The Miller Minute

#daretobe our personal best to inspire excellence!

Week 19 - January 14

News to Know

We welcomed 11 new learners this week and anticipate at least 2 more joining us this week. As we continue to grow, it is imperative we follow safety expectations.

Arrival / Dismissal Procedures

Back doors open for car riders at 7:20 am. The back drive is the preferred drop-off for most learners as buses, daycare vans, and special circumstances utilize the side drive.


All morning drop-off vehicles are expected to form a double line (starting at the loop) and merge back into a single line (near the Gaga Pit) for morning drop-off. Morning traffic ebbs and flows, but all vehicles should follow this procedure. Please do not block vehicles from forming double line. Thank you for being courteous. See picture below.


Dismissal occurs at 3:15. Dismissal changes need to be submitted to the office no later than 2:45. Car cards must be presented for student pick up.

Field Day - Save the Date!

Field Day is scheduled (tentatively) for Friday, April 20.

Genius Hour

Would you like to share your genius with us? We would LOVE to have you! Ideas that we have include: yoga instructors, culinary experts, cake decorators, entrepreneurs, wood workers, crocheting, etc. The sky is the limit. What would volunteering entail? Volunteers would need to commit to serving our learners for 3 weeks (one hour each week - Fridays from 7:55 - 8:55 am). We like for these clubs to be interactive, so a project for our learners to complete would be ideal. You can sign up for one Genius Hour Cycle or all of them! Contact shannon_west@misd.gs to volunteer or for more information.


FAQ:

- Will I have help? Yes! At least one staff member will assist you.

- How many students will be in my club? It depends on the club. Our clubs have between 20 - 30 learners.

- Do I need to supply my own materials? Let us know what you need. We can help!


Our next Genius Hour Session Cycle starts February 9. Want to help? Let me know!
