From the Principal!

Greetings West Utica Families,

 Its hard to believe that we have already been in school for a quarter of the 2018-2019 school year.  On November 5th West Utica Elementary celebrated our Veterans by participating in our 30th annual Veterans Day celebration.  I am very proud of the respect and integrity that our students displayed during the celebration.  It was a great event and an honor to host. 

With 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 every day.  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.    

I would like to thank all of our volunteers that helped out at this year’s Trunk or Treat.  This year’s event was a great time for everyone. 

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.
