Notes from Dr. Miller

Dear Gompers K8 Parent Community,


What an AMAZING first 3 days in #GATORNATION! Students walked through the gates of SUCCESS and into the Learning ZONE!!


So many smiling faces...what an amazing group of students, what a privilege to work with them.


#180daysdaysofwhy, as we enter into the second week of school, please be reminded that we can not interrupt learning time to classrooms via parent calls. Every minute is a valuable learning minute for the students' success in their learning journey.


Let us continue to work together through the new little "tweaks" of change, your support through the process is appreciated.


Please remember that there is no school on Monday due to Labor Day!


Wishing you a blessed time with family and loved ones on the holiday!


Gompers Gators are going G-R-E-E-N!!!


Respectfully,


Dr. Damita Myers-Miller - dmyersmiller@lbschools.net

Let us learn, achieve, and reach vic-tor-y

At Gompers A-CAD EM - Y!
