Dear Utica Elementary Middle School Community,
Welcome back to another year for promises to be fulfilled. Preliminary data shows that we made huge gains on our state assessments. This would not have been possible without the outstanding faculty and staff, tremendous parental support, and exemplary instructional programming that exist at Utica Elementary Middle School. We foster a challenging learning environment with high expectations to deliver on the Promise of Utica.
We will continue to provide a rigorous curriculum delivered with innovative instructional strategies that will ensure student achievement and growth. A safe and nurturing environment to develop positive self-esteem will be a top priority by all faculty and staff members so that all learners can obtain their full potential.
We encourage your active involvement in our school. We are designating 2019-2020 as a Year of Impact. We encourage you to consider what your impact can be.
We appreciate your support and view that the education of your child must be a cooperative effort between the home and school. Please feel free to contact the school should you have a concern, suggestion, or question.
On behalf of the outstanding teachers and staff, I welcome you to Utica Elementary Middle School.
Will Smith, Ph.D.
