You are invited to the Volunteer Breakfast/PTO Meeting
Friday, April 26th at 9:15 a.m!
UE teachers graciously provide a very nice breakfast for all
parent/grandparent volunteers as their way of saying "thank you" for all
that you do. We would like to make sure this event is well attended as
the teachers really make a huge effort for this breakfast.
If you have volunteered on a committee or PTO event, served as a homeroom
mom or a committee chair, or donated items for class parties or school
events, please plan on attending!!!

Parent Input for Class Groupings, UES 2013-2014
Go to to fill out a quick questionnaire.
The pages of the calendar are turning quickly. We are about to begin
arranging student groupings for the 2013-2014 school year. Your input is
among the many factors we carefully consider when forming class groups for
the coming year.
I invite you to please consider the following prompts. Your input will be
shared with the current grade level team teachers and among those of us
helping with class grouping decisions. The input we've gotten from parents
in the past has provided valuable insights and information. Please know
that as we make decisions regarding class groupings, I will not honor
requests for specific teachers. This survey will be available until April
26, 2013.
Continued thanks for your partnership and support,
Clif Beaver
