PRINCIPAL’S CORNER

Goodbye Summer Hello Fall

We are off to a great school year. I am excited about the great things that are happening this school year at West Utica Elementary. Students are excited about being in school and having an opportunity to talk with their friends and teachers.

As a staff we are focused on student learning and social emotional development. It is important that West Utica students are connected to school through positive relationships and a strong sense of community.

Our #1 focus is student achievement with a goal of increasing their academic performance through high quality instruction, high expectations and interventions. Teachers are consistently receiving training to learn new strategies to support student growth.

This is our year to rebound and accelerate.

Dr. Woods



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.
