The contest is open to all UCFSD students (K-12). The deadline to submit your artwork is Monday, November 28, 2022.
All submissions should include the student’s full name, grade and school. Artwork can be submitted at each school’s main office or sent to the District Office (Attn: Communications Department). Or submit digitally by sending a high-quality photo of your artwork to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join us for one or more after school holiday hangouts! December is a busy time for everyone. Get some extra parent time while the kids are having fun during an after school activity.
A variety of games and crafts will be available for the kids to pick and choose from throughout the afternoon along with some holiday movies. Soft pretzels and bottles of water will be provided and students may bring their own snacks too!

FOCUS presents How Does Your "Executive Function"?
FOCUS is proud to announce a new webinar for parents called How Does Your "Executive Function"? to take place this Wednesday, November 30th from 7:00 - 8:30 PM. Perk Musacchio, M.Ed. and Educational Consultant will present on this topic.
Last minute run to the store at 9 PM to get a poster board for a project that is due tomorrow? Forgot to hand in homework that you watched get completed? Is it a case of can’t or won’t? Many parents ask themselves this very question when it comes to the behavior of someone they know (and love). Trying to parent a child whose executive function skills are not fully developed and definitely not performing efficiently can be very frustrating. Come learn what you can do to encourage these skills so that you (and your child) won’t be frustrated.
We hope you join us! Please Share!
