HELP - Volunteers Needed for Art Gala
Volunteers are still needed to make the Art Gala a success.  Please sign up to help with some facet of the show and support the second largest fund raiser for the UHS PTO.  We particularly need adults to help direct teams of students during show set up. (Diagrams and directions for set up provided).  You don't have to be an artist or be artistic to help!  Please check out the sign up genius and get involved for a couple hours to help make the show run smoothly.  Many hours of hard work by committee volunteers have already been put into the show - but your help it needed now to make it all come together. 
The link to the sign up genius is below:
