Boosterthon starts tomorrow. Please check your child's back packs for information regarding Boosterthon and how to make a pledge. Students run about 30 laps each on October 1st "Run For The Stars" at 2 PM. Parents are welcome to attend and cheer for their UE students. The Boosterthon program runs for nine days during which you will have the opportunity to make pledges. Students will attend a 15-minute assembly each day.  The UE students will have a total of 30 assemblies during this program, PLUS prizes are awarded if we reach our school goal. Please help by submitting your pledges per lap and asking family and friends to support your child.


Assembly topics during Boosterthon.

  •  WIN with TEAMWORK- win together by using others strength. 
  •  LIVE with CURIOSITY- ask big questions and explore the answers to a new world. 
  • SCORE with PRACTICE- get better by trying over and over, wherever you go.
  • PLAY with HUMILITY- show a winning attitude with every victory and defeat. 
  • RIDE with CONFIDENCE- makes a big challenge little by starting small.
  • RUN with ENDURANCE- go a little farther. Strength is on the other side of not giving up.
