Thank you Senator Holtzclaw for your generous donation to support literacy at University Place!

Our scholars had a blast eating cookies and dancing their hearts out for reaching their goal during the second semester. 

We had an amazing turn out of families and volunteers! Our scholars had access to free coats, toys, hats, mittens, and hygiene...
Look at all of those toys!

Thanks to UAH Hockey for hosting a coat and toy drive for University Place!

We had a great night learning to read!

We really enjoyed having our parents join us for Thanksgiving Lunch.

We love to celebrate when we reach our goals!

We are excited to see our parents, grandparents, and guardians at our monthly Parent Parties where we present parent education...

We had so much fun at our Back to School Rally!! Thanks to all of our parents and students that participated!

All school supplies, including backpacks, pencils, scissors, glue, etc. will be provided by the school during the 2015-2016 school...
