A Message From Our PTA President



Good Morning University Park Elementary!


We are at 4 days and counting until the end of school.  So that can mean only one thing … this is my last PTA update for the year.  I have had the privilege and honor of being your PTA President for the last two years.  During that time many parents have donated their time, talents or money – thank you!  You have made a difference in your child’s education.


Here are just a few things University Park PTA has provided for you and your students:

  • Cirque de Irvine Ranch Family Fun Festival
  • Purchased new 20 tables and 200 chairs for the MPR
  • Purchased a new sound system for the school
  • Purchased the shade structure over the lunch tables
  • Provided Lunch Time Activities (organized games) for students
  • Street Beat assembly
  • Scrooge assembly
  • Bike Rodeo
  • Dine out at Blaze Pizza and Souplantation
  • Coffee with the Principal
  • Halloween Costume Parade and trick or treat event
  • 1950’s school dance
  • Family lunch days
  • Book Fair
  • Ice cream social at Open House
  • Muffins with Moms
  • Staff Appreciation Luncheon
  • Sponsor Irvine Jr. Games
  • Kids Run the OC Marathon
  • Donuts with Dads
  • Reflections Art Competition
  • Astounding Inventions
  • Classroom subscription to Scholastic News or Time for Kids
  • Panther Positive Awards for the PRIDE prize cart
  • Harvest Cup Soccer Team
  • Funds for classroom supplies
  • Funds to purchase books for the Library
  • Donation of teacher wish list books from Book Fair
  • Sponsor of Multi-Cultural Day
  • Sponsor of 6th Grade Graduation
  • Sponsor of Red Ribbon Week

All of this would not have been possible without the tireless dedication of the many, many parent volunteers. 


Thank you!
