PTO Co-Chairs needed
The UHS PTO is still in need of After Prom co-chairs for the upcoming school year.
This important event cannot be run without many volunteers and a couple of people leading the way. Thank you for your consideration of becoming a part of a great UHS tradition and the leaders of this event aimed at keeping our children safe and off the roads on the night of prom. Please contact Kim Lauder to express interest or ask questions about the responsibilities involved.

Eligible shows must perform between mid-October and mid-April, with voting taking place soon after. After votes are tallied, schools nominated for Best Musical, Best Play, and Best Song are asked to prepare material to present in front of the entire region during the season's award ceremony, The Cappies Gala.
