Dear UMAC Parents,

I’m excited that my UMAC students have finally finished all of PARCC and MAP testing this year. Each student attacked each test with determination and I couldn’t ask for anything more! I’m happy that we can now focus on a fun filled ending to the school year!

Please also mark your calendars for next Thursday evening: Academic Night! Our team has been working so hard this year and we have many great things to share with our biggest supporters: YOU!

Last, but certainly not least... We wish all of our hard-working and dedicated mothers the very best Mother's Day weekend! We hope your children pamper you and give you extra TLC this weekend!

Teacher Appreciation

Thank you SO much for the kind gifts and notes this week. I truly LOVE what I do and enjoy spending each day with my UMAC rockstars. I love watching them grow academically and socially throughout our two year journey together! Thank you for sharing your child with me!

WEB Reading Conferences

Our last week of WEB Conferences will be the week of May 16th. Thank you SO much to our amazing WEB volunteers who gave up their time each week to build a reading relationship with a few of our UMAC teammates! We truly appreciate your time and effort.

Growing Up Unit (Old friends only)

This is a reminder that the fifth graders will be participating in the "Growing Up" lessons during their STEM class. On May 12, the lesson will cover the Endocrine system, the role that hormones play in the daily function of our bodies. Finally, students will read an article about puberty and a movie will be shown on May 20 to the boys and girls in separate locations. Please contact, Mrs. Krutsch, the STEM teacher, with any questions you may have.
