The Miller Times
Sept. 18 - 22
Sorry, I have been a bad communicator these first weeks, I will be more consistent moving forward I promise! I will send a newsletter every weekend to fill you in on what we have covered and get you ready for the next week. I prefer for this to be the main form of communication so we don't have to deal with papers and folders and the such. Let me know if you need a paper copy of the newsletter.
What's coming Up
Sept. 19 and 21 - NWEA testing. We will be doing testing for our beginning of the year baseline scores on these days.

Sept. 29th - Field Trip to Waterloo Rec Area. We will be going to hike, learn, and play at the Eddy Discover Center and Waterloo Rec. There will be no parent chaperones on this trip.

Kidblog will be introduced this week as part of the HW. You can use the link below to get to our log in page. Email me if you have questions. I will have the kids write their passwords in their planner.
Spelling words will come home this week as well. They do not have to study them or work with them unless you want. I had several families ask for the lists last year, so I am providing them. They will have the same list for 2 weeks.
