UCS integrates coding and programming throughout K-12 curriculum

From The Principal

Congratulations to our 6th grade students as they complete the
SMART Moves program run through the Sterling Heights Police
Department. We will have a celebration for students and parents
on December 10th at 9:30 am to congratulate them for
completing this program. We would like to thank Officer Goodard
for his time and educating our students on these important topics.

With the weather turning colder and wetter each day, please
remember to help your child dress accordingly for school. Warm
jackets, hats, and gloves will help keep those holiday sniffles
away. Unless the temperature is below 10 degrees we will have
outdoor recess. It is important for students to have this break
during the day to refresh their minds. Please help us make this
time comfortable for our students.

Our Student Council is sponsoring our annual Canned Food Drive
in partnership with the local Kiwanis Club. We will continue
collecting nonperishable items through December 7th. This is a
great opportunity to help families in our area that are in need
during this holiday season.

Our Mission

With the support of the community, the mission of Bruce Collins Elementary is to foster a caring and enriching environment that enables all students to grow academically and socially to reach their individual potential as they become lifelong learners.

MSTEP and MIAccess

This Spring our students in grades 3rd- 6th will be taking part in MSTEP & MIAccess Michigan State Assessments. Specific information and testing dates will be coming home from individual grade levels. It is very important that students will be in school on these days. Please make

every effort to have them here. Thank You!
