Fourth Quarter

We have officially entered the fourth quarter of the 2018-2019 school year. The 3rd Marking Period ended today and report cards will be sent home through email on Monday, April 22. To receive report cards, parents MUST have an established PowerSchool account prior to the release of the report cards. Paper copies are no longer available.


The fourth quarter brings so many activities along with year-end testing. As our students in grades 3-6 participate in the MSTEP, all students will also take their final NWEA for the school year. Students in grades K-6 will take Reading and Mathematics and students in grades 3-6 will also take Science. Getting our NWEA spring results are exciting for students and staff as we see how our students have grown academically since the fall.


As spring continues to move in to Michigan, please make sure your child has what they need to be outside for recess. One day it is 70 degrees, then the next day, 45 degrees. Help your child dress accordingly so they are prepared to be outside in the spring weather.


Have a great week!

5th Grade Feast

Our 5th Graders hosted their annual feast as part of their Social Studies activities. Thank you to the parents who volunteered to send in food, help set up/clean up, provide paper products, and helped their child dress the part!


All three classes enjoyed the morning and left feeling full!

Take Your Child to Work Day

Thursday, April 25

Take Your Child to Work Day will be Thursday, April 25. Students will NOT be marked Absent that day as long as Morgan receives a call or a note stating that you are having your child participate in Take Your Child to Work Day.

Morgan Lunch Monitors

Morgan continues to look for additional support during the lunch hour. While our building is allocated a certain amount of paid EduStaff lunch monitors, we can take additional support in the form of volunteers. Students really enjoying seeing their parent/grandparent/aunt/uncle at school during the lunch time helping in the lunchroom or walking around the playground with the kids.


If you are interested in becoming a paid lunch monitor, please click on link below to start an application with EduStaff. EduStaff certified lunch monitors are paid an hourly rate each day they work. EduStaff employees can also complete additional, free, online training sessions and become substitute paraprofessionals for additional paid hours of work.


Morgan also takes volunteers with a current background check on file. If you filled out a Volunteer Sheet within the past few years, you should be able to volunteer for field trips, classroom help and lunch supervision. If you are unsure about your volunteer status, please contact the Main Office and Sharon or Melissa can check for you: 586-797-5800.


If you are interested in volunteering during the lunch hour, which runs from 11:30 AM until 12:15 PM each day, please contact Melissa in the main office and let her know what days you are available to volunteer. Grandparents/aunts/uncles/neighbors are all welcome once we have a background check on file.


If you have any questions, please call Morgan at 586-797-5800 or email Mrs. Lasky at sue.lasky@uticak12.org.
