First week in Upper El!

As the first week of school draws to a close, we can reflect on the student’s positive energy and thirst for knowledge they have displayed this week. It promises to be a wonderful year. We warmly welcome our new students and their families to the “other side” of the road. The returning students have been wonderful mentors to the children this week; guiding them with classroom expectations, assisting with work and forming stronger bonds.

sept3This month, Kids C.A.R.E will once again be serving the community. This after school program is open to all Upper El students and provides an opportunity for them to make a positive impact on the community through volunteer work. This is a very popular program for the children and we look forward to another year. For full details, please contact Mr. Andre.

South Sound United (Under 9 and Under 11) will be kicking off the football season this month. Tryouts and practices will be held in the next few weeks on Thursday after school. Games will be held around the island on Saturday mornings. For further details, please speak to either Ms. Karen or Mr. Chad.

We cordially invite all of our families to our Parent Orientation Night on September 30 between 6:00 pm and 7:00 pm. This provides an opportunity for parents to visit the Upper Elementary environment and discuss expectations as they relate to homework and the partnership between the parents and the teachers.

As always, should you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact us in person or via email at
