From The Principal

Dear  Chieftain Families,


May ushers in two seasons at Utica High, AP Testing Season and Awards and Recognition. The second half of those is often typified by awards banquets and Senior Honors, which have started and continue through the month. But, I would like to start by recognition of our incredible teachers and staff, without whom, none of this would happen. May 1 – 5 is Teacher Appreciation Week around the nation and here at Utica High. Our teachers go to incredible lengths to ensure that your children have the best experience possible while at Utica High. They’re not only the masters of their discipline but the kind nurturers who see our 1400 students through trials and tribulations every day. From our counselors and
support staff to the classroom teachers who work their day in school but spend countless hours in the evenings, on their weekends and all summer long prepping, grading, and perfecting their profession, thanks just doesn’t seem good enough. Nevertheless, thank you! I make it a yearly habit to send a letter to former teachers of mine and colleagues to let them know how appreciated they are! I implore you to take a moment and say thanks to one of your teachers or one of your student’s for the incredible impact they have made.
