The Upton PTO held a week-long celebration last week in recognition of Upton teachers and their great contributions to education and the community.  The students and parents had an opportunity to show their appreciation for the hard work their teachers do and the long hours many of them put in.  The PTO organized a “Hollywood” theme for the week,and gave teachers some red carpet treatment.  Parents brought in meals each day for the lounge, and posters were hung on the wall of the famous teachers, as well as, special notes written from the students.  Wednesday, was dress-up day,and the PTO gave away prizes and gift cards to the winning teachers.  Middle school English teacher, Michael Patterson,won the best-dressed award for this year’s contest.  It was a great, well-deserved week for Upton teachers, and the PTO would like to thank it’s volunteers for many hours of work putting this event together, and once again thank the teachers for another great school year!
