A Message from the PTO President:
On behalf of the PTO, I would like to welcome you to University Academy Charter School. University Academy has a history of parent/teacher participation and because of this dedication, our school is truly an amazing place to both learn and grow. There are many different ways you can participate at University Academy that will both directly benefit your child and the school as a whole. I look forward in meeting you, and I am available for any questions or concerns you may have.

BOOHOO YAHOO BREAKFAST
August 17, 2018
Boohoo/Yahoo breakfast—so named for kindergarten parents’ typical reactions to their child’s transition to elementary school—is an easy one to host on the first morning of the new school year. New and returning parents will appreciate an opportunity to gather once they drop off their children. A light breakfast can welcome everyone and foster a sense of community from the get-go.
