On Wednesday, March 2nd, 21 teams will participate in the Special Olympics annual Polar Plunge in the UTHS pool.  There will be a parade of team costumes and an ice bucket event.  Our UT deans and principals are excited to pick the teams who will experience the chill of the ice bucket. So, please bring your coins and drop them into the buckets for either the Deans or the Principals.  Admission will be $3 and the event will start at 3:30pm.  Your support and contributions go to support UTHS Special Olympic athletes, and we hope to see you there! 

Friday, March 4 is the last day to pre-order a copy of the 2021-2022 yearbook for the low cost of $50. Payment may be made online at or in the General Office.

The cost then increases to $60 and payment cannot be accepted until the books arrive in late May. Save yourself the trouble and get your book ordered TODAY! You do not want to miss out on this COLORFUL memory keepsake.
