From the Principal

We are now at the start of our last quarter of an incredible school year here at Messmore and what a great year it has been! I am so proud to be able to serve our wonderful students and the entire Messmore community. I have the best job in the world and on a daily basis this is reinforced to me as I see students beam with pride as they show growth in their learning.

The mission of Messmore Elementary School is to provide a Montessori environment that fosters self-motivated, responsible, life-long learners.
Messmore is hosting a Kindergarten Open House on March 15 at 7:00 p.m. for 4-year-old Montessori preschoolers. Utica Community Schools offers all-day Kindergarten at all elementary schools. Registration forms are available at www.uticak12.org. Please bring completed registration forms with you. The open house will give parents the opportunity to learn about our kindergarten, meet teachers and building staff and complete the registration process.

Utica Community Schools is Michigan's second largest school district.   

Student achievement in the district outpaces all county, state and national averages. The district's graduation rate is 12 points higher than the state average and students and staff are regularly honored for excellence.
