Week of August 24th
What a great start!
Greetings Coyote/Lobo Nation!
As we continue to move forward in adjusting to the new way of teaching & learning, I can see the hard work, commitment, and dedication that all of the UHS staff have put forth. Whether it is participating in virtual trainings, implementing new skills, or simply being online to be available for student support, everyone has pulled together to make this first week a positive experience for students, parents & teachers. The UHS family has definitely demonstrated that teamwork definitely makes the dream work.
We will continue striving for excellence by doing everything possible for our students' success and each other. Thank you for all that you do. "Rep the U!"

Iliana Garcia - UHS Chemistry Teacher
The UCISD Remote Learning Teacher Spotlight is on Iliana Garcia, UHS Chemistry teacher! Ms. Garcia was observed interacting with her students by having them present about themselves and it was noted that she made a personal connection with each and every single student's presentation. She modeled how to use Google Meet to present their slides presentation, as she also modeled patience and understanding in a new learning environment. The discussions had in her virtual classroom this week, although not easy to do virtually, are sure to set her students up for success, knowing that they can reach out to her, ask for help, and count on valuable feedback from her throughout the year. There is no replacement for good relationships and rapport. Thanks, Ms. Garcia, for all that you do for UHS students!

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 administration, teachers and staff will help develop, implement, and maintain a culture of service that is based on the following:
Students always come first &
All students can learn and achieve.
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. The students shall be held no more accountable than the adults and vice versa. 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.
