Dear Undercroft Families,
We are refreshing our pool of substitutes for the 2019-2020 school year, and our primary source is our community of parents (and grandparents!). These positions are paid at an hourly rate of $12.00 an hour. If you are interested in serving as a substitute for our teaching staff this coming year, please complete the substitute application and background check form. Return them to our office with a photocopy of your driver’s license by Wednesday, July 31st. Please submit these forms even if you served as a substitute last year, so we may update our list of active substitutes for the coming year.
We will provide a brief training on Wednesday, August 7th from 9:00 – 11:00 a.m. All applicants will be expected to attend this training. Please call to RSVP and reserve a space if you need childcare during the training. If you have any questions, please call or email Brooke Kirchner at 918-622-2890 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to hearing from you, and sincerely appreciate the service provided by our pool of substitutes throughout the year!

- Bridging/Graduation Ceremony, Wednesday, May 22nd at 6:00 p.m. – Join us this year at the John H. Williams Theatre at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center as we combine our middle school graduation with our traditional bridging ceremony. Everyone has a part to play in the bridging process as older students welcome and encourage the younger ones. The event will celebrate the passage of our 8th year middle school students to high school, 6th year upper elementary students to middle school, our 3rd year lower elementary students to upper elementary, and our bridging primary students to lower elementary.

The time has arrived for Undercroft’s Annual Spring Bedding Plant sale. Proceeds from the sale will go towards the “greening” of the Natural Playscape. Please find attached an order blank for the available bedding plants. Bedding plants are available by flats only. Please feel free to ask friends, neighbors and relatives if they are interested in purchasing plants through this sale. Additional order blanks are available in the office. Orders need to be turned in by April 8th 2019. Please have checks made out to Undercroft. Plants will be distributed on Monday afternoon, April 19th. If your child attends aftercare, your order will be left in front of the building for you to pick up. In honor of Earth Day, April 22nd, why not consider creating a habitat for butterflies and hummingbirds or simply add color and beauty to your yard with flowers from the Undercroft Spring plant sale.
On behalf of the UMS children, thank you for supporting our efforts to make the Undercroft campus a well balanced environment for all living things.

fUNDERaiser tickets are now on sale! Go here to make your purchase today in support of Undercroft’s BIGGEST fundraiser of the year.
The fun is happening on Saturday, April 13th at the Silo Event Center. Tickets are $50 and include: heavy hors d’oeuvres, three exciting game tables, a photo booth, a rockin’ dance floor, and the opportunity to participate in our wine pull, silent and live auctions, and more. You won’t want to miss this party!
We have added a new feature this year that allows you to sponsor the attendance of a guide at the event! Our staff are always welcome at fUNDERaiser, so the “Sponsor a Guide” ticket lets you give back by offsetting this cost. Purchasing this ticket is also a great way to participate even if you cannot attend the event.
And that’s not all! For just $1, you can enter to win the opportunity to name fUNDERaiser’s signature cocktail. Name it after yourself, your favorite casino pun, or anything else you can dream up. Just like a high-stakes game of Texas hold ‘em, there’s no limit to the number of chances you can buy! Just secure your opportunity by April 8th.
For event tickets, the “Sponsor a Guide” ticket, and the chance to name the signature cocktail, visit: www.biddingforgood.com/undercroft/fUNDERaiser19.
Thank you so much for supporting Undercroft, and I can’t wait to celebrate with you on April 13th!
