"I observe that every child demonstrates a comprehensive curiosity. Children are interested in everything and are forever embarrassing their specialized parents by the wholeness of their interests. Children demonstrate right from the beginning that their genes are organized to help them to apprehend, comprehend, coordinate, and employ—in all directions."

Meet our Artist in Residence
December 6, 2018
We are thrilled to welcome our friend Brianne Farley to our community this winter. She normally lives in Traverse City, but is in our area for a few months. We are very lucky to have her teaching two afternoon classes. Brianne is an author and illustrator of picture books. Her debut, Ike’s Incredible Ink, was awarded the Marion Vannett Ridgway Book Award Honor for debut authors and was selected for the Society of Illustrators Original Art Show.
We are in an exciting and important time in the life of Upland Hills School. We are growing as a community in ways that are new and in ways that honor and uphold our past. Upland Hills has always met it’s financial responsibilities and challenges with the ethic of, “Doing more with less.” This careful, conscious and anticipatory strategy has served the school well in times of great abundance and in leaner times.
Today, we are fortunate to be stable and strong financially. Fiscal health and stability allows our community to dream, create and continue to evolve. And it is the community creating the abundance to do so.
The annual fund is the cornerstone of our fundraising program. All gifts to this effort reach into every aspect of life in our school. Your gifts ensure that the children, teachers, family and friends of Upland Hills School will thrive in a love-based learning environment.
We strive for 100% participation from our community. Every gift is received with deep gratitude and honored through it’s careful consideration and allocation. Every single gift makes a difference in the continued growth of our school.
Annual Fund pledges are payable by June 15, 2018. We welcome your tax-deductible contribution by check, credit card, in person or by PayPal.
To find our more about the Annual Fund, please contact our director, Rob Himburg by email or phone: 248.693.2878
