Life at UPWS

The community is a key part of the Urban Prairie experience.  You are joining an active community that supports one another and the school itself. 

Community Connections is an organization of parents, guardians, and family members that coordinate volunteer opportunities and classroom assistance. These efforts support the school’s administration, community building and parent education; and foster communication among families and the school’s governing bodies, including the Board of Trustees, faculty and administration. 

Interested in getting more involved in the life of the school?  The Community Connection has a wide range of opportunities!

Whether you are a parent, guardian, caregiver, or friend of the school, we could use your helping hands and heart! Contact community connections to see how you can get involved.
