A Message From Our Principal

On April 24, we held our third annual Senior Project Board Presentations. Seniors were well prepared with visual aids and physical evidence of their projects. Thank you to our community and parent volunteers who joined teachers in evaluating the presentations. There were many wonderful projects presented.

As the end of the school year draws near, many important events are approaching. Advanced Placement tests begin early in May. The High School Academic Awards are presented on May 8 and National Honor Society will induct new members on May 11. The choir will perform on May 9 and band will have a final concert on May 10.

The graduation ceremony will be May 26 at 6:00 p.m. at the Union Colony Civic Center.

I am grateful and honored to be a part of this caring community of learners known as the University Bulldog family. Thank you for letting us teach your teenagers and best wishes for a relaxing and rejuvenating summer.
