Attendance Celebrations!

Attendance Matters (find out why at the link below) and these McMillan students know it! McMillan celebrated attendance for 2nd quarter on January 14. Congratulations goes to the Eskew Family on winning the 2nd Quarter Family Attendance Prize Basket! The basket includes McMillan shirts for the family, books, pencils and certificates for Dagwood's, Taco Bell, Domino's and Hardee's. Thank you to those local businesses for supporting the Mexico Schools!


The focus for January's lessons are ways to be safe in the classroom and respect. We will focus on how to be safe in the event of an emergency such as a fire, tornado, earthquake, or intruder. Students will review drills and safety procedures as well as review procedures for using learning materials and tools appropriately. Students will end the month with a focus on what respect means and what being respectful looks like in a classroom.

Nurse Buck's Reminder

Remember to check your child's hair every week for head lice. Remind your child to not share hats or coats to help prevent the spread of lice. Lice is very common in elementary schools across the country.

Remember to notify the office if your child is absent for any reason! Attendance calls are made mid-morning everyday.

Box Tops for Education

We will begin a Spring Box Top Contest soon but there are more ways to earn Box Tops for our school...check out the link below and support McMillan!
