UpROAR Leadership Academy (ULA) is a local, community-based educational environment. We believe schools should reflect the needs and hopes of the community we serve. Community is at the heart of what we do, and our unique classrooms reflect our desire to learn together in a personalized way.
Community is our Everything
Community doesn’t end when summer begins. Quite the opposite. At ULA, we’ve organized a meet and greet for new and returning UpROAR families. With food and fun as the main event -- and also a great set with No Limit Larry. No Limit Larry is a local DJ, motivational speaker and host of morning radio. He had us all laughing and nodding in agreement.
We hosted and joined the “Future of our Community”Panel sponsored by the city of Charlotte. We were joined by community leaders, parents, teachers, and students to discuss ways we can ensure the success of our community and schools. Moderated by our own Ohavia Phillips, this panel offered both free food and free uniforms for any families that attend and join us at UpROAR or the other Charlotte schools that participate. Game on!
Nick Lewis and Star Career-tainment Program led a free summer camp for UpROAR scholars, right on our campus. For the sixth year, this studio theater radio summer camp empowered students to learn about possible careers and passion for entertainment and media. From the Star Career-tainment web site, “The Star Career-Tainment Program is an entertainment and education enrichment opportunity for students ranging from elementary to high school ages to explore personal career goals and interests. The program seeks to empower a generation of students through learning-oriented activities focused on personal development, cognitive enhancement, and the principles of success.” Such a terrific partner for ULA and our scholars!
Athletics for Every Scholar
And in case you haven’t heard, ULA is now officially a part of the Greater Charlotte School Athletics Conference! Our very own Athletic Director, Ms. Heikkila is now the Secretary/Treasurer for the conference. The schools in our conference are:
Bonnie A. Cone
Concord Lake STEAM Academy
Mallard Creek STEAM Academy
Queen City STEM
Southwest Charlotte STEM Academy
Steele Creek Academy
United Community Charter
Our last event for July was our Spaghetti Dinner & Curriculum night. We used this chance to discuss our robust academic offerings while enjoying some tasty pasta. And like our other many events this July, all events were free for all to join, learn, laugh and eat. At ULA, we never stop caring for our scholars and families. That’s why we are so engaged over the summer. Fun, fellowship and family are our motivators and we offer so many exciting options to find one or all three.
And the fun will keep going in August. We are hosting a Kickball Tournament on August 7. We love to see our ULA families and staff having fun together. Whether you want to play or watch, it will be a great event!
We’re enrolling tuition-free for grades 5-8 today! Join our public charter school community!
