College Days at Miller!
In an effort to promote higher education, every
Thursday at Miller will be designated as "College Day". We
encourage staff and students to wear clothing promoting their favorite
college or university. It is our hope to stimulate conversations
between students and staff about college opportunities.
Remember, students will not be permitted on campus prior to 8:00 a.m. due to
safety reasons. There is no supervision for the students before
this time. The front gates will be locked until 8:00 a.m.

Message from the Principal
Welcome to October and second quarter! Thank you students, families, and staff for getting us off to a great start to the new year. With the first quarter down and progress reports sent home, this is an excellent time to contact teachers for assistance with how you can help your child to support or enrich your child's learning. Also, if you have any questions regarding progress reports, please contact your child's teacher. We have an open door policy and appreciate all academic parent involvement.
We are very excited to welcome our new assistant principal, Mrs. Gaxiola. She is coming to us with a wealth of knowledge and experiences in education to support our students both academically and socially. Welcome Mrs. G!
This month, we are also introducing our new Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS) System. A team of teachers and support staff volunteered and dedicated their time to develop a school wide positive behavior system/plan to support student's positive behaviors as well as restorative practices. Teachers included a brief summary of our new plan at parent-teacher conferences. We are looking forward to acknowledging our students for being responsible, respectful and caring. We will be holding parent and student assemblies to communicate the district's and school's initiative to support positive behaviors and the partnership between the school and home. Look for the flyers to be sent home soon.
October brings us: 1st quarter progress reports, Drexel Heights Fire Prevention Program, PBIS evening, Open Enrollment Opportunities, PTA meeting, and our second Miller Morning of the school year.
As always, be sure to read your child's weekly classroom newsletters for "up to the minute" information regarding both classroom and school news.
