UMPS Cares: Little Smiles Fundraiser. Little Smiles is a volunteer driven, non-profit 501(c)3 children’s charity. Their mission is to help heal hearts and create little smiles by providing gifts and fun activities to children impacted by serious illness, homelessness or tragedy. With the guidance of local professionals such as doctors, nurses, child life specialists and social workers, they strive to help kids escape their unfortunate circumstances, even if only for a short period of time. Faculty, Staff and Students are asked to wear PJ's and donate a $1 to this cause.
Our students still go out for outdoor recess when air temperatures begin to change. Please be sure to dress your child according to the weather - coats, mittens, scarves, hats, etc. Please click on the bold tagline above for procedures to follow if school is delayed in opening, is closed for the day, or is closing early for the day.
