From The Principal

Mark your calendars for Parent Teacher Conferences: November 12th (4:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.), and November 14th (12:30 pm to 3:30 pm and 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm). We will be using SignUp Genius again this year for parents to schedule their own conferences within our conference window. Please be on the lookout for SignUp Genius information to come home in a few weeks.

Thank you for your continued involvement in your child’s education!

Your Proud Principal,

UCS Mission

We are committed to exemplary teaching and learning in order for our students to be prepared for success in the 21st Century.
We will achieve this commitment by engaging the entire community to focus on each child's achievement, with the expectation that every student will pursue some type of post-high school educational endeavor.

Core Values

  • Every child can learn and achieve.
  • Parents and guardians are partners in the learning process.
  • Being “smart” can be achieved through persistence, hard work and effective effort.
  • Excellence is expected and celebrated.
  • Data is used to guide our decision-making.
  • All employees will exemplify ethical behavior; exhibit a strong work ethic; and continue to develop their leadership, performance and service skills.
  • Technology supports and enhances instruction, business operations, research and communications.
  • The Board of Education, district educators/staff, parents, community members and business leaders must collaborate and work as a team to enhance educational opportunities for student success.
