Don’t look for big things, just do small things with great love” - Mother Teresa 

A New Year means new 

The Best is still Yet to Come! 

This has been an unprecedented school year.  Thank you, parents, for your support and patience as we move through this school year.  As a school, we have managed to provide instruction online and face to face for all of our West Utica students.  Students are resilient and manage to adapt when there is change.  I have high expectations that we will overcome this adversity and get back to school as we know it.  

It is extremely important that students attend school daily and complete all assignments to keep their skills sharp.  Just a few reminders that will help with student’s progress.  Make sure students log  into their teacher’s  classroom during asynchronous times (this is the time students work independently) and complete all assignments assigned during that time.  It is just as important that students attend school daily if they are face to face or virtual.  Let’s finish strong!
