Introduction

Uncas Elementary School is located in a vibrant rural community.  At Uncas Elementary we believe we "Learn Together."   Recognizing that home, school, and community are a powerful team, we work together to support each other in creating an atmosphere that values education and promotes development of the whole child.  As a school community, our focus this year is developing our students' ability to use technology in a creative and collaborative way.  Inquiry learning, character education, and differentiated learning are also important aspects of our students' daily education.

Uncas Elementary has a dedicated Parent Council that is instrumental in supporting school projects and cultural program delivery. The Parent Council provides students with a wide variety of experiences in the fine arts and supports all activities throughout the school year.   This vital support from our parents enables the staff to provide students with a well rounded program and numerous opportunities for student growth.
