Kids at Work
Kids at Upland Elementary are smart and demonstrate good character. This month we focus on relying on our conscience.
Self Control: Self Control is something we use on a daily basis. When we use self control we think before we act and speak. People who have self control are not impulsive.
We can use self control when we choose to not talk back to our parents
We can use self control when we choose to walk away from arguments instead of yelling or hitting
We can use self control when we choose to not shout out in class
We can use self control when we choose to make healthy choices even when we want to eat junk food
Remember we are not in control of many challenges we face, but we can control how we react to them.

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!
Upland Elementary is now a Provision 2 school. This allows all students to eat breakfast and lunch free of charge. If you have any questions about the program please feel free to contact the school, Jamie Phillips (Director of Nutrition Services at the District Office), or click on the picture below.
