Good afternoon Titan families, 

It was truly a great last two weeks at SHS!  We watched our class of ’21 march through halls one last time, we collected nearly 500 laptops from seniors last week and distributed graduation tickets. 

In a week of big announcements none was bigger than our changes to the commencement exercises.  As the state of Michigan has followed CDC guidance and drastically changed the outdoor gathering guidelines starting June 1, we will have one commencement exercise for all students at 10 am, Saturday, June 5. All graduates received their 6 tickets last week after turning in their laptop computers, books, and attending to any fines on their account. Doors for the ceremony will open at 9 a.m. and all seating is general admission, despite seat and row numbers on the tickets. 
 
Exam week will have A Day on Monday, B Day on Tuesday, and then our exams. Exam days will all be half days ending at 10:24 a.m. 

Here is that exam schedule: 

Wednesday, June 9: 1st and 2nd Hour Exams 
Thursday, June 10: 3rd and 4th Hour Exams
Friday, June 11: 5th and 6th Hour Exams

As we wrap these last two weeks up I want to remind our families that Utica Community Schools has an expanded repertoire of summer advancement options through Community Education our Summer School program.  This bridge to a successful 2021-22 school year is open and registration is available by following this link . Summer learning opportunities are voluntary.  Courses that reinforce student learning from the past school year are offered at no cost. Summer offerings also include traditional credit recovery courses or opportunities to opt out of future secondary courses. These courses may include software licensing and material fees. Please evaluate the opportunities available and maximize them! Financial assistance will be available to anyone who needs it.  

This summer we will have four Meet Up & Eat Up pickup locations where children 18 years and younger can pick up 7 days of meals.  Additionally, 1-day meal packs will be available daily at Roberts Elementary.
