinen.
