Share Your Urbandale Pride: Yard Signs
As we consider all of the changes and new routines we’re all adjusting to, the one thing that remains constant is our Urbandale community pride. This is why the Urbandale Education Foundation (UEF) has partnered with Plaza Printers to create yard signs that recognize our remarkable Urbandale High School Class of 2020, our dedicated teachers, and our resilient students. Yard signs will be available to proudly display during Teacher Appreciation Week (May 4 – 8) and beyond!
Purchasing a sign will enable you to not only show your Urbandale spirit, but support the Urbandale Food Pantry and the Urbandale Education Foundation as a portion of every sign purchase will directly support both organizations ($4 will support the Urbandale Food Pantry; $4 will support the UEF). The Urbandale Food Pantry provides food assistance to those in need and the Urbandale Education Foundation provides student scholarships and classroom grants throughout the Urbandale Community School District. The Urbandale Alumni Association and Urbandale Dollars for Scholars are also part of the UEF.
Online ordering is available now through May 14. Signs ordered by 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, April 28, will be delivered to you on Sunday, May 3 (please check your email for more information). Signs ordered between April 29 – May 14, may be picked up at Plaza Printers on May 21 (Note: Plaza has a drive-thru pick-up window for your convenience.). All orders must be placed by May 14.
Join us in honoring and supporting our senior class, our students, and our teachers by proudly displaying yard signs as a heartfelt reminder, just how very much, #WeSupportU!
Sponsor A Senior Fund
If you’d like to make a donation that would help support the purchase of a “Class of 2020” yard sign for a graduating senior who would like a sign but may not have the ability to purchase one, please click here to be connected to the “Donate” page. You will add your donation amount within the “UEF General Fund” field and in the “Comments” field you will enter that your donation is to be directed to the “Sponsor A Senior Fund.” The total cost for a “Class of 2020” (no name customization) sign is $22.40. The total cost for a “Class of 2020” (with name customization) sign is $27.75.
If a senior would like a sign but may not have the ability to purchase one, then accommodations will be made to get the donated sign to the student. Please know, we cannot share the name of the student that your donation supported. If more donations are made than signs distributed, donations will go into the UEF General Fund which is used to support classroom grants throughout the district. Your donation will still make a positive difference for students in the Urbandale Community School District!
