From the Principal

We have a new math curriculum! Mastering math is not just about knowing the numbers. It’s about looking beyond them to under-stand how and why they work, and learning to ask the questions that lead to a thoughtful, informed approach to solving problems. The new curriculum materials and resources promote a deeper understanding through an inquiry-level approach that skillfully sup-ports our Montessori classrooms. In Montessori elementary, the child’s own questions provide the basis for exploration of the world. The new math curriculum provides students with concrete materials and resources that raises student ownership of their learning through pathways and choices. Your student’s teacher will be sharing further information about the new curriculum.
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.
