Dear University Park Panthers,

It's hard to believe that this is our last full week of school. It has been such a pleasure to be back at University Park this year and working alongside all of you to support our wonderful students. I hope you have a wonderful summer break. Our office will re-open on August 14th. Our first day of school for the 2018-2019 school year is August 23rd. I am looking forward to another year of learning and fun at University Park! Be safe and enjoy your summer!

This week at UP:

Last Day of School on Friday:  NO FLAG DECK

6th Grade Promotion begins at 8:15 in the Quad. 6th Graders will be dismissed from school at the end of the promotion ceremony.

                TK & Kinder students are on the early bird schedule and will be dismissed at 11:20 AM

                1st – 5th Grades are on Minimum Day schedule; they will be dismissed at NOON.

LOST AND FOUND ITEMS:  Please check lost and found cart located in the quad. Items remaining after Friday 6/8 will be donated.

This week we will continue with the Play First Lunch schedule. The “Play First Lunch” schedule has been tried by several schools in IUSD and across the United States with many benefits including:

  • Improved student behavior on the playground and in the classroom
  • Fewer accidents during the lunch break
  • Students are more relaxed and focused on eating rather than thinking about getting outside to play
  • Less litter on the school ground and inside the school
  • More food eaten; increased fluid intake
  • Students return to the classroom more quickly and are settled and ready to learn

We will follow the same schedule we currently have in place for lunch times. Students will be dismissed to the playground to play for 20 minutes before eating lunch, followed by time to go to the washroom and wash their hands and then sitting down to lunch at the lunch tables.
