The Miller Minute

We #cando & #willdo our personal best to inspire excellence!

August 19, 2018

A note from Mrs. West

Welcome to the 2018 – 2019 school year! LaRue Miller Elementary is a school where staff and students #cando and #willdo their personal best to inspire excellence and change the world! If you are a new LME family or a returning one, you are welcomed here! We are looking forward to our best year yet!

Miller may look a little different when you return. New furniture in every classroom, interactive boards, writable surfaces, and new safety measures are just a few of the changes you will see. We are extremely grateful to the community and our MISD school board for passing the 2016 Bond that allowed for these updates to our campus.

At Miller, we develop leadership characteristics in our students. Last year, we spent time developing these characteristics through a school-wide shared book study on the Pyramid of Success (Inch and Miles: The Journey to Success by Coach John Wooden). This year, we will continue school-wide book studies that highlight leadership characteristics.

The LME Staff considers it an absolute privilege to serve you and your families, and we cannot wait to get started! We are thankful for strong family support and welcome your input! Together, we are better!

Shannon West, Principal

The Rest of the week

To allow students to learn and practice procedures, we will expect them to enter the school without a parent / guardian starting Tuesday. Please say your good-byes and give hugs to your children before they enter the building. Students will report directly to the cafeteria or gym, and personnel will be available to direct students.

Arrival and Dismissal
