From The Principal:

Dear Hornet families,

Please keep in mind Utica Community Schools will continue to message important school-related information such as delayed openings, school closures or transportation concerns through a number of resources, including local media outlets.  We realize texting may be the preferred method for some families regarding UCS updates.  Heritage Junior High School and Utica Community Schools have a service for parents who would like information texted directly to them.  To join this system, please text “Y” to 67587

The Heritage staff would like to extend warm wishes for a safe,  happy and restful holiday season to the entire community.  Classes resume Monday,  January 6, 2020.  Mid-term exams are scheduled for January 15th -January 17th. These are half days of school.  Students will be dismissed at 11:12 am.  Monday, January 20th, is Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and there is NO SCHOOL.  The new semester begins Tuesday, January 21, 2020.  Please mark these important dates in your calendar.

 

Warm regards,

Mrs. Beebe

UCS Vision

All children have the right to a rigorous, high-quality education which meets their individual needs. UCS will respect, encourage and empower each and every student to acquire the necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes to be successful, contributing members of a diverse community and global society.

UCS Mission

We are committed to exemplary teaching and learning in order for our students to be prepared for success in the 21st Century.
We will achieve this commitment by engaging the entire community to focus on each child's achievement, with the expectation that every student will pursue some type of post-high school educational endeavor.

Core Values

  • Every child can learn and achieve.
  • Parents and guardians are partners in the learning process.
  • Being “smart” can be achieved through persistence, hard work and effective effort.
  • Excellence is expected and celebrated.
  • Data is used to guide our decision-making.
  • All employees will exemplify ethical behavior; exhibit a strong work ethic; and continue to develop their leadership, performance and service skills.
  • Technology supports and enhances instruction, business operations, research and communications.
  • The Board of Education, district educators/staff, parents, community members and business leaders must collaborate and work as a team to enhance educational opportunities for student success.
