Principal’s Message

Dear Parents,

This is the end of a challenging school year and I would like to thank each and every one of you for your hard work and understanding in this unsettling time. Teachers, parents and students have come together as one learning community on our journey to the culmination of a year full of many accomplishments. Your child has learned how to become an independent learner who is able to problem solve and take risks. This year more than ever, your child has set the stage to becoming a life-long learner. You as a parent have also been given this precious opportunity to work one-on-one with your child and to see for yourself the wonder of learning something new for the first time in the eyes of your child. Through this devastating period, we have all become teachers and students and again I thank you for your support.

It has been a pleasure to watch your child meet many educational milestones especially when it has been a difficult task working online for all involved. We will say farewell to our KG-2 students as they will continue their journey onto the Elementary School and we wish them well.  We have appreciated all the support that you have given to help us make your child feel safe and secure even as they remain home during this worldwide pandemic. It has been difficult for the teachers and staff not to have the opportunity to say farewell to your child in person; however, please know that we are all proud of your child’s accomplishments and wish you a safe and restful summer. We look forward to seeing you all in the new school year.

Vice Principal’s Message

Dear Parents and Students,

As we reach the end of an unconventional year of learning, I want to congratulate our students and their families on completing a successful school year!

This academic year has challenged staff and students to map a new course for learning. With the support and feedback of our parent community, we were able to forge this new path successfully and celebrate our collective goal of successful student learning.

As our students move on to new Grade Levels, we want to extend our well wishes to them, knowing with confidence that our students are persistent, committed, adaptable learners. We, as educators, have learned much from our students – their growth mindset, willingness to try new things, and flexibility have set the bar high.

Congratulations to all our learners, and special congratulations to our KG2 students as they move on to Grade One.

We wish our UAS Community members a restful, safe, and healthy summer break.

See you in the fall,


Heather Ure, M.S.Ed.
