Spring is in the Air

We are into the last 11 weeks of the 2021-2022 school year! We are continuing to learn tons of content every day. Students are growing so much during this time of year. We are encouraging our students to read every day. We are focusing this month on fostering a “Love for Reading”. West Utica’s K-2 students are reading “A Boy Called Bat” by Elana Arnold. Grades 3rd-6th are reading “Restart” by Gordon Korman.

During this time of our 3rd-6th grade students are expected to take the M-STEP. I believe our students will be successful when they take this state assessment. Be sure students are practicing nightly by completing homework assignments and task assigned by their teacher. We are always thankful for your partnership to ensure your child received an exceptional education.
