Principal's Message From Dr. Garry Cameron, Principal Upland High School
Hello Highlander Community,
We had a very successful first day and are very excited to have students back! We are looking forward to another tremendous year for our students. We are here to support your student and to create a school community where all students find success academically, in activities, and socially. Our school is made great through a collective effort from all of us. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your support and partnership.
As your student transitions from summer time to school time I would like to provide some back to school tips for your student. I know many of you already have these conversations, but it helps to have common discussion points.
- The importance of attendance and the correlation with academic performance
- Preparing for timely attendance: 1st period begins at 7:45 am
- Eating healthy and regular meals
- A reminder about school appropriate language
I would also like to share a few highlighted events we have in the month of September. Our Back to School Night is Thursday, September 10 at 6 pm, Homecoming is September 25 at 7 pm, and our Homecoming Dance is Saturday, September 26 at 7:30 pm at the Riverside Municipal Auditorium. This is going to be a great year, and it is my privilege to welcome our Highlander community back for the 2015-16 school year.
