Classes at traditional schools begin in less than two weeks! If you haven't started getting ready, now is the time to start.
This week, as many as 150 rising sixth-graders got a head start on the new school year by attending middle school transition camps at Monroe and East Union middle schools.
Thanks to Naviance, a college and career readiness software, UCPS students as young as 11 years old will soon be able to get a head start on planning for their future. By having students think about their post-secondary plans as early as sixth grade, the software will ultimately help them identify their strengths, explore career interests and create education plans for high school and beyond.
Last year, more than 200 UCPS staff members were trained on the importance of mindfulness and self-care for educators and students. Since then, the therapeutic techniques have been practiced in six schools across the district, including Walter Bickett Elementary, where Principal Dr. Jamie Benfield hopes her students will ultimately learn how to integrate mindfulness into their lives.
