Sweetheart Dance on Friday

Our PTA is sponsoring their annual Sweetheart Dance this Friday, May 8, from 6:30-8:00 p.m. This dance has also been called the Daddy Daughter Dance, but we understand that not all children have a daddy living at home or in their lives. This event is for any girl that attends Upton to bring a special person! The cost is $10 per couple and $5 for each additional girl.

Registration for 2015-16 School Year

The completion of back to school paperwork – something that occurs for all students each August - will be moving on-line this summer. The MISTAR Parent Portal will be the point of access families use to complete this process. This increases the importance of making sure that you know how to log in and use the MISTAR Parent Portal. Please contact your child’s school office for assistance.


If you have an incoming Kindergarten student or know someone who does, an enrollment packet can be picked up at Upton or the Administration Building located at 800 DeVillen, R.O. 48073.
