From The Principal

Please mark the following important dates in your calendar:

August 20,2018 12th Grade Registration
8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.
11th Grade Registration
12:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.

August 21,2018 10th Grade Registration
8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.
9th Grade Registration
12:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.

It is my expectation that every student attends registration so we get off to a smooth start to the school year on Tuesday, September 4, 2018. At registration students will have the opportunity to get their student ID and pictures, their class schedule, their lock and locker assignment and pay for
all fees including their Homecoming and Senior All Night Party tickets.

For parents with an incoming freshman,please plan to attend our Freshmen Orientation Night on Thursday, August 23rd at 7:00 p.m., with your student in the PAC. This is a night for students and parents to become familiar with our school and for students to meet their upperclassmen mentors.

The Utica Community Schools Board of Education voted unanimously (7-0) in mid-August to place a bond proposal on the November ballot to address safety and security, technology and infrastructure improvements identified through the district’s strategic, long-range facility improvement program.  Voter approval of the bond proposal has been structured to keep the tax rate at or below the current level.  An insert in our newsletter explains the Board's action and outlines the purpose of the bond proposal.  This proposal will impact every UCS student and school.  We will share more about the bond proposal when school opens.  For more information, you can contact me or visit
