Principal’s Message

Dear Parents, Students, and Community Members,

I think we can all agree that this school year went by quickly. It was an exciting year, in which we welcomed students back to school full time, held many events for parents to take part in their child’s learning, had the real Sports Day for the first time in a while and celebrated students, just to name a few.

As we close out our 2022-2023 academic year, I want to thank you for your support in your child’s success at school. We truly have a fantastic school with a supportive and involved parent community, dedicated and highly skillful staff, excellent resources and buildings and the most fantastic students to work with.

Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff, students, families, and community members for a great year at UAS Middle School Principal. I enjoyed meeting many of you at the events we have had this year. I wish everyone a joyous, safe, and happy summer break.

Kind Regards,

Dr. Chris Passons

Vice Principal’s Message

Dear UAS Students and Parents,

As we are approaching the end of the 2022-23 academic year, I want to start by thanking all of you for a very productive year.  It is important to highlight some of the exciting community events that took place in the Middle School.  Some of the occasions were The  Gallery  Night, Reviewing Students Artifacts and Replicas, Historical Re-enactment,  Biographical Figures, volcanic eruptions,  Poetry Cafe and most recently our musical concert.  We also enjoyed social events such as International Night, Movie Night, Sports Day and Bouncy Castle Day.  Our students this year were very actively involved in the Middle School Student’s Committees: Student Improvement, Events, and Community Service.  The students participated in a Clean Up to recognize and celebrate Earth Day, peer help sessions, and “Adopt-a-Pet” where students provided food and supplies for pets in a local shelter. 

Middle School launched the first Financial Literacy Program, “Bankee” in Kuwait this year. The program was created by a local community group called Creative Confidence and sponsored by National Bank of Kuwait (NBK). The Financial Literacy Program promoted positive behaviors and taught financial terminology as students learned to earn, save, and spend classroom money. Students learned the value of earning money for their work and being responsible to save or spend their own classroom money. The Financial Literacy Program impacted behaviors (PBIS) by acknowledging and rewarding students for good choices concerning their behavior.

A final thought as you are preparing for the Summer holiday, I would like to encourage you to have your child choose books they like to read, schedule a regular reading time every day, and celebrate the completion of reading a book with your child.  “Books are uniquely portable magic”-Stephen King.

We are looking forward to welcoming all of you back on Sep 3, 2023.
