From The Principal

  Hello Titan Families,

 I hope you had a safe and happy Thanksgiving. It certainly was different this year, but perhaps one that gives us even more perspective on how grateful we are for what we have. Work hard to find the joy in these coming weeks.  Work harder to spread some of it, safely and remotely, to the best of your ability.  And know, that as a grateful principal, I thank all of you for being a part of the Titan family and for giving me so much to be thankful for every day!  Please take some time to express your gratitude for a different person each day who has made a difference in your life! Not only will it bring them joy, but it will likely bring you some as well!

At the end of October, the UCS Board of Education approved the 2021 Gradation Dates, times and tentative locations.  Stevenson High School is currently scheduled to have commencement on Saturday, June 12, 2021 at 10:00 am at the O’Rena at Oakland University. 

Those graduating seniors have the opportunity to be recognized as Superintendent’s Scholars.  UCS graduating seniors are invited to apply for the 2021 Superintendent’s Scholarship awards program. The scholarships are funded with proceeds from the Utica Community Schools Foundation for Educational Excellence and other sources. Online applications will go live on Tuesday, December 1, 2020. Students are required to submit a copy of their high school transcript as well as receive one recommendation from a teacher, school counselor, administrator or non-family member. The individual making the recommendation will need to submit an online appraisal. 

Please encourage students to complete the online application available on December 1 at: or on the UCS home page under “Students” in the mid-menu on the center of the page. The deadline to submit the completed application and appraisal is 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, January 6, 2021. 

Aside from this opportunity, this is a great time for parents to help their students create and reassess their learning environment at home.  We continue to encourage families, to the best of their abilities, to help their student create a space that is free from distractions including TV’s, game systems, and if possible, other learners in the household.  This isn’t easy. I struggle with it in my own household, but anything that can be done helps.  In addition, parents need to actively engage in this process by checking their student’s PowerSchool once a week to make sure they’re keeping up with their studies. Even better, have your student sit with you, go through the work that’s done or missing, and tell you what was expected and what they did so you’re not trying to interpret that yourself. If you need assistance on getting your PowerSchool Parent Portal access, you can follow this link  online and contact the school at 586-797-1900 if you need further assistance. 

Please continue to communicate with our school office about any positive cases or quarantines that impact our students and households.  I know this decision will cause frustration for many of our students and puts additional strain on our parents and families.  I appreciate your continued support and look forward to a better 2021.  

Lastly, the COVID pandemic has changed all of our lives in a multitude of ways, especially for our children. This school year has been a challenge for everyone. The 2021 Ambassador Yearbook staff is doing their best to provide the same full, all-color yearbook for our Stevenson family, despite the obstacles. With that said, we need your help.

Because yearbook students cannot go out into the community and sell advertising due to the pandemic, we are reaching out to our parents and community for help soliciting ads to publish the 2021 yearbook. So many parents have, or know people who have, businesses that would be willing to purchase ad space in the 2021 yearbook.  Plumbing, accounting, construction, painting, handyman, doctors, lawyers, merchants, entrepreneurs are everywhere in our Stevenson community.  Please consider purchasing an ad to help with this endeavor.

The ad size fee chart and contract are enclosed as PDFs.  For ads $300 and over (9 block to 18 block ads), a FREE YEARBOOK will be provided.  If a yearbook has already been purchased and you purchase a 9-18 block ad, a refund will be provided.  

Please consider purchasing an ad for your business to help with the publishing expenses for the 2021 yearbook. If you know someone in your family or withing the community you can pass this information to, please spread the word.  This unique year has caused us to think outside the box to keep things as normal as possible.  With your help, we can keep at least this one school tradition from being another casualty of this very difficult year.  Please see the Ad Block Size Form PDF & AD Contract PDF located under the Parent Quick Links under my “From The Principal message. 

With Titan Pride,
