From the Principal!

On behalf of the West Utica Elementary staff, I would like to welcome you to the 2017-2018 school year.  I hope everyone had a restful summer and is ready to hit the ground running for an outstanding year of learning.  The staff and I have been diligently working on implementing, creating and revising our learning systems so that all of our students will have an outstanding school year.

As we enter the school year it is important to keep focus on building a strong future for all of our students.  No longer will our students be competing for high paying jobs with only the students down the street.   They will be in competing for jobs with students from every part of the world.  It needs to be the first priority of all of us to make sure that our students will be ready to succeed.

The number one indicator of a child’s future success is a child’s academic ability.  This ability is not something that is set in stone.  Learning is not something that is given to some and taken from others.  Learning is earned by hard work and dedication and it is something everyone can achieve. 


West Utica Elementary School will provide each student with the highest quality education and create a passion for learning, empowering each student to contribute positively to our global community.
