From the desk of the Principal

The character education word of the month is Perserverance.

Students of the Week

STUDENT: Marvin Colas


Marvin's work ethic and attitude have grown over this year. He's a more mature, thoughtful, and respectful person than I first saw. Most recently, he shared with his class a very personal, moving poem he'd written. He is a fine example of student growth and working toward reaching one's potential.

STUDENT: Linsey Nguyen


Linsey has organized a project in my class for a student who has been on homebound this year. We miss our classmate, who has been struggling medically. Linsey is designing a quilt on which each student will design a square. Her enthusiastic community spirit contributes to my students' commitment to a strong, productive learning environment. She's a funny, kind kid.

They went over there to support and cheer on 4th and 5th grade students who qualified in their PE classes, run The Miller Mile. Gobi Thurairajah (last 2 pictures in orange circa 2011,) one of the top cross country and distance runners in South Jersey, once was a participant in this event. He finished 2nd to last in 4th grade and didn’t even qualify in 5th. But due to this event, he kept his promise to himself that he would keep running and get back to this type of excitement one day. Well, he fulfilled his promises to himself as he and his teammates will travel up to Washington Township this weekend to compete for the South Jersey Group 4 Championship.

This is a first class annual event that is ran by Miller School Health and Physical Educators Audra Wenner, Mike Mousaw, Dan Cappelluti, and Chris DelPrete. The event is ran so well due to the cooperation and organization of the administration, support staff, EHTPD, timers, parents, and all of the teachers and students who come out to cheer on their classmates. Great job Miller School! Keep em running #ehtpride
