From The Principal

We had another great week that’s in the books!  Some of the highlights included a wonderful Parent-Teacher Conference day on Thursday, senior Sienna Schulz qualifying for the MHSAA State Finals in golf, two program sweeps from our volleyball team, another win for our swim team, JV football continued to dominate on Thursday night, and Utica took the Jonah Cup home against Stevenson in soccer on Monday night.  If all that weren’t enough, the Arrow Newspaper was named a Columbia University Silver Crown Publication, placing it amongst the top student newspapers in the nation! And, our amazing Chieftain Marching Band took their Motown review to MSBOA Festival where they took straight A’s to get a Division 1 rating. It was a great week!
