Superintendent’s Message

Dear UAS Community,

“Knowledge is power, community is strength and positive attitude is everything.” 

Lance Armstrong

Dear UAS Community,

Welcome back! I hope everyone had an enjoyable summer break!

As we prepare for the upcoming school year, I would like to emphasize the importance of the relationships that form the foundation of our educational community. These connections whether between educators and students, staff members, parents, or the community as a whole, play a vital role in our collective success.

Each interaction, idea exchange, and collaborative effort contributes to the overall atmosphere of our learning environment. Let us aim to cultivate relationships based on trust, open communication, and a shared commitment to the individual growth of all involved.

Teachers, your guidance and dedication shape young minds, fostering a lifelong love of learning. Staff members, your interactions create a welcoming atmosphere that helps students feel accepted and valued. Parents, your partnership strengthens the link between home and school, enhancing the educational journey for all. And to our students, your connections with fellow classmates and educators shape not only your academic experience but also your personal development.

Together, let us approach this new school year with the intention of fostering connections that empower, inspire, and uplift. By creating a community that thrives on the strength of our relationships, we can pave the way for a successful and enriching school year.

Wishing you an awesome year!
