Letter from the PTO Co-Presidents

Hello Underwood Families,

As the school year comes to a close, we would like to acknowledge and thank the teachers, staff, volunteers and parents that have come together and really stepped up to help our students through this very uncertain time. Your participation and support now and throughout the school year is what makes the Underwood community such a special one! 

Thank You Principal Harold
We would also like to send a heartfelt thank you and well wishes to Principal Elaine Harold as she transitions out of her role as interim principal at Underwood. Her leadership, hard work, and commitment to the Underwood staff, teachers, students, and families throughout the school year and particularly during this uncertain time is very much appreciated. If time allows, please show your appreciation before June 18th. 

  • Email (from you and/or your student): Snap a photo of your student holding a drawing or letter by your student and email it to Principal Harold with a note of appreciation from you or your student.

Thank You Teachers + Staff
The Underwood teachers and staff have continued to work extremely hard during this uncertain time. Please consider sending your student's teacher an email note of thanks before the school year ends.

A Note from the Underwood FORJ Committee + PTO

Please click on the link below to view a note sent to the Underwood Community on June 3rd with racism resources for families.

A couple of Underwood families have organized a small, family-friendly, peaceful Black Lives Matter protest every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 5:30-6 PM on Tremont Street between Park and Waverly. All are welcome. Please remember to maintain a social distance. Bring your mask and a sign. Chalk for sidewalks is also welcome!

Summer Reading Resources

Teachers at Underwood have started a folder of read alouds that promote conversation about race and empathy which is available for parents to select from. This allows parents to have some choice over how to talk about being anti-racist with their children and, it offers the equity piece of families getting quality reading materials in a time when spending is challenging and libraries are closed.
