HELP SPREAD THE WORD TO END THE WORD

Help us Spread the Word to End the Word. We invite you to be a fan of respect and join us in an on-going campaign to stop the use of the R-word. Nearly 500,000 people have pledged their support online since the campaign launched in 2009 and we hope you can join us by making your pledge to end the use of the R-word.

 

Visit www.r-word.org and take the pledge and pass this message along to all your friends and family so together we can create communities of acceptance and inclusion for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

 

During Directed Study on April 7 and April 10, there will be assemblies to spread this message and you will have an opportunity to sign a banner pledging to end the use of the R-word.  We hope you will sign along with us.

Uxbridge High School has teamed up with the Jimmy Fund and the Boston Red Sox to shut out cancer. We are raising money for cancer research and we need your help! Join our Rally Team today by giving $5 to the Jimmy Fund, then wear your Red Sox gear April 4, Fenway Opening Day, to celebrate the start of baseball season. If enough people give to our team's fundraising, we could win great prizes like Sox hats, tickets, or an in-person visit from the 2014 Rally Red Sox Spokesplayer! Thank you for helping a great cause! GO SOX!

From the Desk of the Principal

  • Spring is in the air...
    Spring is right around the corner….I know it is because I felt the furry buds on a tree in my neighborhood.  Keep thinking positive thoughts!

    The month of March is a great time of year for uninterrupted instruction! (positive thoughts everyone :))  Within our weeks of instructional time we will transition from quarter 3 to quarter 4, be marveled by our spring musical, be treated to music and meatballs, keep on task with ELA MCAS testing, gear up for the beginning of spring sports, and wait in anticipation of the arrival of 18 visiting students from China.  Additionally, the Class of 2014 is gearing up for prom, graduation, and their final weeks (I do get reminded on a daily bases about the number of remaining days) while all the other grades anxiously await their departure and their own transition to a new grade level.

    The guidance department currently is meeting with students individually to review course selections and update student graduation logs.  Course selections can be viewed through iParent.  Call Mr. Burke or Mrs. Biondi with any questions or concerns that you may have.

    Information to senior parents/guardians about end-of-the year activities will be distributed via connect ed, website, and a letter "backpacked" home during the week of March 10.  Remember to support the Parents for Safe Graduation with their spring activities and final push of fundraising in support of 2014 Safe Graduation.  Seniors will receive scholarship information towards the end of March in preparation of applications submissions in the month of March.  Visit the guidance page for local, state, and national scholarship information that is frequently updated.

    UHS is hosting the Region 7 Destination Imagination Tournament on Saturday, March 8.  We have three elementary, one middle,  and one high school team competing.  Best wishes to all competitors and specifically to high schoolers Patrick Klos and Jayce Knapik in their scientific challenge.

    Enjoy the final touches of winter….I know the Bennett's continue to enjoy our outdoor homemade ice rink with skating parties and skating under the lights as much as possible!

    Best, Tara

SECOND ANNUAL DAN STEFANILO MEMORIAL TRACK AND TRAILS

MAY 10, 2014


The Uxbridge Education Foundation (UEF) is pleased to announce the Second Annual Dan Stefanilo Memorial Track and Trails Race at the new Uxbridge High School on May 10, 2014, including both a 5K and a 1 mile fun run. Register online at http://www.lightboxreg.com/dan-stefanilo-track-and-trail-race   or complete the attached form.

The UEF is a non-profit, 501(c) 3 organization established by a group of concerned Uxbridge citizens looking to enrich the education of the students in our public schools. Dan Stefanilo was a superintendent of schools who passed away suddenly in 2009.  Dan was instrumental in establishing the foundation and worked each year to support the efforts of the group.  Proceeds allow the UEF the opportunity to provide grant funding and scholarships to the Uxbridge public schools and its students. Since its inception in 2005, the UEF has awarded more than $80,000 in grants and scholarships.  

Proceeds from last year’s fundraising efforts funded many programs across all Uxbridge schools with grants and scholarships totaling over $5,000.  The Grants awarded included:  Headsets for Drama Club, Weekly Reader for First Grade, Education in Action, the Taft Book Closet and the Pricing Gun for Independence Project. During these trying economic times, our schools need the collaborative effort of business and community leaders to maintain quality programs and to promote the technology needed for children to be prepared for the future.

We will be holding a 50/50 raffle with the winners being pulled at the race.  We are putting this out to all parents in the Uxbridge Public School system, to ask for your support.   Tickets are $5.00 each.   Please fill out the bottom portion of this form with donation and have your child return it to his/her teacher before May 5th

Thank you for your support of the public education system for our community and for your consideration in this new venture to continue our efforts.
