Dear West Utica Community,


Greeting West Utica Families,

 The holiday season is the perfect time of the year to take a break from our busy schedules, take a deep breath, and think about the many wonderful things that encompass us all.  It is a time to reflect and to be grateful for all that we have to share. 

 Winter weather is here and will be here for sometime.  As long as it above 10 degrees we will be going outside for recess.  Please keep this in mind when you send your child off to school.  Coats, hats, gloves, scarves, and boots need to be worn to protect your child from the elements.  In the event that the temperature does fall below 10 degrees, we will be having inside recess.

 On December 15th from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. we will be hosting our annual PTO Holiday celebration.  All families are welcome to attend.  Our PTO will be sending out detailed information shortly.

 I would like to wish everyone a Happy Holiday Season.

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
