Kindergarten Jamboree is happening this next Wednesday March 15!
UJA Parents, Our Learning Fair is on schedule to happen this Thursday (March 9) at 6:30. Looking forward to seeing our students share what they have done. There will be no general announcements so simply visit your child's classroom and make sure to check out what some of the other classrooms are doing as well. God bless, Rick Nelson
Grades 7-9 Parents, Due to the hazardous winter weather conditions expected in the Tahoe area this weekend and into Monday and Tuesday, along with our concern for the safety of our students, the ski trip scheduled for this coming Sunday through Tuesday, February 26-28 has been postponed. We are rescheduling the ski trip to March 12-14. Thank you for your understanding and flexibility. God Bless, Rick Nelson
UJA Family, We currently have no power at the school. Also, road conditions this morning could prove to be hazardous. For these reasons Ukiah Junior Academy will not be in session today, Friday, February 24, 2023. Stay safe. See you Monday. God Bless, Rick Nelson
We enjoyed the snow while it lasted, too bad it has pretty much all melted on campus now :(

Campus Clean Up and Barbecue! This Sunday from 8-12 Ukiah Junior Academy will be having volunteer campus clean up. Teachers and staff will be here with church and school volunteers getting our campus ready for the start of school on Aug. 17. There will be indoor and outdoor tasks ready for your help. Tasks from general classroom sprucing up to active tasks like cleaning out gutters or putting together a new playground structure.
