Happy Winter Break Chieftain Families! 

Though we are still a couple weeks from the start of the next decade, the 20’s are almost upon us!  I’ll begin by wishing everyone a very happy holiday!  It’s a busy weekend with Hanukkah starting on Sunday night, Christmas on Wednesday, Kwanza on Thursday and of course New Years the following Tuesday.  We have a lot to celebrate!  I hope you are all able to spend time with loved ones and find enjoyment.  As we enter what is a joyful holiday season, I ask that we all remember the holidays are not always a time of celebration and some of our Chieftain community struggle through this time of year. Be an open door and open mind to those who may need it over the holiday season.   

As we wrap up 2019 and excitedly enter 2020, we have a great deal to be proud of at Utica High!  As we leave December on a high note with athletic victories, thousands of dollars raised for charities, families adopted for the holiday and incredible performances from our band, choir and thespian troupes, we are truly grateful for our talented students and supportive families.  Last month our award-winning journalists travelled to a national conference in Washington DC and just this past weekend, our Thespians showed their prowess as they earned 15 superior and excellent ratings and brought home over $1.1 million dollars in scholarships from the state festival!
