We think the students, staff members, and families of University Schools are pretty great! And if you don’t already know that for yourself, stop by here often where we’ll share the many successes and wonderful experiences of our school community. You’ll also catch important announcements and details about upcoming events that you need to know about.
We need help from our parents! Please help us support students in 2019.
With your help, we want to recycle 100 yard signs into inspirational U statements that we will place all over the University Schools campus for students to see when they return to school in January.
Anyone who would like to help have a positive impact on our student body can help with this project. We will spread several work sessions out so that the time commitment can fit most schedules. To sign up, please contact Mrs. Van Beber via email or at (970) 576.3935.
At the Family Center, we aim to provide resources, education, and support for families who may need our services. The Family Center is here to engage, empower, and encourage students and families to be successful in their schools and community.
We currently have 4 different programs to help support our students and families:
- 21st Century Grant Program — We support the creation of community learning centers, provide academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours, and help students meet state and local academic standards in core academic subjects.
- Families in Transition (FIT) Program — We support students in transition (McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act). We help students with enrollment, academics, transportation, access to meals (both during school and on the weekends), mentoring, tutoring, and advising.
- Migrant Education Program — We work to support high-quality education and to reduce disruptions and challenges for children identified as migrant. We ensure students who move across states do not receive penalties towards graduation or academic learning. Additionally, we help students identified as migrant to be college and career ready.
- Newcomer Program — We support students and families who are new to the United States within one year. We provide assistance with enrollment, academic support for students and teachers, ongoing communication with families, and orientation classes for families.
The Family Center has CTS Language Link, which is phone line interpretation and in-person interpreters and translators for schools within district 6. If a teacher needs an in-person interpreter or translator to communicate with the family, just contact us and we will be happy to share their contact information with you.
We have a Weld County Medicaid specialist based out of the Family Center. They are at the center on Mondays and Thursdays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
We also provide Cooking Matters classes for our parents. We provide this through Weld County. In these classes, parents learn how to cook healthy meals on a low budget.
Family Center ensures students and families in our district 6 have the resources and support they need so their children can have a promising future. Feel free to contact us for more information on any of these programs at (970) 348.4700.
