7th Ed Uptown School Complex Newsletter

Welcome Back Everyone!

I hope all of you had a great summer. It's that time again! School is back in session! I am excited to not only start another school year, but I am truly excited to be back at the Uptown School Complex. Our theme this year is "Dedicated to Excellence", and excellence is what we will strive for each and every day. The USC staff is outstanding, and our students come eager to learn, grow, and develop. We have a lot to accomplish this year but I am certain that we can reach the highest heights if everyone works together towards excellence. Take care, welcome back, and remember that we are a school that produces Unique Scholastic Champions!
