 Good afternoon Titan Families,

We’re through one of the longest stretches of the school year; start of school through Thanksgiving. I know the kids are getting worn down, but it sure feels great to have had such a great start of the year.   We need to finish the first semester strong!

Below is the exam schedule:  All exams need to be taken on these dates.  There are no exceptions.

Exam Dates: December 17, 2021 – Hours 1 and 2 (1/2 day)

                      December 20, 2021 – Hours 3 and 4 (1/2 day)

                       December 21. 2021 – Hours 5 and 6 (1/2 day)

 Please continue to review with your student the UCS High School Credit Review rules and procedures which have been changed significantly over the summer. In short, it starts by saying that a student has a responsibility to attend, be on time and prepared for each scheduled class. On Page 4 it continues to say that when a student nears or is at 10 absences (any combination of absences or tardies) will meet with their Associate Principal and parents will be notified. At 11 absences the student will enter Credit Review and can restore those credits by making up the lost time for the classes via a contract made with their associate principal. You now have 4 weeks left to make up time lost. 

If they do not meet the requirements of that contact, they will receive an F for the course.  This cannot be recovered short of testing out, taking the class via scheduling, credit recovery or summer school.  Please take the time to read this new process, to talk it over with your student, and make sure they understand. We will do the same.  This process is now under way. Please pay attention to PowerSchool for your student’s academic progress as well as their daily attendance.

UCS has one of the most expansive college and career preparatory curricula in the state and resources to support planning those next steps.  Parents and students, please check out our UCS College Central site to find resources available to you for academic life after Utica High! UCS is pleased to host virtual visits for over 35 colleges and universities this fall! Check out the full schedule, here: https://bit.ly/3li2BoG

All students enrolled in Stevenson MADE (Stevenson Center for Manufacturing, Automation and Design Engineering) Design Thinking class participate annually in The Michigan Design Prize a competition celebrating and developing exceptional Michigan industrial design talent.

 The student groups submitted a design concept that aligned with the outlined challenge instructions, which were to “design a game, interactive craft or project, or toy that helps create a fun and meaningful engagement with friends or family during times of social distancing.” 

 Three student groups from Stevenson MADE had been named finalists in the Michigan Design Prize competition earlier this fall.  Over the weekend, in a virtual ceremony, the MADE students swept the top awards!

 Gold Medal: Joshua Abbott, Andrew Bogusz

Silver Medal: Mario Gjini, Yousif Habsh, Connor Harrison.

Bronze Medal: Samantha Fenwick, Jada Blue, Skylar Hempel

We would like Thanksgiving Break to be our first Unplugged Weekend – No Homework, No Emails, No School, just being grateful for the time we get to spend with families and loved ones over that long weekend! 

With Titan Pride,

Kenneth L. Cucchi III

Principal, Stevenson High School
