Upton Update: Week of December 8

From the Desk of Mr. Grzywack

Dear Families,

New Newsletter Format!

I am trying something new to make my weekly message look a little nicer. I hope you enjoy this format!

Parent Teacher Conferences

Last week, we had our last night of Parent Teacher Conferences. I am hoping all of you had an opportunity to meet with your child's teacher or teachers to discuss his or her academic progress. If you were not able to attend, please contact your teacher to arrange a time to meet.


I would also like to thank our PTA for providing the staff with dinner on our last two conference nights. Your generosity really made a wonderful difference!

PTA Holiday Shop

The PTA Holiday Shop is scheduled for this week Wednesday and Thursday (Dec. 10 & 11). Your child should have brought home information on this event. Part of the packet included an envelope for you to put a check/money in so that your child will have an opportunity to shop. Please fill out the "Gift List Planner" side of the envelope so the helpers know who your child is shopping for and the amount that should be spent on each person.

Late Start Wednesday

This Wednesday, we will be having another Late Start for Staff Professional Development. The teachers will be reviewing new typing programs that your child will be using this school year. The first bell rings at 9:20 a.m. with school starting at 9:25 a.m.

3rd Grade Music Concert

Our 3rd graders will have their vocal music concert on Thursday night at 7:00 p.m. The concert will take place in the gym. We hope to see you there!

The PTA Ornament Fundraiser is this Friday, December 12, from 6:00-8:30 p.m. The cost is $10 per child. Pizza, soda/water, and a cupcake will also be for sale for $2.50.
