What's new in the Flyer Hub?
The Flyer Hub is a great resource for finding information about community activities, opportunities, and services. We post flyers from our district, community education, and organizations within our community. Flyers are organized by age group (elementary, middle school, high school, and adult) and are frequently updated so be sure to check back often.

We thank our Rolling Green Elementary students for contributing their Encouraging Words as they reflect on the devastating impact of Hurricane Harvey as well as provide words of inspiration for us all during challenging times.

With the first few weeks of school underway, many students, staff, and families are becoming more comfortable with new schedules and routines. For some, this period of adjustment may take days or weeks, while for others, it may take weeks or months. We all adjust to new situations in our own time and at our own pace, which is why engaging in healthy communication practices with our children is so important...which begs the question, what is healthy communication?

As many of us recall from our own youth, communication between parents and teens can often feel fraught with obstacles. There are intrinsic difficulties communicating between generations, and when you consider that often conversations can be emotionally charged, it is no wonder so many times parents and teens walk away from a discussion feeling frustrated. 

This is why it’s important to remember that healthy communication doesn’t just involve listening and responding; Continue Reading
The digital age has opened many doors enabling interaction and communication between students, parents, teachers, and coaches outside the classroom and practice. The sheer volume of messaging apps available can be overwhelming, however. One tool that has served the vocal music program at UHS well for the past several years has been Remind. A messaging app conceived with educators in mind, Remind’s greatest strength is in large group messaging. It also supports small group and individual communication. Attaching photos, pdfs, and active hyperlinking are also quite useful capabilities when approaching the 140 character limit. Remind has a built in translate feature which while not perfect can help to connect educators with families where English is not the first language spoken at home. Students and parents can enroll to receive messages via text, email, or directly through the Remind app, and can easily opt out at any time. This app has been instrumental in helping our entire vocal music program stay connected, updated, and informed.
