October Edition

Greetings from Administration

Greetings Phoenix Family!

It is officially fall and lots of exciting things are happening at UHMS. The quarter is coming to an end, report cards will be coming out, extracurricular activities are going strong and we have lots on the agenda for the month of October including our first VIP Meeting. VIP stands for Volunteers In Partnership. VIP was created to support the relationship between Uplift Education families and faculty. By joining you can make sure you are an integral part of our team. With a new quarter, comes a new grading period. Be sure to check out the grade level newsletters to find out everything your child will be working on to ensure a strong start to the quarter. Reach out to teachers if you have any questions regarding your child’s academics. We look forward to seeing many of you at our first event of the month—Hispanic Heritage. Thank you for all that you do!

Need to Meet With Administration?

Uplift Hampton Middle School is always delighted to speak and meet with parents. While we make every opportunity to meet with parents, please note that arriving to school to meet with Admin without an appointment may result in a scheduling of an appointment for a different time or day. To ensure timely responsiveness please adhere by the following suggestions:

1. Call Ahead and Schedule an Appointment – By calling ahead, it ensures that parents are able to meet with Admin in a timely matter while respecting your valuable time. At various times throughout the day Admin are in meetings, in classrooms supporting teachers or even off campus for meetings. Without an appointment, it can be difficult to meet with parents right away.

2. Email – All emails addresses can be found on our Uplift Website as well as at the bottom of every newsletter. Emailing can possibly save time by eliminating phone tag especially if a call back may occur during difficult to answer situations such as work hours. All emails will be responded to within 48 business hours.

We thrilled with your outstanding engagement in your child’s education and we thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

Additional Information

Dress Code: There have been several dress code violations occurring in the middle school. Scholars are to come in their complete uniform every day. All scholars are to wear their dress uniforms on Mondays which includes a white button down shirt. Bandanas are not part of the uniform and are not accepted as an accessory for anyone on campus. Outer wear (jackets, sweaters, etc.) are to be navy blue, gray, or black. Scholars will be asked to remove all other colors once they enter the building.

Attendance - It’s hard to overstress the importance of your child’s regular school attendance. One of your responsibilities as a parent is to get your child to school every day unless there is illness or an emergency. This is essential because:

  • Your child risks poor or failing grades if not at school.
  • Learning builds every day on what is learned the day before. This routine is interrupted when students only show up part of the time.
  • The whole school can suffer. Schools get state and federal money based on average daily attendance. When attendance goes down, so does the funding a school receives.
  • Your child’s life as an adult depends a lot on whether he has a high school diploma. If your child misses too many days of school, he may not be able to get a diploma.
  • Much research shows that students who skip school will also skip other commitments, like days of work.
