From The Principal: Antionette Hamilton     

Dear Patriot Families,

 The Utica Community Schools Board of Education voted unanimously (7-0) in mid-August to place a bond proposal on the November ballot to address safety and security, technology and infrastructure improvements identified through the district’s strategic, long-range facility improvement program.  Voter approval of the bond proposal has been structured to keep the tax rate at or below the current level.  An insert in our newsletter explains the Board's action and outlines the purpose of the bond proposal.  This proposal will impact every UCS student and school.  We will share more about the bond proposal when school opens.  For more information, visit


Mrs. Antionette Hamilton,, Principal

A big thank you to everyone that supported our Jets fundraiser on October 11th.  We raised over $100 from pizza sales!
