The Uxbridge High School Student Council is hosting a Dodgeball Tournament on Saturday, May 21st at 2 pm in the high school gymnasium. To enter, you need to have a team of 8.  The cost per team is $50.  All proceeds from this event will go to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Sign-ups will be open to students of all ages, faculty, parents, and outside organizations. There is no spectator fee, although donations are greatly appreciated. We will be running concessions at the event. If you have any questions, please contact Sheila Bernard at sbernard@uxbridge.k12.ma.us.

Whitin PTO: 

The PTO will be working with the PE teachers on field day and the 7th grade send off.  PTO will be looking for volunteers to help with both events.  Be on the lookout for more information and how you can help.



Bussing: Please note if a bus has not arrived at the bus stop within 15-20 min of pick up time especially after a storm seek alternative transportation if possible and let the school know.


School nurse information: 

We have found an interim nurse who will be with us starting this week.  I will provide contact information for them once we have finalized the paperwork.  For consistency please continue to direct your calls to Becky Padula at Taft.  Please email Nurse Becky if you have any questions or concerns: rpadula@uxbridge.k12.ma.us
