Heads Up

Welcome to Heads Up, your one-stop source for news about your son’s upcoming activities and events.

Welcome from the Prep Parent Organization

Dear UCC parents and guardians,

My name is Olga Tchetvertnykh and I am your incoming Chair of the Prep Parents Organization (PPO). On behalf of the PPO, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all new and returning UCC families. We are delighted that you are a part of our wonderful UCC community.

The PPO is a committee of parent volunteers whose mission is to foster community spirit, maximize parent engagement and support the College’s strategic directions through social and fundraising initiatives. We provide a feedback loop between parents and the College. We hold monthly meetings where we report, plan and collaborate in support of our mission.

You can find more information about the PPO on parents.ucc.on.ca website under Get Involved tab.

Volunteers play a vital role in the UCC community. Volunteering at UCC is one of the best ways for parents to feel “plugged in” to what’s going on at the College. Volunteer roles range from one-hour commitments at specific events, to longer-term commitments that stretch over the course of the school year. No matter your schedule, we can find a role where you can make a difference, form new friendships and have fun!

This summer, when you receive your copy of the Prep Family Handbook (hardcopy for new families, electronic for returning), you’ll also receive your copy of the PPO Volunteer Handbook that outlines the ways in which you can get involved. We encourage you to review the Volunteer Handbook and then email our volunteer co-ordinator at volunteercoordinator@uccprepparents.ca indicating your areas of interest.

Have a great summer with your family and we look forward to seeing you in September for the start of another fantastic year at UCC!
