Principal’s Message

Welcome Back! 

Together with our teachers, staff, counselor, and Assistant Principal, Ms. Asil Addasi, I want to welcome our students and school community back to school.  We hope you had a wonderful summer. I also hope you are relaxed, recharged, and ready to start a new school year. 

All signs point to another incredible and productive school year. Our skilled and devoted staff is already planning and preparing for your child(ren). Our enthusiastic office team is registering new families, ordering needed materials, and updating student files. The IT, maintenance, and cleaning teams have worked hard to get our school ready for students once again. 

As we begin the school year, please rest assured that careful consideration was given to assigning students to classrooms, which included input from staff and the counselor, as well as considering our students’ learning styles. We will not be moving students as it can cause imbalances and inequities. ALL of our staff works hard to make school a place where learning is the conscious cultivation of the character and mind

I eagerly look forward to greeting students and families again. It remains an honor and privilege to serve as your principal of the Middle School of UAS.  Together, I know we will make this school year one of growth and achievement for all children, as we choose safety, kindness, and responsibility. 

Warmest Regards,

Vice Principal’s Message

Dear UAS Middle School,

I would like to extend a warm welcome to our staff, parents, and students to start the new academic year 22-23.  Our staff are ready and eager to welcome each and every Middle School student in person starting on September 6.  The start of the year means new things to our students such as new  classrooms, new teachers, new uniforms, new supplies, meeting new students, and embarking on a new journey of learning.

I have no doubt in my mind that together we will be able to build a strong foundation and provide the best support for all our students.  Our staff and teachers are very dedicated to ensure the emotional, social, and academic growth of our beloved students. 

As this new year is a complete on campus learning I ask all our students to be mindful of safety protocols, school rules,  and policies. It is important to continue having home support on reviewing school policies on  students punctuality, school attendance, personal grooming, commitment, and mutual respect. 

Let’s make this year a memorable and successful year for  all our students by being an active participant in your child’s education .  I am  looking forward to seeing all our parents  at the Middle School Open House Night on September 13 (6:00-8:00 p.m.)

I am also available and can be reached by  email, phone call, Zoom meeting, or in person for help and support.  

Wishing all our community an outstanding academic year,

Asil Addasi
