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.





 The Bemis Destination Imagination team competed in the scientific challenge - "In Plain Site".  They researched camouflage methods and presented a solution that included two camouflaged characters and a camouflaged object and a story with a plot twist.  They came in first place at regionals in February and first place in the state for middle level teams. Team members are Nic Landini, Matthew Touma, Emily Laurence and Leah Leduc. 

Congratulations Team!





On Saturday, April 23rd, students from Bemis Junior High competed at the Middle Level State Forensics Tournament at White Pine Middle School in Saginaw, Michigan.  The team was led by Bemis faculty sponsor, Ms. Denovchek.  Dylan Dawood competed in Prose Interpretation (Kick Me by R. Feig) and scored a first place in one of his rounds.  Abby Smolinski, Hailey Gelil, Cassidy Keary, and Meghana Bandaru competed in the Multiple Category, performing a shortened version of Wizard of Oz, and they earned a plaque as Semi-Finalists in their category.
