Greetings UAS Families

I hope all of you are doing well! It is hard to believe that we are almost done with winter and spring is right around the corner. It has been a long winter and hopefully the cold and snow are behind us! 


Sourcewell also presents teachers in Region 5 with Educators of Excellence Awards. This year from Upsala, Sourcewell has recognized Chelsea Fuchs and Grecthen Schleper as Educators of Excellence. Ms. Fuchs is a second grade classroom teacher and Ms. Schelper is our 7-12 Ag/Tech Ed. Teacher. They will be honored at a banquet in May.  Congratulations to both!

Sourcewell also recognizes students from the Region as well. Two students from the senior class have been selected as Students of Excellence from Upsala. Seniors  Nicholas Kulla and Natalie Wensmann will represent Upsala Schools at a banquet this spring. Congratulations to both Nick and Natalie!
