Message from the Wernham West Centre for Learning

Dear UCC families,

As many of you know I recently returned from my maternity leave and have been spending the last few weeks reconnecting with students, faculty, staff and many of you.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mrs. Barbara Kawasoe for stepping into the role of Director of the Wernham West Centre for Learning in my absence.  Mrs. Kawasoe has done an incredible job of supporting your sons and continuing the work of the Centre in meeting it’s four mandates and she will remain at the Upper School supporting Year 8 students for the remainder of the year.

As we conclude a reporting period here at the Upper School and begin the new year at the Prep School, often this is a time when students and parents reflect on learning and look to create new goals, seek out more support, and begin to make plans for the following academic year.  

As always, if you or your son feels he may benefit from additional support I would encourage him and you to reach out to his teacher and a Wernham West Centre for Learning faculty member if needed. 

I look forward to reconnecting with many of you in the next few months and continuing to support the students here at UCC.
