Take Care of Yourself
With that being said, there already have been a lot of staff absences and staff leaving early. Know that I am all about taking care of yourself and family and I realize problems arise unannounced. However, please make sure we are professional in our time at school. If you are leaving early for whatever reason please let Dave or myself know....try to keep these at a minimum. As you can see from our sublist emails we as a school (and District) are short on an almost daily basis. Please know students count on us everyday. Whether they act like it may not always be the case. These students need and count on us on a daily basis and we need them. Taking care of our mind and body is essential for us to accomplish our goals.
Take the weekend get rested up and take care of yourself.
What's really important?
That said, while discussing this in a recent attendance meeting with our counselors, Rachel shared with me a short article that does a great job of articulating the simple things that we can do to increase the odds of a student successfully staying in class and accessing the instruction and curriculum necessary for success. I encourage you to read this short article from teaching tolerance about when to "make a point" with students and when to simply provide what they need to engage in the days work.

DRILLS, DRILLS, DRILLS?
Unfortunately, we had to cancel our tornado drill to spare the large number of substitute teachers as well as Miller staff who were covering other classes that day. Please keep an eye out for a rescheduled tornado drill...TBA
