The UPPA is the place for families with children ages birth through kinder who live within the University Park Elementary School area. We're designed to provide parent education on children's growth and development, socialization opportunities for parents and children, and fundraising support for University Park Elementary School.


  • Bi-Monthly general meetings with exciting and informative speakers   
  • Moms' nights out
  • Age appropriate playgroups
  • UP All Night, a Father & Child Urban Campout at UP! (Our annual fundraiser with proceeds directly benefiting University Park Elementary.)
  • Seasonal children's parties
  • Parents' parties
  • Family events
  • Hospitality and outreach for members in need
  • Community volunteering and involvement
  • Lifelong friendships for you and your child



Help your children meet the children they will be attending Kindergarten with, and enjoy fellowship with area Moms. UPPA Playgroups help make that happen!  Moms and children can get involved right away and start making new friends.  For more information or to join a group, please contact our Playgroup Coordinator. New playgroups will continue to be formed throughout the school year. 

UPPA Hospitality Committee

The UPPA hospitality committee supports UPPA moms who are:

  • Expecting or have a new baby;
  • Dealing with a loss of a family member; or
  • Recovering from a medical procedure

If you would like to help these moms and their families, please join the Hospitality Committee - your commitment can be as small or large as you want-even simply taking one meal a year!

Additionally, we want to welcome each new UP mom with preschool-aged kids to our great community and organization.  If you know of a mom that could use some help, have a new neighbor, or would like to help, please email: The Hospitality Hotline 

Moms' Nights Out & Parents' Parties

Leave the kids at home and meet us for a well deserved night out!  Many times throughout the year, UPPA members get together for an entirely social evening.  These parties and moms nights out are a great way to meet other UPPA members and spouses. 

UPPA Online Forum/Google Group

This member-only message board allows our members to connect and share timely information about our community.  Once you join UPPA, you will receive an invitation to join our UPPA Google Group.
