Monroe, NC—Since his first day on the job, Dr. Andrew Houlihan has made engagement a priority. To date, Superintendent Houlihan has visited more than 30 schools and met with UCPS and county leaders. As part of his 90-day entry plan, Dr. Houlihan is launching a Listening and Learning Tour. Beginning Sept. 21, the Superintendent will hold a series of meetings throughout Union County to meet with employees and community members.
There will be two key questions presented at each meeting—What’s working well in UCPS and what opportunities are there for growth to make our school system the best? Feedback from the Listening and Learning Tour will inform the district’s Strategic Plan and other initiatives.
At each location, Dr. Houlihan will meet with employees from 5 – 6 p.m. and community members from 6 – 7 p.m. For updates about the meetings, follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram @UCPS_MonroeNC. Community members may also submit feedback email@example.com.
Patriot Day is recognized as the the official day of remembrance for the tragic events that occurred on September 11, 2001. Many brave men and women risked their lives to help the victims. To expand on the importance of Patriot Day, our first grade students participated in Heroes Week.
This year our kindergarten classes at Porter Ridge have had a special opportunity to partner with a classroom across the world! We have developed a friendship with a 1st grade class in Cairo, Egypt
