Kids at Work
Kids at Upland Elementary are smart and demonstrate good character. This month we focus on relying on our conscience.
Empathy: Empathy is when we put ourselves in someone else's shoes. We take time to pause and consider how other people feel and react accordingly.
We can show empathy when we see someone fall by offering to help him or her up.
We can show empathy when someone in class needs help and offer to help.
We can show empathy when we someone is sad or scared.
We can show empathy when our parents are tired and need some extra help getting chores done.
Remember how important it is to show empathy. Be kinder than necessary for everyone you meet is overcoming some kind of challenge.

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.
