Dear West Utica Community,


It is hard to believe that we have already been in school for a quarter of the 2017-2018 school year.  In this short time we have participated in many wonderful educational opportunities.  The entire West Utica Staff is thrilled with all of the progress experienced during our first card marking period and are excited to tackle the challenges of the remaining school year. 

With the summer behind us and winter right around the corner we must begin to adjust to the colder weather.  Students need to remember to pack their jackets, gloves, hats, and scarves because we will be going outside.  When children are in school they are working very hard.  They need to get outside and participate in physical activities.  When they come back to class they are mentally rested and once again ready to learn.  We will be going outside for recess everyday.  The only exceptions are when it is rainy or the temperature falls below 10 degrees, including wind-chill.  Parents be sure to watch the weather and dress your child appropriately.

A quality education requires a strong working partnership between home and school.  Parents play an integral role in assisting student learning and we welcome your input.  Together, we create the momentum that drives continual improvement in our school by building a structure for collaborative learning based on high expectations and student needs.  If at anytime you have questions or concerns about our school please stop by and let me know.
