Jeannette Announcements

  • Dear parents,
    We have a very exciting week ahead of us!

    Next Tuesday is the PSAT for 8th and 9th graders!  This is an important day for your child because they can demonstrate what they have learned in mathematics and English Language Arts. It is also important for your child to be in attendance this day because the state of Michigan requires every school to have nearly 100% participation on the test.

    Please see the letter linked here, which students received on Wednesday. This letter will tell you everything you need to know about what your child can expect on Tuesday. One thing I need to highlight for you is that YOUR CHILD MUST HAVE THEIR COMPUTER AND CHARGER ON MONDAY, APRIL 8!! They will leave it here at school overnight in their testing room. They will not have homework on Monday.

    Another exciting event next week is the Solar Eclipse! The eclipse occurs on Monday. There is a letter attached here that will give you important information about steps UCS is taking to make sure that your child can both enjoy the eclipse and remain safe. Please read the letter carefully.

    If you have any questions, please call my office at 586-797-3300.

    Have a great weekend,

    Beth Grillo

    Principal, Jeannette Junior High School

  • Principal's Welcome

    Beth Grillo

    Welcome to Jeannette Junior High School!

    My name is Beth Grillo, and I am the proud principal of Jeannette Junior High School. It is my honor to come to school every day and work with this incredible group of students and staff. Jeannette is home to one of most diverse groups of students in the district, and we learn and grow together in a mission to offer our students the opportunities to pursue their personal goals.

    Here at Jeannette, three common values unite us: Community, Integrity, and Leadership. Every day, we aspire to instill these values in ourselves as educators and to help our students see how these values can positively impact their own lives, the Jeannette family, and the world at large.

    UCS is the best destination for students to achieve their dreams. We at Jeannette work closely with our students to encourage them to follow the pathway within UCS that will help them get there, whether it's attending Stevenson High or Utica High, applying to one of UCS' top-notch speciality programs - The Gene L. Klida Academy for International Studies, The Utica Center for Math, Science, and Technology, The Utica Center for Science and Industry, The Stevenson Manufacturing, Automation, Design, and Engineering, or the Utica Academy of Health and Human Services - or preparing to take advantage of Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses, school-to-work programs or dual enrollment. 

    Jeannette is a truly special place. We are united in our love for this school, our pride in our diverse heritage, and a quest to help students see their potential and strive to reach their goals.
