As we enter 2019, we look forward to more hours of daylight, report cards coming home electronically on February 1, and the UCS Academic
Blitz. The Academic Blitz is an informational night to start looking into all the great academic opportunities available to our students. Do you know what UCMST, UAIS, or CSI stand for? Did you know that UCS has partnerships with businesses and universities in our community? The Blitz is designed for students in 5th-10th grade to start mapping out their future. Although college looks so far away, it is really around the corner. I hope to see you there on February 7, 2019 at Henry Ford High School at 6:30PM. (Program starts at 7:00)
Stay warm!

March Is Reading Month

Academic Blitz”Reading is Awesome” is the 2017 March is Reading month theme at Switzer. We started our reading month with our reading assembly today. Information has been sent home but is also included in this newsletter. Students will be bringing home their packet with reading goals and a log sheets to be turned in on Mondays, starting March 13. Students who meet their goals and turn in their log sheets will be awarded tickets/legos and be entered into drawings for access passes to the Lego Garage or Slurpees. If we hit our school goal we will have a special visit from our “lego rescue heros” from the police, fire and homeland security. Don’t forget family reading night planned for March 24, at 6:30pm. All prizes and events have been funded by our supportive PTO and thank you Switzer reading committee for your hard work and great ideas!
