Hello UE families,
As many of you know, next Friday, November 11th is Veteran's Day. Here at UE, we will have our annual Veteran's Day Celebration where we will honor the veterans that our very own UE families have chosen. We are looking for your help to make their luncheon special for them. Please use the sign up genius below and consider making or purchasing something to supplement the breakfast and luncheon provided for them to enjoy courtesy of the PTO.
Perishable items can be dropped off the morning of November 11th before 9:10 am. Any non-perishable items can be sent in prior to the day of the event.
Thank you for your consideration and support in honoring our veterans!
FOCUS presents How Does Your "Executive Function"?
FOCUS is proud to announce a new webinar for parents called How Does Your "Executive Function"? to take place on Wednesday, November 30th from 7:00 - 8:30 PM. Perk Musacchio, M.Ed. and Educational Consultant will present on this topic.
Last minute run to the store at 9 PM to get a poster board for a project that is due tomorrow? Forgot to hand in homework that you watched get completed? Is it a case of can’t or won’t? Many parents ask themselves this very question when it comes to the behavior of someone they know (and love). Trying to parent a child whose executive function skills are not fully developed and definitely not performing efficiently can be very frustrating. Come learn what you can do to encourage these skills so that you (and your child) won’t be frustrated.
We hope you join us! Please Share!

The Coin Collection Drive is Happening at UE!
UE is holding a coin collection drive now to November 23rd to benefit "Blankets for Buddies," our school Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service Project and the "Kindness Fund."
All of the proceeds from the coin drive are going to be used to help families in need and to purchase the materials needed to make special fleece blankets that will be donated to kids with long-term illnesses at Nemours Children's Hospital.
Please send in those coins!! Each grade level will compete to fill a jar with as many coins as possible!
The grade level with the tallest amount of coins at the end of the first collection period, ending on November 10 will win a special prize, and the grade level that raises the most money by the end of the coin drive on November 23rd will earn a movie party!
Reach out to Mr. D'Esposito with any questions: email@example.com
