Welcome to Upson-Lee Pre-K

Upson-Lee Pre-Kindergarten provides innovative and fun educational experiences that help develop the intellect and the imagination of four-year old learners. The program is designed to develop pre-academic and social skills that will allow these students to succeed in Kindergarten and throughout their educational careers. ULPK students learn to become independent, self-confident, enthusiastic learners.  

Upson-Lee Pre-K is housed in a beautifully renovated building that was originally the James R. Atwater Science Building of the Thomaston City School System. The building consists of six classrooms with twenty-two students per class, a cafeteria, and a large auditorium. All classrooms have learning centers designed to promote various developmental skills in seven areas: Language and Literacy; Math Development; Science Development; Social Studies Development; Creative Development; Physical and Health Development; Social Emotional Development; Approaches to Play and Learning.    

Parent involvement in the Pre-K experience is encouraged through Parent Orientations, Parent Workshops, Parent Fairs, Student/Parent Talent Night, Student/Parent Thanksgiving Luncheon, the VIP Reader program and more. ULPK provides a happy and loving first-year experience at school.

March 3, 2020
On Monday, March 2, Governor Brian Kemp confirmed the first two cases of coronavirus within the state of Georgia. The Thomaston-Upson School System continues to be vigilant and proactive in our efforts to keep students and staff safe at school. We are closely monitoring information from the Georgia Department of Public Health (GA DPH) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak that originated in China, and we want to remind you of CDC recommendations for protection against viral infections:

  • Staff and students should stay home when sick.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or the inside of your elbow.
  • Wash hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with 60%-95% alcohol.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects.

Parent Survey

The Georgia District Review for Thomaston-Upson Schools is a voluntary process conducted by a team of Department of Education specialists designed to examine the instructional practices of the entire district.  The goal of hosting the review is to positively impact student achievement by coordinating the improvement efforts of the district with the various supports that the Department of Education offers districts across the state.
