From the Principal

Happy Holidays! I would like to thank all of you for the warm welcome I have received as Interim Principal at Messmore.  I have spent over 20 years working for Utica Community Schools and have frequently heard about the wonderful students, staff, and parents in this unique community of learners. I am pleased to observe the many diverse approaches to learning that take place daily and to be able to improve my understanding of a Montessori Education.

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.
