Greetings UHCS Families,

As we approach the end of the 2018-2019 school year, I would like to take the time to acknowledge a few highlights. Dog Man by Dav Pilkey was book of the year. Our Scholars truly enjoyed reading about the great adventures of Dog Man. I enjoyed exploring Liberty Science Center with you and your children. Our Book Tasting this past October was our first and an event I plan to continue next school year. I am proud of the wonderful job our Scholars did for our yearly Science Fair and the great accomplishments from our Spelling Bee participants and winners. Last but certainly not least, I cannot close this letter without mentioning our Vocabulary Parade; the creativity and excitement shown from you as well as the Scholars was rewarding.

I have welcomed the conversations and dialogue as we have worked together to support Scholars. Providing safety, social-emotional opportunities, and seeing academic growth amongst all Scholars is and will remain my number one priority.

I wish you and your family a summer that includes, fun-family experiences, safe adventures, and relaxing reading moments.

Yours in education,

Wyomia L. Scott
Principal, Lower School
