Kellog's Free Book Program
Upsala Elementary is participating in the Kellogg's Free Book program. Collect the codes on specially marked Kellogg's products, send them to Wanda Erickson at the library (or bring them to her at the public library) and we will redeem them for free books.
The early childhood years from birth to the start of kindergarten are an important time of rapid learning and growth. Early Childhood Screening is a quick and simple check of how your child is doing at age 3 1/2. It identifies, at an early stage, possible health or learning concerns, so that children can get help before starting school.
Upsala offers ECS 2 times a year. The Fall screening is scheduled for Thursday, October 30th at Gethsamane Church. Qualified children receive a mailing. Please remember that ECS is required by the state for kindergarten entrance. Please call Rita Herbes at 573-2175 for more information.
If your student needs extra help with schoolwork, has math or science questions, we can help! Study Club meets after school on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:00-5:00 pm in the Cardinal Media Center.
Permission slips are required for grades 4-8 and can be obtained from any teacher or from our website here. Slips may be returned to the school office or brought with to Study Club. *Study Club is not held on grade 5-12 Parent-Teacher conference nights.
