Welcome to University Elementary!

On behalf of the teachers and staff at University Elementary I’d like to welcome you.  The dedicated, caring, talented educators at University are pleased to have your children here at our school.  We look forward to getting to know each child and partnering with parents and families to help all our students achieve success.

Success at University Elementary of course includes academics.  We are committed to building strong readers, writers, mathematician, thinkers and problem solvers.  But success is bigger than that!  In partnership with family and community, we aim to develop students who are caring, empathetic, responsible, respectful citizens of our community who have big dreams for their futures.

University Elementary has begun the process of becoming an AVID school by implementing strategies to help students prepare for middle school, high school and beyond. The focus of AVID is on engaging students in WICOR - writing, inquiry, comprehension, organization, and reading skills.  Be watching for more about AVID throughout the year.

I am so proud to be a part of the University Elementary School Community and look forward to working with you and your children.  If you have any questions or comments I invite you to call, email or stop by.

It’s going to be a great year!
