Greetings UHCS Families,


Happy New Year! We are so excited about all of the wonderful activities and initiatives in 2022.  As we enter this year, the Elementary School has made several investments in instructional programs that we believe will enhance our scholars’ academic engagement and strengthen our instructional environment. Additionally, we have continued with our REACH Academy and will begin to implement a Homework Academy to aid our scholars in the classroom.


Along with the teachers and staff, I will continue to build upon the success of the school by maintaining strong relationships with parents, students and community partners.  In that endeavor, we have established our first Student Council as we know that students who have voice and choice in their school are successful. Moreover, I have begun our Sip and See with Dr. Scott and Friends as an informational and discussion session where we partner to continue to enrich the school culture.


As we move into 2022,  it is important to me that everyone who we serve-teachers, students and parents-are excited to be here!  This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of today, while providing  academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment.  My door is always open and I welcome your input.  Please feel free to call the school at  973-623-1965 or email me at cidibrown@uhcs-newark.org to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year.


I look forward to working with you as a team to help each student in the Elementary School meet their goals and have a successful school year!


Please stay safe and healthy!

Dr. Cidi B. Scott
