Letter from the Principal

2020 Sandhills Wells Fargo Region Principal of the Year!!!

Wow! I can't believe we've reached the start to the 2020-2021 academic school year. Our key word for this school year is RESILIENCE!! We will remain resilient as we work through the challenges to make this a successful school year for our students. Our theme for this school year is, "A Different World: Together and Apart..Less of ME and more of WE".

It is an honor and privilege to serve as the principal of Upchurch Elementary. Rich traditions, caring staff members, community partnerships, and dedication to high quality instruction are just some of the factors that have led to the tradition of excellence at Upchurch Elementary.

We, the faculty and staff of Upchurch Elementary School, are dedicated to your child's success. We want to emphasize that we view parents as the first and most important teachers of their children and that we offer many opportunities to strengthen that partnership with you. Please read with your child nightly over the summer. Reading is the key to learning. Your support in making learning a high priority is crucial to your child's success.

Please do not hesitate to contact me at school if you should have questions or concerns. We will transition to summer hours soon but I am always available via email. Thank you for a GREAT school year!
