Out and About in the Community

Miller 5th Grade Baseball Team

From Valerie Dick - These boys represented Miller at the Middle School Madness Baseball Tournament in Mansfield this weekend. They placed second (out of seven) in the 5th grade division! They played hard and with class, and we're proud of how they came together! Go Miller!

This Week at Miller

Inch and Miles

At LME, we #daretobe our personal best as we learn more about the pyramid of success!


We will recognize 6 Miller All-Stars for displaying friendship at this week's rally (on Tuesday). In addition, 5th Grade will present "loyalty".

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.


We are seeking donations of 30 hand soap dispensers with clear soap (see example below) for a Genius Hour project for session 2. Can you help? Sign up here: http://www.SignUpGenius.com/go/4090E4BADAE23A5FE3-soap
