Board Recognition Month 

During January, Utica Community Schools and all Michigan school districts celebrate Board of Education Recognition month. The recognition program allows us an opportunity to acknowledge the continuing efforts of school board members in providing leadership and
guidance to children in Michigan.

UCS Board members represent Michigan’s second largest school district with a true dedication to the students in our community. Thanks to their leadership, our students are achieving at higher averages than their state and national peers, and UCS continues to be recognized for outstanding achievement and innovative programs.

The mission of Messmore Elementary School is to provide a Montessori environment that fosters self-motivated, responsible, life-long learners.
The NWEA mid-year assessments monitor the progress of each student. The testing will conclude at the end of the month. The information provided assists us in planning the remainder of the year and highlights areas our students may still need assistance. Also, this information will help us predict how our students will perform on the state assessment this spring.

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.
