Notes from Dr. Miller

Dear Gompers K8 Parent Community,


What a fantastic 1st week together...

GATORS are moving forward with G-R-E-E-N expectations and already receiving GREEN SLIPS!!!

Lots of 1st-week accomplishments: SSC Compliance meeting held, 1st PTA meeting held, FIBO Art with K-5 students began, 4th & 5th-grade Choirs are set, Kinders have moved into their regular schedules, and Volleyball and Football teams are set for Middle School. #GATORNATION is moving into the full swing of our learning journey.


As in years traditions, Gomper Gators wear RED Polo Shirts for picture day this week. This picture will be a part of yearbook memories. You are able to order online packages, see information and website link below.


I am concerned with the number of tardies that students are accruing each morning. Students are expected to be in their seat and learning @ 7:55 for zero periods (MS), 8:55 for (MS) and 9:00 for (ES). Being on time and prepared to learn is key. Learning and instruction begin when the bell rings. Please note, as a parent in the morning, I am rushing too to get my child off to school on time, so I know the struggle. Please support our school efforts in ONTIME LEARNING and SUCCESS!!


Looking forward to seeing and meeting more families at Back to School Night next week, Tuesday, September 17!


Respectfully,


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