We are SO pleased to welcome our Miller Rockets back for the new year!

Here are a few important reminders to help us have a safe and effective second half of the semester:

1. Students are tardy (late) after 8:30am and must be accompanied and signed in by an adult in the front office. (Be sure to relay this information to anyone that drops off your child).

2. Never drop elementary school students off at the front door without walking them into the office to be signed in by a responsible adult.

3. Please do not drop students off in the front parking lot in the morning. Please use our car rider line to drop off car riders.

4. After 4:00pm any car riders not picked up at the car rider line must be picked up in the front. Parents must come in the building to retrieve their student(s).

5. Please make sure your child's teacher and the front office has your most current phone number and address in case of an emergency.

Wednesday Words with Williams!

Every Wednesday on the morning announcements, I introduce all of our students to a new vocabulary word that they may not know! Here are the ones we've done so far and the ones we will do for December.

Please encourage your child to practice not only these definitions but to learn their own new definitions each week and use them in their daily language! They can even try to see if I know a new word they found!!

1. Expeditiously: with speed, fast

2. Fascinating: very interesting

3. Minute: extremely small

4. Enormous: very large in size, quality or extent

5. Cease: bring or come to an end

6. Unanimous: two or more people fully in agreement

7. Drowsy: sleepy, lethargic

8. Recognize: to know again

9. Exclaim: cry out suddenly in surprise, anger, or pain
