  • Stars for Cars available for purchase at UPES 
    Stars for Cars was started by Jake Gallin after hearing Mrs. Obama speak about Blue and Gold families in January of 2011.  A Blue Star signifies that there is a family member who is serving in the Armed Forces.  A Gold Star signifies that a loved one died while serving our country.  
    Jake's goal was to have more of the community recognize and honor these families so he created Stars for Cars and sent letters to school principals across NYS asking them to make an announcement honoring those families on certain days.  Stars for Cars now sells White 5 1/2 " magnetic stars to be placed on cars which cost $10 each.  Proceeds from the stars goes to the USO.  
    The stars say "We support Blue and Gold Military Families" and have a little blue star and a little gold star on them. Please stop in the office if you would like to purchase one.  We can and will order more if there is a desire. Thanks for supporting a great cause!

  • Have you read any good books lately?
    Reading is fundamental - we all know this. But talking about reading can be just as important to building excitement and appreciation for the written word. Find some time at home to talk to your children about books that they're reading - and books that you are reading!
    Two minutes around the dinner table can spark years of inspiration in your young readers, and as little as fifteen minutes of reading a night can have a dramatic impact on your child's ability to read, write and remember!
