Thanks to all the parents who made donations to the teacher/staff appreciation breakfast that occurred last Wednesday on May 3rd. Yuko Kanazawa, UCHS PTSA VP of Programs, took charge and created a most wonderful appreciation breakfast for the teachers and staff of UCHS. With the help of UCHS PTSA members, Teri Meeks, Viki Beaton and others (as well as students for the cleanup afterwards), they helped transform the Activity Room into a full breakfast spread, BINGO hall, and beautifully decorated tables (flowers, balloons, etc). Each teacher/staff received a UCHS logo emblazoned coffee mug as well. Parents generously donated gift cards and prizes for games that everyone participated in during breakfast. We’d also like to thank Snooze in LaJolla for generously donating the breakfast items.
All student clubs should consider applying for a UCHS PTSA grant. Details can be found on our webpage for Student Club Grants, but here is an infographic to show the key steps. Fall applications are due no later than November 11th!
Please join us at the UCHS track for the Hoka Postal 2-Mile Championship Saturday October 29th from 3:30-8:30pm! The UC Cross Country team is proud to be hosting this Flagship San Diego event. 33 schools will be competing, with over 900 athletes and lots of enthusiastic fans. It’s an amazing chance for our runners to race under the lights with some “bitchin” music. Don’t miss the hilarious school mascot race! This year’s event will feature a live Webcast and special appearance by Olympic silver medalist Leo Manzano, flying in from Texas to be at the event! Each race heat gets progressively faster as evening approaches and San Diego has some of the fastest runners in the state. Come out and cheer on the Cents! Fun for the whole family!
A big thank you to all you donated items and especially Jennifer Almond, Teri Meeks, Kennedy Selleck, Tasha Forbes, Marie Byrd, Jack Weaver, and others who were integral in pulling it all together for a successful teacher/staff appreciation breakfast on August 24th to kick start the school year.
If you are interested in volunteering, whether it be one hour for the whole year at a specific event or several times in the year, the PTSA would love to have you on board. Remember, the more parents, teachers, and students who help, the more we can do and each of us can gain from giving back to our UCHS community. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get on our volunteer list and tell us if there is a specific way you can serve.
