From the Principal

We would like to thank our community once again for its support of the 2018 bond issue. Over the next five years, bond issue projects will impact West Utica, our feeder schools and every school in the district.
 
To provide updates to the community, the district has created an informational page that reports the status of the projects. The site is located at http://www.uticak12.org/2018bond/updates. If at any time you have a question regarding the projects and our school, feel free to contact me either through e-mail (Alisanda.Woods@Uticak12.org) or school office (586-797-6600).

West Utica Elementary and Utica Community Schools have a service for parents who would like information texted directly to them. The texting service provides school news and announcements, district information such as emergency school closing situations, or updates issued from UCS departments, such as transportation. To join this system, please text “Y” to 67587.

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.
