Milroy Elementary News - December 8, 2023
Message from Mrs. Wilson
It's been another great week at Milroy! Thank you to the PTO for providing the Milroy Merry Market for our students. This is a great opportunity for our students to purchase low cost gifts for their family members. I appreciate the hard work put in by the PTO volunteers!
Please make sure you put Thursday, December 14th on your calendar. From 6:00-7:30, we will have our Christmas Program along with our Digital Learning/Family Night event. Stations will be set up around the school for everyone to participate and have a good time. We will have Santa and the Grinch available for photo opportunities! Students are to arrive between 5:45 and 5:55 and proceed to their classroom. Door 12 will be open beginning at 5:45. The program will begin promptly at 6:00. Students are to dress in red or green if possible!
For the month of December, please see the "December Days of Joy" Calender for our SPIRIT DAYS! It's always fun to see the students and staff participate in our spirit days!
Donuts with Grown-ups has been extremely successful so far this year. Thank you all for attending and supporting your child and our school! Our next one will be the second week of January on the 12th! Just a reminder, we have this event in place of eating lunch with students. We appreciate your understanding.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns throughout the year, please give me a call.
