From The Principal

Hello Beck Families,

Schoology - the Schoology site will be available to all UCS students through July 31.  So if your student wants to continue with learning opportunities throughout June and July, it will be available to them (as will all the other learning apps).

Kindergarten Screenings - Due to the school closures, all kindergarten meetings to screen new in-coming students who did not attend a Utica pre-school, have been cancelled.

Have a great summer!

The mission of Beck Centennial Elementary is to provide a respectful environment that enables children to communicate effectively, forge connections, and create opportunities for success within the global community.

Circle September 17 at 7 p.m. in your calendar. Beck Elementary will be hosting its Open House on that night. More information will be shared with parents as we begin the 2018-2019 school year. 

UCS Vision

All children have the right to a rigorous, high-quality education which meets their individual needs. UCS will respect, encourage and empower each and every student to acquire the necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes to be successful, contributing members of a diverse community and global society.

UCS Mission

We are committed to exemplary teaching and learning in order for our students to be prepared for success in the 21st Century.
We will achieve this commitment by engaging the entire community to focus on each child's achievement, with the expectation that every student will pursue some type of post-high school educational endeavor.

Core Values

  • Every child can learn and achieve.
  • Parents and guardians are partners in the learning process.
  • Being “smart” can be achieved through persistence, hard work and effective effort.
  • Excellence is expected and celebrated.
  • Data is used to guide our decision-making.
  • All employees will exemplify ethical behavior; exhibit a strong work ethic; and continue to develop their leadership, performance and service skills.
  • Technology supports and enhances instruction, business operations, research and communications.
  • The Board of Education, district educators/staff, parents, community members and business leaders must collaborate and work as a team to enhance educational opportunities for student success.
