Be Green with UPark

Click here for an update on our classroom compost and recycling program as well as our lunchroom waste stations. 

The UPark Green Team is looking for parent volunteers! Please contact Judy Cardenas at to help out this year. We will continue to have Waste Free Wednesdays as well as Zero Waste Party Kits that can be reserved for classroom events. There will be more information to come!

Also new this year, find our Student Green Team member application in the Neighborhood Center section of our website after the August 28 Enrichment Fair. We would love at least 2 students from each class to become a part of the Green Team, working on projects that reduce waste and create sustainability.

UPark Band

If you are in 4th-5th grade, don't miss the opportunity to join the UPark Band! No experience needed. You could play the flute, oboe, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, french horn, trombone, tuba or percussion!  Join us for fun and exciting classes, before school on Mondays/Wednesdays for beginning band and Tuesdays/Thursdays for Intermediate Band from 8:00-8:50 a.m. Wake up your brain with music! Scholarships are available, so plan on making music with us all year long! Our program is thriving with over 70 children who perform music in the community at Coffee House Night, with the DU Basketball Pep Band, flash mobs, presentations at the Music Educators Conference (CMEA) at the Broadmoor and the DPS Citywide Honor Band. 

You will have the opportunity to try all the instruments and find your perfect match at  Band Night on August 29th at 6:00 pm in the UPark Auditorium. Intermediate (returning band students) are not required to attend band night if they have registered on line, but are always welcome to attend and leave after the opening presentation/registration.  We can't wait to see you there!
