From the Principal
We had our kindergarten assembly this morning and now the entire school is ready to fill buckets with kindness! Ask your little ones about mindful breathing as well. They were very good listeners this morning!
We are really excited to have our new character development program up and running! I've attached some information for parents above so they can ask their children about bucket filling and try to carry it over at home! If we can help our students understand that by spreading kindness they make themselves happy, our world will be a brighter place to live.
Please see the digital backpack this week for information on the American Educator's visiting day and Bucket Filling. Mrs. Logan and her team of volunteers will begin collecting for their yearly project, please see the flyers. Every year she and her students adopt families that are in need of support. Via monetary and material donations, they prepare special gift bags for each family member so they have something to celebrate their holidays.
The PTA will be having our Holiday Boutique here at Miller from November 26-28 and volunteers are always needed. The students LOVE to purchase their own gifts for their parents, grandparents, and siblings. Please continue to send in the Box Tops! The teachers get fairly competitive with each other and it's a great source of extra income for the PTA to put on their wonderful events.
Our character word of the month is PERSEVERANCE. Our quote speaks to developing grit and a growth mindset: " Mistakes are proof that you are trying."
I hope you all enjoy the long weekend. Thank you to Veterans who so bravely and proudly served our country. Thursday, November 15th and Monday, November 19th will be half-days for parent-teacher conferences. If you have not scheduled a conference with your child's teacher, please call or email them. It's important to be an active part of your child's education. We look upon the teacher-parent-school relationship as a partnership
