Our Character Strong Focus for April is HONESTY!

This month we’re talking about Honesty! The dictionary defines it as: “fairness and straightforwardness of conduct; adherence to the facts.” The definition we are using is:

Honesty: living truthfully in your words and actions and thoughts!


Honesty is more than just truth-telling! It is about living a life that is thoughtful and clear about what we believe is good and just. It’s about making sure that what we think is kind and worthwhile lines up with what we say and what we do. This month we will connect how Honesty and Kindness are closely related traits.

Art for the Sky is Coming in May!

We are pleased that the UES will once again participate in an Art for the Sky project! In 2014 we created a Tiger and in 2017 a large birthday cake! On May 11, 12, and 13, our entire school will work with artist Daniel Dancer to create a giant work of art that will tie in with our 2021-2022 Read It Forward book, The Season of Styx Malone.
