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

Week 8 - October 7

Last WEek at Miller

Breaking News!

Because you are AWESOME, Miller Elementary attendance for the 1st 6 weeks is the highest in the district! Woot! Keep it up! We were given a traveling trophy to hold on to for the next 6 weeks, so be sure to check it out when you come through the office! More important than that, of course, is when kids are here, they learn!

Positive Office Referrals

We are recognizing students for demonstrating personal best characteristics through positive office referrals. Over 130 leaders were recognized in Sept. These students' names were placed in a drawing for a prize, and these leaders won a Miller shirt! #MISDProud

Additional Information

Save the Date and Fundraising Information

We are in the process of ordering a new playground structure thanks to a generous donation from our PTO! We are hosting a fundraiser to purchase a shade structure on the playground, new paint in the cafeteria, additional flexible furniture, and more!


All students will receive a Miller Glows Fun Run shirt and will run the Glow Run during their specials time on Thursday, November 1. You are welcome to attend! We will send home registration forms for badges closer to the event date!


This year, we will be able to accept credit card donations! All students will also be able to build their own portal to share on your social media accounts. We are excited about the opportunities this fundraiser will provide!


More information will be forthcoming! Thank you for supporting these fundraising efforts!

Volunteer Background Checks

Good news! The Volunteer Background Check is now online! You can fill it out here. If you turned in a paper form this school year, you do not need to complete another one.

Want to know more about what your child is learning at school?

The TEKS Resource System is the curriculum guide that we use to plan lessons and activities for our learners. You may access this system as a guest. This guide provides the following documents: Vertical Alignment, TEKS Clarification, Enhanced TEKS Clarification (Math), Year at a Glance, TEKS Verification, and the Instructional Focus Document. Remember, we are on a nine weeks schedule, so be sure to choose 9 weeks when given the option. You can view all state standards for your child's grade level under the Standards tab.


If you have questions, please contact your child's teacher.
