Principal Update


The 5th grade gift was presented to University Park last week. We worked very hard to raise the money by selling pickles, popcorn and popsicles after school. We raised $897 for the metal art owl and plaque created by artist Mike Billsing. Thank you to Harris Marks for the donations of the Jimmy John's pickles that sold out quickly!  The owl has a forever home in the front door staircase and everyday will welcome you. We hope the University Park community will remember the legacy of kindness and respect the 5th grade class of 2015 leaves to our school. We thank all of you for your contributions!  (Written by Moudjibatou Alassani and Andrew Rusin)
