Peppertree Incident

There was an incident late Friday afternoon at Pepper Tree Elementary School in which an after-school employee was injured. No students were involved or harmed.  The situation is secure, the school is safe and the District is fully cooperating with the Upland Police Department. The Police Department will be releasing additional information as it becomes available.

I cannot stress enough that the safety and well-being of our students is our No. 1 priority at Upland Elementary school, and I want to assure you that all steps have been put in place to ensure that. If you have any questions about what we are doing at Upland Elementary School, please feel free to contact me at (909)949-7800 or email me directly at mary_wendland@upland.k12.ca.us

Fondly,

Mrs. Wendland

Upland Elementary Reaches 810 in API

Last week the California Department of Education released the API (Academic Performance Index) for all schools in the state. I am please to announce that Upland Elementary went from a 798 API score to an 810 API score. The 12 point growth is the result of the hard work and dedication of the teachers and staff of Upland Elementary. Without their efforts and the collaboration they have with the students and parents they serve, this growth would not have occurred. I want to say thank you to everyone for making this happen.

Remodeling

During the summer break, our school went through its third phase of improvements. New items were added to the southern part of the campus. Those class now have the same wonderful technologies to enrich student learning as the rest of the classes already had. Another area that received a big facelift was our cafeteria, or as it is now called "The Hungry Bear Cafe". The reaction of staff and students alike has been amazing. As the year goes on, other changes may occur. Any of the changes that do occur will be done to enhance your child's learning experience.
