Principal's Corner


   It is my pleasure to welcome you to Uniontown Elementary School. Our main objective is for all students to learn in a safe and caring environment. We look forward to providing many exciting and rewarding learning experiences for our students throughout the year.  

   This year UES is honored to be in our sixth year as an official “Leader in Me” school and our third year as certified Lighthouse School. The Leader in Me is a schoolwide leadership-development process for both students and staff members-of which The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is a foundational piece. It integrates timeless leadership principles into school culture, driving transformational results.  The Leader in Me is designed to be integrated into a school’s core curriculum and everyday language, and it becomes part of the culture, gaining momentum and producing improved results year after year, benefiting schools and students in the following ways:

  • Helps students to gain the skills and self-confidence to succeed as leaders in the 21stcentury.
  • Improves academic achievement.
  • Decreases discipline referrals.
  • Raises levels of accountability and engagement among both parents and staff.

We welcome family members to be our partners in helping students grow into healthy, happy, and life-long learners. We hope the time you spend at Uniontown Elementary School will be both pleasant and rewarding.  We are excited about this school year and look forward to working with you and your child. It’s going to be a great year.
