Parent Volunteering with the NSU University Family Organization (UFO)

NSU University Family Organization (UFO)

At NSU University School, we have a very active and strong parent organization known as the NSU University Family Organization (UFO). Parents of all enrolled students are automatically members of the UFO. Our mission is to provide support, spirit and services to NSU University School, its students, and their families through fundraising events and volunteer coordination.

We organize numerous exciting happenings throughout the school year for events such as our Annual Holiday Boutique (a one-day shopping extravaganza), Bake Sales, Book Fairs, Lower School Bingo Nights, Athletic and Fine Arts Events, Career Connections and Junior Achievement and so much more!

The UFO currently supports two fundraising programs which benefit our community. Please click here to start shopping and raising money. In addition, we collect box tops in the Lower School lobby on an ongoing basis. Your participation is greatly appreciated!

There is a meaningful way for every parent to be involved in our community and we would not be the successful organization that we are without the parental support we receive school wide. If you should have any questions or need more information about the UFO, please feel free to contact me via email: or call 305-335-9577. I would love to hear from you!

Stacey Fisher, UFO President
