Message from the PTSA President

On behalf of the Executive Board, I want to extend a warm welcome to everyone as we start the 2020-2021 school year!  I hope everyone enjoyed a safe and restful summer.  Despite this ever- changing landscape, one thing for certain is that the University High PTSA is here for you. 

 

Whether you are a parent, teacher or student, in the Traditional model, Hybrid model or Irvine Virtual Academy – we got you!  We’re here to represent and support you every step of the way. 

With social distancing and everyone starting the school year remotely, it’s important to stay connected.  One way is by joining the PTSA and supporting the UHS community. 

The UHS PTSA funds numerous programs that promote the educational excellence we’ve come to expect here at University High School.  Whether through student activities or programs like Reflections or Mini Grants, the UHS PTSA is committed in augmenting our classrooms, athletics, and art programs through technology, equipment/supplies and moral support.  Your support is vital to our success!  Here is the link to sign up:

Our first PTSA general meeting will be held virtually on Tuesday, September 15th at 6:30pm.  Our principal, Dr. Astor, will be the speaker and will provide updates on the new school year.  Online meeting invites will be sent out to all Uni PTSA members prior to the meeting.  We hope you can join us!

PTSA meetings are held the third Tuesday in September, November, January, March and May. Each meeting provides the latest UHS updates from our students and Administrators and an opportunity for members to talk, ask questions and share stories and concerns. While our PTSA events and activities may look different this year, there’ll be many opportunities for parents, teachers and students to stay involved.  Please check the 2020-2021 Calendar for upcoming events.  

Families interested in being connected to others within your student’s grade can join their class specific email distribution list.  Families may receive information regarding upcoming events, announcements, reminders, volunteer opportunities and class specific information (e.g., Grad Night, Freshmen transition tips for Uni, etc.).
