You’ll also catch important announcements and details about upcoming events that you need to know about.

The Giving Tree Holiday Project

The holiday season can be a very stressful time for families due to increased financial burdens and high expectations. Student Services is offering an opportunity to reduce such burdens for the University Schools community. 

Student Services is organizing the 5th Annual Giving Tree this holiday season to assist University families in need of support.

For this project, families will create profiles for each child providing age, gender, sizes for clothing and shoes, interests, needs, and wants. Our goal is to simply provide a bit of extra joy during the holiday season. 

Our project anonymously links those who want to contribute with children who would otherwise receive few, if any, gifts for the holidays. This is an opportunity for families needing extra support as well as families wanting to help others and give back to the University community. 

If your family wants to help: Parents/guardians can sign up and select a tag off the Giving Tree located in Student Services in the main building or at the main office in the middle school beginning November 16. Please return unwrapped gifts to Student Services in the main building by December 12. 

If you would like to register your family to receive holiday support: Complete the attached application or stop by the main office or Student Services to pick up an application in either building. Applications were available beginning October 29. Completed applications are due to Student Services by November 15. 

If you would like to help, but do not want to participate in shopping, we are also accepting donations. These donations can be made for a certain individual or given toward a general fund (to help make purchases for participating children). We would appreciate wrapping paper donations.

El Giving Tree Proyectos de Vacaciones

El Departamento de Servicios Estudiantiles está organizando el sexto árbol anual de donaciones en esta temporada festiva para ayudar a las familias universitarias que necesitan apoyo.

Para este proyecto, las familias van a crear perfiles para cada niño que proporciona la edad, el género, los tamaños de la ropa y zapatos, intereses, necesidades y deseos. Nuestro objetivo es simplemente un poco de alegría extra durante la temporada de vacaciones.

Nuestro proyecto vincula de manera anónimamente los que quieran contribuir con los niños que de otra manera recibirían pocos, si alguno, regalos para las fiestas. Esta es una oportunidad para las familias que necesitan apoyo adicional, así como las familias con ganas de ayudar a los demás y dar de nuevo a la comunidad universitaria.

Si su familia necesita ayuda y desea inscribirse para recibir obsequios: a principios de noviembre se enviará información a todos los estudiantes de la escuela primaria y secundaria. Los formularios estarán disponibles para su recogida en la Oficina Principal, la Oficina de Servicios al Estudiante / Enfermera en el edificio principal y la Oficina de la Escuela Secundaria. Esperamos tener un registro en línea también.

Si su familia quiere ayudar: Los padres / tutores pueden registrarse y seleccionar una etiqueta de la Giving Tree se encuentra en Servicios Estudiantiles en el edificio principal o en la oficina principal en la Escuela Secundaria. Regalos deben ser sin envolver a Servicios Estudiantiles en el Edificio Principal el viernes, 6 de diciembre.  

Si desea ayudar pero no desea participar en compras, también estamos aceptando donaciones. Estas donaciones se pueden hacer para el uso de un individuo determinado o para un fondo general (para ayudar a hacer compras para los niños participantes).

Attention HS Seniors and Parents

New Changes with Box Tops

There are some exciting changes with the Box Tops program. No more clipping. No more need to send in Box Tops. All you need is your phone. Download the all-new Box Tops for Education app (available through iTunes App Store and Google Play) and search for University Schools using our zip code (80634.) Shop as you normally would and then simply scan your store receipt to find participating products. The app will automatically credit our school's Box Tops earnings online. Twice a year, our school will receive a check, and we can use that cash to buy whatever we need!

We will still accept clipped Box Tops until they expire. We also send in Morning Fresh Dairy milk caps for money. Thank you for your help!

University Middle School Yearbook

Attention, 8th grade parents! The University Middle School yearbook is creating a page of baby pictures for the 8th graders to show how much they have grown. You can send Mrs. Miles a scanned baby picture in JPEG format via email, or bring one to the front office in the middle school. This is a free service to you, so make sure that you get them in by December 20. We will return all baby pictures to the family. Please let Mrs. Miles know if you do not want us to give them to your child. Please make sure that your student’s name and advisor is on the back of the picture. Thank you!
