Saturday, June 4th is our annual UDA Gala. This is our biggest fundraising event of the year and we are hoping to devote the proceeds to raising our beloved teachers' salaries. Please help us by reaching out to businesses to solidify donations in the form of gift certificates, products, or items to be auctioned off at the event, cash sponsorship, or purchasing tickets to attend the UDA Foundation's Spring Gala. The class that brings in the most donations will receive a party of their choice and a tile to be displayed among our other generous donors acknowledging their fundraising efforts. Donation letters and forms can be found in the front office or HERE, so please help us hit the pavement and make this year's Gala the best one yet!
