Discount Hershey Park Tickets On Sale Until April 7th
The UHS PTO is offering Hershey Park tickets at up to 38% off gate prices until April 7th!  You pay $40 instead of the $65.80 gate price -- that's a sweet deal!
Hershey's Triple Tower is the newest attraction to open this year. Tickets are good for the 2017 summer season. Ticket holders can also take advantage of the FREE Preview Plan -- present a pre-purchased ticket the day before your planned visit and enjoy Hershey Park for 2.5 hours before park closing when the park closes at 10pm and for 3.5 hours when the park closes at 11pm. Even if you don't get a chance to use your tickets this summer, just present them to customer service and pay the difference in price. 
Your purchase will benefit the UHS After Prom because with every 20 tickets sold, the After Prom will receive two tickets to raffle off that night. Since the After Prom started, our District has been fortunate to not have any drinking/driving fatalities on prom night. The After Prom is free to all Juniors and Seniors.
Fill out the order form with your payment and bring it to the Main Office in an envelope marked "Hershey Tickets" no later than April 7th. Make checks out to "UHS PTO After Prom" 2017 Hershey Tix Discount Order Form.pdf

For over 50 years, the Unionville-Chadds Ford Community Scholarship Fund has provided scholarship aid to outstanding graduating seniors at Unionville High School.

The Community Scholarship is a grant of a stated amount of money collected annually from the school community by open solicitation. Its purpose is to award the worthy student who wishes to continue his/her education following graduation from Unionville High School. The grant is for the first year of post-secondary work only and will be applied toward college costs (i.e., tuition, room and board). As many grants will be made annually as the treasury of the Community Scholarship can support. Please consider contributing to the Unionville-Chadds Ford Community Scholarship Fund.


You can have your student drop off the donation to the High School Office in an envelope marked UCF Community Scholarship. We accept cash, change or if you would like, a check made payable to UCF Community Scholarship Fund.
