FROM THE PRINCIPAL

The Utica Community Schools Board of Education voted unanimously (7-0) in mid-August to place a bond proposal on the November ballot to address safety and security, technology and infrastructure improvements identified through the district’s strategic, long-range facility improvement program.  Voter approval of the bond proposal has been structured to keep the tax rate at or below the current level.  An insert in our newsletter explains the Board's action and outlines the purpose of the bond proposal.  This proposal will impact every UCS student and school.  We will share more about the bond proposal when school opens.  For more information, visit http://www.uticak12.org/2018bond.

Respectfully,
Jerry Pantano, Principal

Recycling

NJHS is continuing to sponsor a recycling fundraiser in partnership with PlanetGreen. They have made a few changes and they are no longer accepting large toner cartridges. Please do not send in the toner cartridges. They do accept:
 Inkjet cartridges

It helps Eppler earn money and it helps the landfills! NJHS students can earn hours for donating items, but anyone can bring these items to room 19. Thank you for your support! Please check out PlanetGreenRecycling.com for more information.
