  • This year, we are going to do Mystery Pals a little differently. You will randomly draw a Mystery Pal and be responsible for giving that person one gift/token/trinket/treasure per month. It can be as simple as a candy bar, a book, something homemade, a picture you’ve drawn, etc. Once your Mystery Pal has been assigned, you will be responsible for making sure their gift gets delivered at least once a month (November-May). We will have a reveal celebration near the end of May. You can be creative with how gifts are delivered and may have friends/family/DRE help with deliveries. Please let me know if you have questions. Remember, all responses (see attached) should be submitted to the DRE mailbox or emailed to dre@uuctc.orgby the 11/4 deadline.
  • If you are a RE parent, please register your child(ren) if you haven’t already:
