Campus Clean Up and Barbecue! This Sunday from 8-12 Ukiah Junior Academy will be having volunteer campus clean up. Teachers and staff will be here with church and school volunteers getting our campus ready for the start of school on Aug. 17. There will be indoor and outdoor tasks ready for your help. Tasks from general classroom sprucing up to active tasks like cleaning out gutters or putting together a new playground structure. Our Home and School will be providing a barbeque lunch afterward (chefs Pete and Jeni Bushby will make it worth your while!). Come for the morning, come for an hour, or come for lunch! We would love to see you, work with you, and share a good meal in the shade of the playground trees.

Today was the last day of the school year and we ended it with a big party! Thank you for all the parents and family who joined us for our year-end extravaganza! We had an all-grade kickball game, bubbles, races, and even a basketball game between the basketball team and the staff! We finished it all off with a "water balloon fight, pizza, and shaved ice from Sugar Mama! What a fun way to end the year. We will miss you all over the summer, and hope you all have a fantastic break! See you all next year!!
