Welcome to our new and returning families!

 

Welcome back! We hope you all had a great break.

We would also like to welcome those of you who will be joining the UTS community in the fall. There are so many programs and events to get you involved with the school at a level that suits you.

We have opened the application process for next year's UTSPA Executive positions. The deadline is May 4. This document will help you get familiar with the different roles and responsibilities of the UTSPA Executive. If you do not have the time to sit on the executive, but still wish to volunteer and serve the school community in other capacities, you can sign up for the Parent Volunteer Group (PVG).

We are very excited to continue to develop and expand upon our UTSPA early internship initiative this year, which you can learn more about in this video, along with our strategic alliance with the Wellness team at UTS to ensure students are leading happy, healthy, stress-reduced lives. Also, watch for the announcements of 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 order to help make it an exciting adventure for students. A group of parents, led by our PVG heads, has already started the party planning on a big welcome bash, which is set to take place on early registration day (August 30) at 30 Humbert Street.

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)
