Principal's Message

August 2016

Dear Parents and Students,

My name is CK Green, and I am the proud new principal at Utt Middle School. Prior to coming to Utt, I was the Assistant Principal of Curriculum and Instruction at Tustin High School for three years. Before heading in to administration seven years ago, I was a middle school math teacher for five years in the Newport-Mesa Unified School District.

Also joining me this year as a new assistant principal to Utt Middle School is Ray Hernandez. Prior to coming to Utt, Mr. Hernandez was the Principal at Dr. Peter Marshall Elementary School in the Magnolia School District for two years. Before heading in to administration, Mr. Hernandez taught 5th and 6th grade for eleven years.

As a staff, we believe the middle school years can be the most enjoyable of all your schooling. We at Utt hope you will not only enjoy these years, but will also profit greatly from them. Our philosophy is to challenge students with rigorous standards and engage them with instructional strategies supported by technology.

As a staff, we are committed to:

    • Maintaining high academic standards for all our students.
    • Providing a positive, safe, and respectful environment where our students feel comfortable and excited to come to school.
    • Recognizing the outstanding achievements of all of our students.

We encourage our students to show a Positive ATTITUDE, show COMMITMENT, and strive for ACHIEVEMENT at all times. Students are expected to study hard and do their best to take advantage of the educational opportunities that are available to them at Utt.

We are looking forward to meeting each of you and hope you will feel free to come and visit with us at any time. Our parents and students play an important role in making our school the best that it can be.

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year at Utt Middle School!


Dr. CK Green, Ed.D.

Principal, Utt Middle School
