Senior Portrait Update Class of 2018

The information related to the Lifetouch Senior Portraits has been updated.  Senior portraits will be taken on the following dates:

September 12, 13, 14, and 15, 2017

Photographers will be available from 3pm to 8pm in the Cafeteria LGI.  If your senior has not had their portrait taken yet, they will be scheduled for an appointment on one of the above dates.  An appointment postcard will be mailed to your home.  This is also a chance to have portraits re-taken.  If this is an initial sitting, a $5.00 fee will be charged.  This portrait allows students to be pictured in the yearbook with their class and also is used for a student photo ID.  Students are not obligated to purchase photos, but may do so after viewing proofs on line.

Letter from the Co-Presidents

Dear UHS Families,

We hope you are enjoying these final days of summer vacation. As the 2017-18 school year quickly approaches, we wanted to provide an update on the new eNews communication system.  As luck would have it, we have already discovered some issues with the system.  A few families have reported difficulty opening electronic documents.  We are currently investigating the problem and hope to have it fixed shortly.  For now, we want to be sure everyone has this year's PTO Membership and Directory Form (due September 8th), the current list of PTO Committee Chairs,  and an updated PTO school calendar.  Each of these documents is attached as both a link and an attachment to this eNews document. 

Please note that although you may have received these documents previously as hard copies in the mail or electronically via the links, the original PTO calendar contained an incorrect date for Back To School Night.  This event will be held on Thursday, September 14th and NOT on the 15th as originally listed on the calendar. We apologize for these issues and thank you for your patience as we continue to make you and your family our priority.

PTO Welcome Letter

Dear UHS Families,

We hope you are enjoying your summer. It's hard to believe that the 2017-18 school year starts in a few weeks!  This is the inaugural edition of our E-News using the School District's new Swift K12 messaging system. You will be receiving more information about this new system in the upcoming weeks.  The PTO will be sending out E-News generally on a bi-weekly basis, with more frequent editions if necessary.  The new messaging system will help you manage these emails.

We need your help throughout the year in order to make our events successful.  We can't do it without you! Please sign up by returning the attached Membership and Directory Form (click here). The due date for the Directory is September 8th. Attached is a list of PTO Committee Chairs for the 2017-18 school year (click here). There will be times when you will be asked to sign up for an event with Sign Up Genius, such as for our Welcome Back Teacher Luncheon described below. For a 2017-18 PTO calendar, click here.

Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to working with you throughout the school year!

Best regards,

Ann Ferentinos & Luci McClure
