From The Principal

Last week, we had a successful showing for our Fall Parent-Teacher conferences.   Thank you to all of the parents that were able to make it out.  If you were unable to make it to conferences, not to worry.   Please reach out to the teachers and arrange for a phone conference or an face-to-face conference if necessary.

On Saturday, October 12th, the ladies of UAIS took on the ladies of IAM in the annual Powderpuff game.  This year, UAIS hosted the event at Stevenon's Runkel Field.   The Phoenix of UAIS came out with a win, for the second straight year, with a final score of 16-0.  Way to go ladies!!  The UAIS cheer squad also made some lasting impressions with their extraordinary halftime performance.

On Monday evening, Utica Community Schools honored the district's AP Scholars at the board meeting.  This year, UAIS had 21 students honored for their achievements.  Congratulations to each of them.

This Saturday, October 19, 11th graders have the opportunity to take the PSAT/NMSQT test.  This test is administered at the home high schools.  Students that had registered by the deadline already received their corresponding letters and instructions as to where to go when they arrive at the high school.  Best of luck to all of you testing on Saturday.

Also this Saturday, October 19 is the 2019 UAIS Homecoming.  The dance will take place at Shelby Gardens.  The event goes from 6-10  pm.  Dinner and dessert are provided.  This year the theme is "A Night On the Sea".  We look forward to seeing everyone having a great time together.

A reminder, November 5th is Election Day.  There is NO SCHOOL for students on November 5th.  The staff will be participating in professional development on this day.

Finally, UCS has published the graduation dates and times for the Class of 2020.  UAIS will hold graduation on Tuesday, June 2, 2020 at the Henry Ford II Performing Arts Center.  Graduation will begin promptly at 7:00 pm.  Additional details about graduation will be released in the Spring.
