Have a Safe and Fun Summer! 

See you on September 6!





For the first time in 25 years, the 8th grade girls track team posted an Undefeated Season!  From the first practice day on March 15th through the last track meet on June 3rd, the girls worked hard and gave it their all each and every day!  The talented group of girls were a dream to coach and exciting to watch!

Zoe Galloway was the only Spartan to break a record this season, although many were close.  Zoe broke the Long Jump record jumping 16', which was previously held by her sister with a jump of 15'8".

Congratulations to all of the girls that participated this season!

Automated Attendance Calling System Notification Messages


Effective Monday, April 18, 2016, Bemis Junior High School will utilize an automated attendance calling system.  All Utica Community Schools’ high schools have had the system in place for a couple of years. 

The process will occur as follows:

  • On each scheduled school day, automated telephone calls will be placed each evening, beginning at 6:00 pm, if your student has a marked absence for one or more class periods during the school day.
  • Calls will be made for absence codes of “A = Unverified” and “U = Unexcused.”
  • Calls will be placed to the number that is entered as the “Primary Phone” in PowerSchool.
  • The automated message will ask you to check and verify your child’s attendance on PowerSchool. You will be asked to call the school’s attendance office within 24 hours to excuse a full or partial day absence.
  • If there is a concern with a reported absence during a single hour you will be asked to contact your child’s teacher and not the attendance office.

If you receive an automated attendance message at a secondary phone number, please inform us so that we can make the necessary changes.
