ThanksChristmas

It's beginning to look like two holidays rolled into one - Thanksgiving and Christmas. One more week of intense instruction and then we will all have time to spend with family and friends. Please take time to participate in the wonderful activities planned by our hospitality committee to ensure that we not only work hard, but we also play hard. Remember, Secret Santa forms are due to Rossalind by 1:00 p.m. today. Also remember to sign up to bring goodies for next Fridays feast.

Google Translate

Google translate is a wonderful tool to use when you need to send communications to families in their native language. We have many families that want to partner with the school and we do not want language to be a barrier. Google Translate is not always 100% correct in translation, so be sure to have a friend review it prior to sending it home. Google Translate: https://translate.google.com/

Communication Folders

Yesterday the FAME Committee met and we had the wonderful opportunity to collaborate with parental input. Miller has many wonderful opportunities, both academic and social, for students each day. Because so many notices are being sent home at varying times, parents are missing opportunities to support their children's educational experience. January 7, 2016 ( which is not far away), we will begin sending home Homework Folders each Thursday. Every student will take home a folder that contains flyers, graded school work, and notices. More information will be coming soon.
