News from the DRE

Hello Parents of 6th-8th Graders!

Registration is now available for the Puget Sound UU Middle School Conference!  This is a great chance for our middle schoolers to connect with other UUs their age from around the Sound – and to ease into the youth con experience that many youth find inspiring and uplifting throughout 9th-12th grades. Unlike the high school cons, there is only one middle school con each year, and this one is happening September 28-30 at Camp Sealth on Vashon Island!

This is the first year we’ve been able to offer online registration / payment.  Also new this year: free registration for chaperones!

Click here to register!  The early registration deadline is September 4 and the final registration deadline is September 11.  If you know you are going to attend, register by September 4 and save $25.

If you are unfamiliar with middle school con, please check out this fantastic presentation Margaret Rogers, the DRE from Northlake UU Church, has assembled.

If you have questions you can shoot them to me or Melinda Einander, the Director of Family Ministries at Saltwater Unitarian Universalist Church in Des Moines and the person in charge of Middle School Con this year.  Her phone number is (206) 651-7358 and her email is

Let me know if you need a scholarship – we want everyone to be able to attend without a financial barrier!
