Be Rich 2021

Get your whole family involved in Be Rich!

An opportunity for your kids to GIVE, SERVE, & LOVE

We’re asking UpStreet families to donate NEW children’s-sized coats for our nonprofit partner, Friends of Refugees.

Many refugee families do not have weather-appropriate clothing, and Friends of Refugees wants to make sure each child at Indian Creek Elementary has a coat this winter! 

Now through October 10, bring in any NEW children’s-sized coat (medium and larger sizes are most needed), and start a conversation with your child about how to see the needs of others and how your family can work together to help!

What's the Word Poster

Learn UpStreet's Verse of the Month for September

Make sure your child get this month's verse sticker for UpStreet’s What’s the Word verse poster. This poster is a fun, engaging way your child can keep God’s wisdom in front of them all year long.

Don't have a poster? Your child can get their poster on UpStreet. Then hang it in their room or another place in your house where your family can encourage one another to learn these verses together. Each month, your child will get a new verse sticker that helps complete the poster over the next 12 months.

By the beginning of next school year, your child can have 12 verses memorized that they will carry with them everywhere they go.

Verse stickers and posters available on UpStreet!

Kathleen Edelman's book "A Grown Up Guide to Kids' Wiring

A Grown-Up’s Guide to Kids’ Wiring

Make sense of the kids around you.

No matter the age or stage, kids are… hard.

But understanding their wiring might change the way you look at (and speak to) every child that crosses your path from this day forward.

Communication expert Kathleen Edelman has spent three decades helping grown-ups make sense of the kid around them. The result? Better behavior; better relationships. In this book and the six videos that go along with it, she’ll do the same thing for you and the kids in your family, in your classroom, or on your team.
