The Beauty of Harvest Fest
Thanks again to everyone involved in Harvest Fest 2013! The beauty of Harvest Fest is that it is truly a student-produced event.  The teachers provide rehearsal time and give some feedback along the way, but it is the students themselves who choose the songs and acts, take precious time during recess and lunch to practice and plan, create the flyers and invitations, and add the finishing touches.  

In case you weren't able to attend the event (or would like to see it again), the video is now available to view on our private UE page.  If you would like a digital copy for yourself, you can email us and send in a 1GB flash drive.
Enjoy the show,
Seth (and the UE Team)
