Letter from the Principal

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

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Upchurch Elementary School for the 2019-2020 academic school year. It is an honor and privilege to serve as your principal for the upcoming school year. Since joining the Upchurch family, I have witnessed what makes our school such a wonderful place. 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. Let's work together to make this a successful year for our students. Your support in making learning a high priority is crucial to your child's success.

As the year progresses, please do not hesitate to contact me at school if you should have questions or concerns.
