From The Principal

 Lietz PictureDear Chieftain Families,

We had another great week at the U as we close out Quarter 3 of the school year!  Report cards will be sent out electronically at the end of next week.  That means we have a little less than 10 weeks of school left.  For our seniors, even fewer still!  That means its crunch time and we get to hold onto our socks as we make the final push!  Thank you for all the parental support as we went into the SAT, PSAT10 and WorkKeys this week.  It makes an incredible difference.  

Next week we start the MSTEP. This last phase of the three-part Michigan Merit Exam (MME) evaluates students in Social Studies and Science.  This test is very different than the SAT for students.  It is online and taken in the ECC and the Media Center and it’s both untimed and randomized so every student doesn’t have the exact same test.  There are two sections of social studies and two of science.  So, the students will test over two periods in the AM or PM over April 15 – April 18.  Posters have been put up around Utica High so students know where to go and when to test!
