Welcome to our new and returning families!

 

Well, we are back to it and we are looking forward to another exciting year!  We want to extend our very warmest welcome to everyone, especially our new parents and students.  As a parent at UTS you are automatically a member of the UTSPA and we urge you to join us as often as you can for the informative General Meeting events and various social and educational events that are planned with you  and your children in mind throughout the year.  

 

If you have an interest in becoming more involved and learn what it may look like to participate on the Executive, we recommend you consider joining our Parent Volunteer Group (PVG).  The PVG is a sub-group from our parent body who may not have the time to sit on the executive, but wish to be called on for various events at which parent volunteers may be required, whether it be focus groups, debate tournaments, music nights, parent coffee, open house or various social events, just to name a few.  If you want to learn more, be sure to join us at either one of our two PVG meetings on September 12, 2017 to see if this is for you.  It is a great way to meet more parents who are looking to become more engaged in the UTS community and the lives of our children.

We are very excited to continue to develop and expand upon our UTSPA early internship initiative this year and our strategic alliance with the Wellness team at UTS to ensure students are leading happy, healthy, stress-reduced lives.  We will also be launching a few new initiatives including a new buddy program for F1/M3 incoming parents as well as regular workshops on topics of interest to our parent community. Finally we are committed to implementing projects for transitioning to our temporary UTS home in the future in order to help make it an exciting adventure for the students.  We hope you will join us whenever you can and invite you to ask us at any time about being a part of the UTSPA.

 

Sincerely,

Helen Sava and Flora Chen (UTSPA Co-Presidents)
