UCS App Settings
The UCS App has undergone a number of  recent upgrades. Please check the settings tab (located under the wrench and hammer icon in the lower right corner of the home screen) to ensure you will continue to receive personalized notifications and information specific to Graebner. You may follow one or more schools.
If you have not downloaded the App, we encourage you to do so to receive updated alerts from our school. Links to download the app are available at: http://www.uticak12.org/social

For your convenience, I have enclosed a copy our UCS's Elementary  Handbook.

Elementary Handbook 2017-2018.pdf 

 

The staff of Graebner Elementary School, within an ordered, nurturing environment, defines its mission as follows: to teach children to learn academic and social skills in a positive and cooperative manner and to enhance self esteem, so as to prepare children to become contributing, successful members of society.

Electronic Report Cards

Graebner Elementary offers parents two easy ways to electronically access your student’s semester grades through a secure system.  These options will allow parents to view semester grades and attendance as soon as the information becomes available:

  • PowerSchool - PowerSchool allows you to view semester grades and attendance. Parents who do not have access to a PowerSchool account will need to register for one prior to the end of the marking period. The report cards will be automatically e-mailed to the address that is used to register the PowerSchool account.
  • SchoolMessenger - As an added featured, the system we use to communicate with you through automated e-mails and phone messages also provides parents a secure way to manage and receive information.  This registration process will also allow you to set your preferred method of notifications for emergencies and school notices. Parents must first have a PowerSchool account to register for this system.

Our school no longer automatically prints and mails report cards to parents. Printed report cards are available by requesting one from our school office. 

More information on how to register for secure accounts is available at: http://uticak12.org/studentinfocenter
