Principal’s Message

Dear Elementary Family,

As we come to the end of our 2022-2023 Academic School Year, I would like to thank our remarkable teachers, staff and parents for your support. It was delightful to have our parents attend our celebrations and wonderful events this year. These occasions included Reading Week with our parents joining us in the classrooms to read stories with their child, International Night, the Winter Concert, Sports Day, National Day, Career Week, Mother’s Day +and culminating with our Spring Concert. The participation and engagement from our parents was incredible. The hallways and classrooms pulsated with energy, laughter and joy. Thank you for being on this journey with us.
It has been an honor and privilege to work with your children each day. It has been a joy watching their growth academically, socially and emotionally. They eagerly participated in each event from our Character day, Sports Day, and Music Concerts to our Violin lessons, Project based units, Mini Society, Chill & Chat and inspiring assemblies. As they move into the next year I wish them all the best in their journey. Although this will be my final year at UAS, it has been an incredible honor and joy working with each of you and your children.
We could not have done this without the hard work, perseverance and commitment of our teachers, staff, UAS community and the support of our parents. Thank you for a remarkable year. I wish you a safe and enjoyable summer and look forward to having you with our UAS community in the 2023-2024 Academic School Year.

Vice Principal’s Message

Dear Elementary Family,

I am always amazed at how fast the school year goes by! Thank you for going on this learning journey with us. It has been an honor and a privilege to work with your students. It has been great to get back to a normal schedule after Covid. It has been wonderful to have the students here all day, to be able to have parent/teacher conferences in person, music concerts, International night, Sports Day and many other events. Normal has never felt so good.
To the departing 4th graders, I want to wish you good luck as you continue your educational journey in Middle School. We will miss you, but we are also very excited for you and the adventure ahead.
To our incoming 1st graders, we are ready to welcome you to elementary with open arms! There is lots of fun and learning waiting for you next year.
Finally, to the students who will continue their journey in elementary, we want to wish you a fantastic summer and tell you that we will be so happy to see your smiling faces next year!
