WIN "What I Need"
Upsala Schools grades K-12 are introducing a new program this year called WIN or What I Need. This will give students time to focus on getting help in core classes, do makeup or homework and the opportunity to do enrichment activities.
In the High School there will be a "WIN" period each Tuesday and Wednesday. Thursday will continue to have a period devoted to Reading and Advisory time.
Junior Achievement Program
Community volunteers are needed as role models for the Junior Achievement program. The JA program teaches students about entrepreneurship, work readiness and financial literacy through real world experiences and curriculum.
Study Club begins Monday, September 12. If your student needs extra help with schoolwork, has math or science questions, we can help! Study Club is staffed by licensed teachers who are excited to help. We meet after school on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:15-5:00pm (phone ext. 125) in the Cardinal Media Center.
Permission slips are required for grades 4-8 and can be obtained from any teacher or from our school website here. Slips may be returned to the school office or brought with to Study Club.
