There will be children's crafts provided in the art room where children can create story bags to take with them. We would like to welcome families and friends to come see what our high school students are learning in the classroom. When you arrive on campus please be sure to pick up a map. As you navigate through the building, please feel free to use any of the exterior doors to get from wing to wing. This will help with overcrowding within the building. **Parking** Please park in parking spaces ONLY. DO NOT PARK ON ANY GRASSY AREAS DO NOT PARK ALONG THE ROAD IN FRONT OF THE SCHOOL DO NOT PARK IN ANY DRIVING LANES Once the parking lot is full traffic will be directed to park at the middle school and a shuttle bus will run between both campuses.
Congratulations to UCA 8th grader, Eleanor Shropshire-Smith. She was recognized as 1 of 16 students that will have their artwork hanging year round in the passage way between the General Assembly building and NCDPI in Raleigh. Randolph Co. Representatives: Pat Hurley, Allen McNeill, and Senator Jerry Tillman stopped by to meet Eleanor and view her work. Eleanor and her family also got a great history lesson upstairs as they looked down into the House and Senate. The red carpet was also opened for them to take photos .....which apparently they only do for very special occasions. Eleanor was presented with a sketchbook and certificate. Her work was framed for hanging and on display for everyone enjoy. UCA is very proud of your awesome work!
PAWSitive Pups Steam Class organized a Pet Food Drive for dogs and cats of Randolph County! Food donated went to support the Randolph County SPCA in filling their pet pantry. The SPCA pet pantry provides temporary assistance for Randolph County residents in feeding their pets and supplies food for the feral cat colonies that are part of the Trap-Neuter-Return program. PAWSitive Pups delivered the dog and cat food to the RCSPCA and donated $50 on Flex Day, Friday, March 22nd. Thank you to those that donated to the pet food drive!!
