Grade 7 Orientation Night Next Wednesday!
Next week is our grade 7 orientation night for parents. We look forward to connecting with families and students from the Class of 2028 on the 22nd, beginning at 6:00 p.m. Plan for a couple of hours, as we will spend time introducing our programs, student organizations, athletics, and programmatic offerings. There will be time for questions with school counselors, administration, and department leaders, and we will outline what grade 8 will look like for students as they transition from Whitin. We look forward to seeing you!

Grease is a turbo-fueled nostalgic musical road trip through the joys, relationships, and dances -- literally and emotionally -- of the students of Rydell High in 1959. Come share the excitement of new love, shiny cars, future dreams, and best friendships as “We Go Together” from those “Summer Nights” “Hopelessly Devoted to You”. and so much more! We go together is absolutely right as the UHS Drama Club has a cast and crew sixty members strong! They are directed by Mrs. Kathleen Penza and Ms. Mary Mangnall, with a great deal of assistance from Ms. Sue Hirtle. The production is also collaborative effort between several departments at Uxbridge High School including Performing Arts, Visual Arts/Graphic Design, and Technology and Construction. The annual musical is truly a school-wide effort!
Contact the Uxbridge High School office to reserve tickets. Tickets are free but required for admission. They will be available to the public starting March 6.
