bannerHoops for Heart / Jump Rope for Heart:  We are so proud of our elementary and middle school students!  They have shown true thoughtfulness for others by raising over $12,000.00 for the American Heart Association.  They took the challenge to help others by raising money but also they worked hard at improving their health by jumping rope and playing basketball.  They truly deserve a big shout out!  Jump for Heart (elementary grades), will be held on Friday, March 7th.  View photos for Hoops for Heart (middle grades).  Proud of our Caring Bucs!


Many thanks go to the students, parents, faculty and staff and ETSU volunteers who worked on Saturday at our Fall Beautification Day . Over 70 folks participated and many cleaning projects and sprucing up activities took place. The event was spearheaded by Kim Allison, Andrea Lowery, and Mahua Chakraborty and the Academic Support team who worked diligently to make it a success. It was also supported by the University School Foundation and the SGA. Plans are being discussed for a similar event during the spring and we hope that more of our University School community will participate. Again, thanks to all for their hard work and their commitment to University School. 
Dr. Doyle Brinson, Director.
