Our 9th and 10th grade students (David A, Jonathan G, Brittiny S, Ly'Jhia S, Mark K Diamond T, and Jalil C) did an awesome job as presenters and ambassadors for U School in front of national audience of educators at EDUCON conference this weekend. Students shared their stories, ethnographic research in progress, participated in conversations and other conference workshop. Way to REP the U School!

Our Core Value for the month of February is Responsibility - the opportunity or ability to act independently and make decisions without authorization.

Students should make sure you are responsible with your time. Use time wisely during check-ins, tune-ups, mini-lessons, and on demand assessments to prepare for greatness.

Below is important news you can use.
