The Miller Minute

#daretobe our personal best to inspire excellence!

Week 2 - August 27

Last Week at Miller

Arrival / Dismissal

Last week may have been the smoothest arrival / dismissal that I have ever experienced the first week back! We were all inside by 7:48 on Friday, and all students were on their way home by 3:45 everyday except Monday! That's amazing! Thank you for following our arrival and dismissal procedures!


It was reported several times that drivers on Sudith Lane are not being safe. This information has been reported to the Midlothian Police Department.

Miller Rally

This week, our student body spend each morning (Tuesday - Friday) together. Our Student Council Leaders shared school-wide expectations and led us in the pledges, the school song, and our new Miller creed. We will continue meeting each Monday morning to build community and pride in our school.
MILLER!

Inch and Miles

Our words this week: Hard Work / Friendship


Some amazing news...one of the authors (Peanut Harper) saw a twitter post and reached out to LME! We are in the process of becoming a partner school with HarperforKids, a non-profit organization that helps schools implement the pyramid of success!

iPads

iPads are rolling out this week, and we could not be more excited! Technology is not something new in our classrooms. Previously, teachers and students have had limited access to devices on a rotating schedule. Because every child will have a device this year, our teachers will have unfettered access to develop technology infused lessons to enhance and possibly accelerate the learning in the classroom.


The rollout schedule is below:


Monday-5th & 4th

Tuesday- 3rd & 2nd

Wednesday-1st

Thursday-Kinder


Please pay the device fee if you have not already. You may do so with a credit/debit card at http://www.misd.gs/Page/3386 or pay with cash or check on campus.


More information about the M*Powered Initiative with be shared at the Parent Meetings this week.

Grandparents' Day

A letter will go home tomorrow (Monday) inviting all grandparents to enjoy lunch with their grandchildren on Friday, September 8. If your child's grandparent is planning to attend and has never had his/her license scanned, he/she might want to stop by the school this week (if possible). This process will expedite the check-in process!

11:00 - 11:30 --- 1st Grade

11:30 - 12:00 --- 3rd Grade
