2019 UCPS Parent Survey
UCPS has extended the deadline for the Parent Survey. The survey will remain open until April 26. We encourage you to participate and share your feedback through an anonymous format that will be used to improve our teaching and learning practices and the overall UCPS experience for families. No personally identifiable information pertaining to you or your student will be collected. For your convenience, the survey can be taken through a mobile device and it is compatible with all operating systems. We appreciate your time and cooperation.
The Humanities Director provides support and resources to Kindergarten through 12th grade teachers. Included in the Humanities Department are the visual arts, band, chorus, music, theater arts, dance, physical education, health, and sports medicine teachers.
The humanities are a critical component of a child's education. Humanities education contributes to brain development and higher-level cognitive functions, from creativity to fine and gross motor skills. Additionally, self-expression and individuality are fostered through a child's continuing engagement in the humanities.
