Message From the Principal

Dear Bluford Families:

I am delighted to be a part of the Bluford School community for the third year. One of my goals
for UBCS is to create strong connections between the home and school and where all staff
members are committed to developing the whole child. In addition to building strong
relationships, it is particularly important to me to make sure your child and you feel safe at
school. We believe in fair and consistent student discipline that first teaches our scholars how
to behave but also holds them accountable for their misbehavior. I value both of these
characteristics and am excited to move Bluford along the path of excellence.

One of the most important aspects of my work as Bluford’s Principal is making academic gains
through teaching and learning. We safeguard instructional time and use research and data to
improve our teaching practices as well as implement effective strategies to instruct diverse
learners. Most of my time is spent supporting teachers and promoting scholar growth.

I have been a champion for children for over 19 years and I feel very lucky to be the Principal of
Universal Bluford Charter School. Thank you for entrusting your child/ren to me. Here’s to
another successful school year.

Principal Gary-Nelson
