Drivers will sign a waiver before they take the test drive. The only requirement is to be
18 years old and have a valid driver’s license. . (Only one per household will count toward the

posted May 9, 2017, 11:44 AM by Yvette Perez   [ updated May 9, 2017, 11:44 AM ]

May is Mental Health Awareness Month.  Uvalde County Mental Health Clinic has partnered with the Military Veterans Peer Support Network and Uvalde Independent School District to have a 5K color run designated as the Uvalde County Mental Health Clinic’s Second Annual Mental Health Awareness Run, “Color Me Happy”, on May 20, 2017.  Our goal is to educate the community about mental illness, how and where to get treatment and to ease the stigma associated with mental illness. We want to create an environment where people feel comfortable discussing mental illness without fear or shame.

Uvalde County Mental Health Clinic has been serving Uvalde and Real Counties for nearly 20 years. We provide mental health services for adults and children, along with mental health crisis screenings for hospitalizations. We are currently serving 280 members of our community and provide an average of 250 crisis screenings a year. We offer Mental Health First Aid Training to schools and law enforcement. 

With your help, we will be able to empower our community with the knowledge needed to get help.  Your donation will be used to purchase event t-shirts, awards, and other needed supplies to conduct this community event.  Any remaining monies will be used to help purchase school supplies for children in our services.

Summer Fine Arts Academy 2017!

posted Mar 7, 2017, 1:56 PM by Yvette Perez   [ updated May 1, 2017, 2:15 PM ]

Uvalde CISD School Board and Superintendent have made an extraordinary commitment to enhancing student Fine Arts education by funding the Summer Fine Arts Academy. There are offerings open to UCISD student grades 3-12. We are dedicating our time, money and effort to facilitating the growth of the student artist through education and apprenticeship in their craft. By establishing a safe environment in which young actors, musicians, dancers, singers and visual artists can explore their creativity and hone their craft we expect to see Uvalde students rise to even greater heights not only in their art but in their overall education. Research has shown that a student’s involvement in the fine arts correlates with improvement in attendance, classroom achievement, behavior and state testing results. This Summer Fine Arts Academy is offered free of charge. Free transportation will coincide with summer school days between 8am and 3:30pm. A free breakfast and lunch is also provided to all academy students. Unfortunately a student that does not pass to the next grade level or does not pass their required state tests will not be able to participate in the Fine Arts Academy. They will be required to take other summer school classes. We hope that all parents, teachers and students will make every effort to make sure students pass all their classes and state tests so they can participate in the Fine Arts Academy. Acceptance will be on a first come first serve basis. Turn your forms in early!

-Musical Theatre will provide instruction
in visual arts, dance, voice, and acting through
rehearsal and performance experience for
100 UCISD students grades 3-12. They will
Prepare and perform GODSPELL on
June 29 and 30

There will be auditions held at the Uvalde High School Auditorium and Black Box from 6-9pm on Friday, May 26, 2017 to determine which role is best for each student. At that time parents will be given more information and have time to ask questions.

All Academy Students:
Attendance at all rehearsals and performances is required. All Academy students must follow all UCISD rules and behave appropriately for the learning and performance environment and follow the instructions of the teacher or be removed and not allowed to return. This is up to the discretion of the Academy administrator.
