From The Principal

Dear Chieftain Families,  
We are finishing our second week of Semester 2.  As we get into the second semester, I want to make sure you have time to meet new teachers and help your students make correction early if necessary or stay on track if things are going well!  As such, we’ve scheduled our Winter Parent-Teacher Conference for Thursday, February 27, 2020 from 4 – 7 pm.  That is the week after our Midwinter Break, the rush toward Spring Break, SAT week, Honors Nights, Senior Meetings, and the rest!  

We have a lot to be proud of at Utica High School heading into our second semester.  Based on the first seven semesters of high school, we have 44 students who will be honored as Valedictorians with a 4.00 GPA or higher at the 2020 Commencement in June and another seven who will be Salutatorians with a 3.99 GPA. In our class of 451 we have 195 students who are Cum Laude (3.5) or higher, and 153 students who qualify as UCS Academic Scholars with a 3.67 GPA or higher.  That’s impressive work Chieftains!
