Assembly this Friday

Friday afternoon at 2:00 p.m., Ms. Paula & the Candy Bandits will be here to perform some of their songs! This energy filled assembly will serve as a celebration for our students and introduce them to our ROCK Bands! ROCK Bands are brand new this year and will be used to teach students important character education traits (such as Responsibility, Open Mindedness, Cooperation, Kindness, and Self-Control) and provide another caring adult for your children. They will meet once a month. The ROCK Bands are multi-aged, which allows children to meet students from different grades and learn from each other. The students will remain in these same ROCK Bands throughout their years at Upton.
