The Miller Minute

#daretobe our personal best to inspire excellence!

Week 3 - SEPTEMBER 3

Last Week at Miller

Sweet Frog!

Thank you for joining us at Sweet Frog! Because of your generosity and love of frozen yogurt, Sweet Frog donated just under $300 to our school PTO!

Can someone say, "ipads"?

I don't know about you, but I am SO excited to have devices in our students' hands. Our technology crew and instructional specialists really impressed as they delivered and set up devices to ALL students in Midlothian ISD before September 1! They #daretobe rock stars!

Around Campus:

5th grade playing Quizlet Live - Students communicated and collaborated to win a game! One girl said, "Ooh, she shouldn't have said it was a game. We are competitive!". How great is that?

5th grade making book trailers with imovie! The end products are super cool and fun to watch!

1st grade taking pictures around campus! "I'm good at this!" was overheard!

These devices will be used to enhance our students' learning, and we are so thankful to have unfettered access!

*If you have not yet paid your child's device fee, please do so! You may visit the link provided here, or you may send cash or check in a marked envelope with your child.

Other learning around campus

Hurricane Helpers

Last week, our LME Families donated just over $500 to contribute to Midlothian ISD's efforts to raise funds for the Red Cross as part of the Hurricane Harvey Relief Efforts. That is AMAZING! We will continue to collect funds through Friday, September 15.

Our campus has a unique opportunity to help a campus that has been affected by this recent disaster. We have "adopted" Normandy Crossing Elementary in Galena Park ISD. This school serves approximately 650 learners (PK - 5) with a staff of 88. Irene Benzor, principal, has expressed a need for shoes, school supplies, and school uniforms (see graphic below). She is creating a teacher wish list for anything her staff might need, and I will share that list when I receive it. We will collect items on campus through Friday, September 15, or you may ship items directly to the campus.

Bus ID Badge System

Most students have received their Bus ID Badges. These badges are attached to the top loop of each student's backpack. Please do not remove these badges.

Some students are still waiting on these badges. These students include all Kindergarten and new to Miller students (this year and last year). Pictures are being processed, and IDs will be distributed soon.

Miller Fall Fundraiser

LME will host ONE fundraiser for the school this year that will cover annual field day and extracurricular club costs, allow us to purchase additional materials for learners, and provide additional funds for new projects not covered by MISD allotted funds.

We will either host a school-based fundraiser or a company-based fundraiser.
