Cardinal Head WIN "What I Need"

Upsala Schools grades K-12 are introducing a new program this year called WIN or What I Need. This will give students time to focus on getting help in core classes, do makeup or homework and the opportunity to do enrichment activities.

In the High School there will be a "WIN" period each Tuesday and Wednesday. Thursday will continue to have a period devoted to Reading and Advisory time.
