Open House!

We are excited to invite you to attend the annual UHS Open House will be held on Thursday, September 22, beginning at 6:30 p.m.

With many new faces in the building, we know that the night will be informative, particularly as our students now take seven classes, and where many of our curricula are undergoing changes. With teachers focusing on curricular adaptations, the use of Google classroom, and implementing other technologies and instructional tactics in the classroom, Open House becomes an opportunity to learn what your students will be doing in all their classes. Teachers will also let parents know the best way to communicate with them.

Having moved Parent Conferences to the fall, instead of March, and with the number of new teachers we have hired, Open House also allows parents to connect names with faces, to support at home what sort of work is being done in the classroom, and to understand teacher grading practices, which are sometimes different from discipline to discipline.

The evening begins at 6:30 with a 15-20 minute presentation in the auditorium from school administration, and then parents will spend about ten (10) minutes in each classroom with teachers. The night concludes around 8:30.

We will also have information tables in the main foyer with some other details that parents may find helpful from some parent and community organizations.

We hope to see many of you there!
