They shine as examples to all students about the power each student has within themselves to elevate their success

BrookeBrooke Budd has exemplified the traits of an AVID Scholar since she first arrived at Utica High School. After several challenges in junior high, Brooke's grades were not a reflection of her true potential.

Over the past three years, she has excelled in the AVID program to learn college readiness skills. She has persevered to overcome her obstacles and raise her GPA dramatically. She has done it all with a positive attitude and a refusal to quit.

Due to her determination, she received the Cameron Semble Memorial Scholarship, created in honor of another AVID student who was lost over the summer.

Brooke and Cameron both were true example of the AVID spirit of hard work, dedication, perseverance, and positivity. They shine as examples to all students about the power each student has within themselves to elevate their success.

Mrs. “P” is unmatched in fostering independence and accountability in each student

Mrs. PMrs. “P” is unmatched in fostering independence and accountability in each student. My daughter aimed to please because she wanted to give back the respect she was being given.

It is a remarkable and extremely effective approach that continued to impress me all year. I also loved to hear how Mrs P pushed for my girl’s best, cheered for her wins and held a whole classroom of hands whenever the growing pains of the tween world hit even a single student!

The Kids Love Learning

BercelMrs. Bercel has been amazing with her virtual class of Kindergarteners.

Having kindergarteners is a challenge in itself let alone having to teach them virtually. She teaches them manners and etiquette while showing them kindness and patience. The kids love learning with Mrs. Bercel and singing s

ongs, dancing dances to learn how to sound out words and read sight words. We love Mrs. Bercel

He genuinely cares about every single person in his building, and we feel it.

SuggsMr. Suggs is a #UCSChampion because of the way he has kept every single person (staff, student, parent) feel safe during the last year. He has put mitigation strategies into place at Dresden that make sense, that allows the students and staff to have amazing days, despite it not being normal days. He has lead with an amazing leadership that is like non other I have ever worked for. He genuinely cares about every single person in his building, and we feel it. Thank you Brad for being such an amazing principal!!
