Our Mission

The Upper Lake Union Elementary School District is committed to its mission of educating each of its students to his or her maximum potential. The District feels that this level of excellence can best be achieved by a mastery of the essential skills by all students, particularly in the areas of reading, writing and mathematics. The District also is supportive of the fine arts, humanities, technology and athletic programs, and recognizes their contribution in the development of the total person. Our goal is to develop students who are responsible, educated, and prepared to make decisions in our democratic society.

Message from the Principal

Welcome to the 2013-2014 School Year!  We are looking forward to building a strong partnership between school and our families.  We are starting by making sure communication is clear and frequent to ensure we are meeting the needs of all of our students.

Our new website is one way we will be communicating with families.  In addition, our middle school students will be working on a monthly newsletter that will be posted on the website and available to all families who do not have internet access.

Watch for upcoming events where you can find out how to be involved in your child's education!
