Kids at Work
Kids at Upland Elementary are smart and demonstrate good character. This month we focus on relying on our conscience.
Kindness: We show kindness when we show others that we care. We also show kindness when we are gentle with our words and actions.
Consciously model kindness. Look for every opportunity to show kindness to others like phoning a friend who is down, soothing an upset child, baking cookies for the family, giving directions, asking someone how she is, and so on. Then be sure and share with your family how good it made you feel!
Expect and demand kindness. Spell out loudly and clearly that others must be treated kindly. You could say, “Unkindness is wrong, it’s hurtful, and it will not be tolerated!”
Teach the meaning of kindness. Take time to make sure your kids understand what kindness means. You might say, “Kindness means that you are concerned about other people. Kind people think about another person’s feelings and not just their own, they help someone in need, and they are kind even when others are not. Kindness makes the world a nicer place, because it makes people happy.”
Show what kindness looks like. Here is an activity you can do anywhere you are around others. It is called a “kindness watch”. The object is to look for people who show kindness to others. Children should watch to see what the kind person did and then see how the other person reacted to the kindness

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.
