Love Our Schools Day
Love Our Schools Day has been taking place across Maricopa County for the last three years. Each year this event has grown and schools have received tremendous amounts of support from their communities and have created beneficial relationships that impact each organization throughout the entire school year.

Stay tuned: Gifted programming coming soon! 

Your participation is vital to the success of UPC and to supporting our students and PVSchools. 

Thank you for your support.  If you have any questions or suggestions, please email me at President@pvupc.org.
