Secrets of a High School Parent

Worried about your middle schooler’s transition to high school? Worried about your transition to high school? Not sure where to drop off or pick up or at what time? Curious about how things work at Upper Arlington High School (even if your child is a current student)? New to town or to UA public schools?

Join the Upper Arlington High School PTO for “Secrets of a UA High School Parent” – a lively hour of Question &Answer – on Monday, February 29th at 7:00 p.m. at the UAHS West Cafeteria. All you always wanted to know but were afraid –or didn’t know – to ask. Bring your questions and our panel of knowledgeable High School parents will answer as many questions as they can.

Also, plan to join the UA High School PTO that night to stay connected to the High School and other parents with rising freshmen! It will be the best $25 you spend!!

See you there!
