From The Principal

Week one is in the books!!

headshotA few first week reminders for parents.  The UCS dress code is not always in line with the modern fashion, but is still our dress code.  The dress code and all student rules can be found in our Student Handbook.  On page 6, under “Dress and Grooming” It covers a variety of topics from offensive clothing to exposed mid-drifts, see through clothing, short skirts or shorts, etc. Please take a moment to review the handbook, as there are a number of changes this year, it’s good to be aware of those items. I’ll review some of those changes in the Chieftain Weekly and in my Newsletter as we go through the year.  

Next Tuesday and Wednesday, we will have a Club and Activities Fair during lunches at UHS.  This is an opportunity for our sophomores, as well as our Juniors and Seniors, to find out about different activities and clubs they can get involved with while at UHS. Students who are involved are engaged. Please encourage your students check out the opportunities for them here at Utica.  

The Athletic Booster meetings are in the Newsletter, but we sent it out without the first meeting which will be next Monday, September 10, at 7pm in the ECC.  You can enter through Main Gym Entrance, Door #5.  Looking ahead to other dates, we have our Open House on Tuesday, September 18th at 7pm.  We will begin in the Auditorium and then head into classrooms! And, before you know it, homecoming will be here.  The game and parade are on Friday, October 5, and the dance is on Tuesday, October 6.  Guest passes for students wishing to bring guest students with them to the dance will be available next week.
