New Resources for UCPS Families!
The Title I/Federal Programs Department is excited to announce that we now have a Twitter account (@UCPSFamilies) and a Facebook page (UCPS Families)! We are planning to use these as yet another way to reach families with Family Engagement. Be sure to "like" our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter!
The federal No Child Left Behind law requires school districts to notify parents of children attending a Title 1 school of their right to know the professional qualifications of the classroom teachers and teacher assistants who instruct their children. If you would like to view this information please call the school office to request a written copy.
During 2nd grader's first science unit, students have been studying how vibrations can make different sounds. They have explore sound waves and learned about the difference in a high pitch and a low pitch. Students have listened to animal sounds from around the world, all compiled into a “song”. They then had to listen and decipher each sound wave and decide which animal from which country made that particular sound.
Third graders have been working hard in Social Studies. They have been learning the seven continents and the different oceans in the world. They were able to take a blank map and label all of the continents and oceans! We then moved into learning about different landforms. We choose one of the landforms to do research on. Students are researching Mount Everest, which is the tallest mountain on Earth and is located in Asia. Students will create a brochure with all of the information they learned through researching Mount Everest.
4th Grade students have been taking a global look of what is going on in the world around them by watching a daily children’s TV news broadcast. The 5 minute bulletins focus in on main headlines from all over the globe and also add in a few humorous or light hearted tid-bits with stories like a Peruvian penguin getting lost and finding themselves in someone’s kitchen, skateboarding dog, or a slow motion video of a controlled demotion.
