Learning Today, Leading Tomorrow
Hi Hawk Family,
We had another great week of learning at UES. The "Principals of the Day" scholars have enjoyed their time being in charge of our school. We have a few more this week and can't wait for those scholar principals to share their leadership.
Our American Education Week is going to be exiting as parents will be in the building reading to the scholars. The spirit days will unify our scholars and staff. The food drive will be a testament to our scholars caring character to support our community. Thanks for your support!
Thanksgiving is almost here and we hope that everyone will take time to reflect on everything they are thankful for at UES. Thank you for all you do to support our staff and scholars at UES.
Have a great week.
With Hawk Pride,
