Greetings Ucon Wildcats:
Welcome to a new school year! I am pleased that our school achievement in Math and Language was very strong in 2016-17. Kudos to our parents, teachers and students for their commitment to excellence in learning! Most (90%) of a student’s motivation and drive to learn is generated at home, so we greatly appreciate parents who support our teachers and hold their children accountable. Students who read every night, complete their homework, and come to school prepared each day enjoy significant learning advantages over those who don’t.
Ucon has grown by nearly 100 students over the summer! We welcome seventy-five new students coming to us from Discovery Elementary School due to boundary shifts. This occasioned the hire of an additional 3rd grade teacher. We welcome Katie Hjelm to our Ucon family. The boundary shift had a dramatic influence on all our grades, but especially 4th, 5th and 6th where we funnel down to two teachers each grade. These six teachers must deal with large classes this year. I do anticipate hiring additional 4th and 5th grade teachers spring 2018 to address this problem.
Let’s all work together to provide a wonderful place where our students can blossom in a garden of love and learning!
