FROM THE PTO DESK


I wish every one a wonderful Christmas! Cherish every minute and create wonderful memories with family and friends. Let's remember what is all about, being thankful, giving back and the miracle given to us on Christmas Day.
Our family is thankful for all that we have been given and we look forward to a great new year.

To those families that celebrate different holidays, I wish you all a great one and a wonderful 2016.

Have a fantastic time !!

Michelle Reichert

UESPTO Co-President

Hundreds of families benefit from this effort any help you can provide us would be greatly appreciated!!

A MESSAGE FROM THE UEPTO

 
 
 

Dear parents,

Our holiday giving program is in need of many board games, books and outdoor toys. If your class is participating please have all donations in by this Wednesday (TOMORROW)

Each class has a theme for gift giving. If you are not sure what to buy, send in a board game or craft project.

All gifts will be dropped off on Thursday morning to families in need.

Thank you for participating!


THANK YOU!

A heartfelt thank you to Shannon Bellafiore and her helpers for hosting the Elf Workshop last week. Over 60 UE students participated and made unique hand made gifts for someone special for Christmas.
