Miller Memo

October 31, 2022 Edition

Happy Halloween Miller Career and Technology Center students and parents! We hope you have some exciting, safe plans for this evening. Please read below for a few campus updates, initiatives, and reminders. Go Astros!

NEW - Miller's Monster Mash Thank You

Thank you so much to all our staff, students, business partners, and families who helped make Miller's Monster Mash such a success! Whether you helped decorate, donated candy, or worked the event, your contributions were much appreciated. Future Miller students in the making!

NEW - Student Tardies

Parents and students, we are seeing a rise in the number of student tardies to 1st and 5th period classes. We encourage student drivers to be safe and not rush to campus, however persistent lateness to class can impact a student's grade (missing valuable instruction) and discipline. Our assistant principals will continue to meet with students and assign detention or further discipline if needed.

NEW - Marvelous Miller Staff Award Winners

Each month, our staff members nominate and select 2 colleagues who have gone above and beyond the call of duty. This month we are celebrating two wonderful ladies!

Mrs. Curole, one of our Special Education paraprofessionals, was selected for not only being an amazing paraprofessional but also an amazing human being. She cares for the educational and emotional well-being of all our students, and serves as a mentor and caregiver to our staff members. Thank you Mrs. Curole!

Mrs. Greene, our English III teacher, was selected for being such a positive light and hard-working teacher on our campus. She not only plans incredible, creative, and engaging lessons for her students each day, but she also assists with campus tours, NTHS, and more. Thank you Mrs. Greene!

NEW - EPIC² Student Award Winners

Last week, we were able to surprise our second round of EPIC² student award winners. These students were nominated by their teachers for displaying our EPIC² (Empowerment, Professionalism, Integrity, Commitment, Curiosity) core values and serving as role models for their peers. Congratulations!
