Annual Walk to School Day 2014

University Hills' students celebrated Earth Day by walking to school together. Students met a point in the neighborhood and all walked together, reducing their negative impact on the earth by not using vehicles to arrive at school.


March is Reading Month

University Hills' staff celebrate their love of reading during March is Reading Month 2014 by dressing up as one of their favorite characters in literature. The staff and students have been having a month-long celebration of reading with various activities, such as hosting "Mystery Readers", having a comfy, cozy day in PJs, an all-school "read-in" and many more! Keep on reading, UHills!!!


2nd-3rd Grade Math Pentathletes

University Hills 2nd and 3rd grade math pentathletes made a wonderful showing at the regional competition! These students have been training for 5 very challenging, math-related games for the last couple of months and their hard work paid off. They competed against other students from around the region on Saturday, March 22 at Farmington High School. This endeavor requires that they learn the game, all the rules of the game and develop strategies to best their opponents.

These students brought home two golds, one silver, two bronzes and two honorable mentions to a very proud University Hills!


Spirit Council Raises $1,000 for Children's Heart Foundation

University Hills' Spirit Council sponsored a coin challenge that resulted in the group being able to gift the Children's Heart Foundation of Michigan with $1,000 for medical services and research to help children that are born with heart problems. This dedicated group of students continues to go above and beyond in their efforts to serve their community!


Spirit Council Creates "Birthday Bags"!

The Spirit Council of University Hills Elementary rallied its community to collect cake mix, frosting, candles, balloons and party favors to fill birthday bags for the clients of Lighthouse of Oakland County. These community-minded students gathered to decorate and fill 138 gift bags that were then donated to help children that might not otherwise be able to celebrate their birthdays with these provisions. University Hills is so proud of how these students continually reach out with helping hands into the community!


University Hills Spirit Council Helps Meals on Wheels

Nearly 70 third, fourth and fifth graders gathered in December to create holiday cards to be sent to our troops and to compile "Snowman Soup" (aka hot cocoa with the trimmings) packets for Meals on Wheels. This is just another example of the fine work that these community-minded students accomplish!


University Hills Celebrates Reflections Winners!

University Hills celebrated the nationally-sponsored Reflections Fine Arts Competition with an evening reception and gallery walk showing off all the students' beautiful and wonderfully creative art. There were entries in music composition, visual art, film making, poetry and literature. All of these students are to be congratulated!


Spirit Council Helps with Community Raking

University Hills Spirit Council, a group of community service minded third through fifth graders, gave some of their time after school raking for community seniors. This group works together to make a difference in their community through public service. This picture is one of many groups of students that moved through the community, with parent volunteers, helping their neighbors. University Hills is very proud of these students and this organization!
