Kids at Work
Kids at Upland Elementary are smart and demonstrate good character. This month we focus on relying on our conscience.
Conscience: There are times when we need to shut out the noise, get quiet, and listen to the little voice within so we do the right thing for ourselves and others. Students consider the function of their conscience and that listening to their conscience will help them build self-respect, confidence and the respect of others.
On Thursday, October 23, 2014, Isaiah Shelton-Dobine, a student at Cabrillo Elementary, lost his life after being hit by a car on the way to school. It is a tragic loss for his family, school and our community. If you feel compelled to provide financial assistance to his family, you may do so by following the link below.
About Upland Elementary
Welcome to Upland Elementary! Our school opened in 1939, making it the oldest school in the Upland Unified School District. This gives it the distinction of being one of the most historical buildings in Upland. We have nearly 550 students TK-6 and the school has gone through modernization for the past three years. The modernization has helped bring new and exciting experiences to every student.
The staff at Upland Elementary believes that every child at our school has the potential to excel and accomplish great things. In addition to a challenging curriculum, our students have access to up to date technology, music and PE. We promote positive character traits such as tolerance, integrity and empathy. Parent and family involvement play a significant role in determining a child's intelligence, competence and achievement. For this reason, we will be offering Family Education where parents and care-givers learn how they can help support their child's learning.
This year we will provide instruction using the Common Core standards as our guide. Our staff will work diligently to empower our students with academic and moral intelligence so that they are prepared to move forward with their education. We are excited to build a partnership with our families and look forward to a wonderful school year!
