Thank you to all who attended our PTA meeting this week! Please join us each month as we begin to evolve our PTA meetings to be an experience for families. Our goal is to make sure parents walk away feeling more connected to the school and how they can help their child.

Calling All Creative Parents!

Every year, each UPark grade joins together to create an amazing class art project. These masterpieces are then presented to the community and sold at our annual auction. We are looking for ideas and parents to lead or facilitate these class projects.
The possibilities are endless: painting, transforming a piece of furniture, a sculpture, a mosaic or any creative expression that the whole grade can do (approximately 75 kids).

If you have an idea, a special talent, artful expression, want to lead a class or just learn more, please contact Amy Rogala
