Dear Millard Families & Friends, 

   Next Wednesday is Administrative Professionals’ Day but we recognized our office staff yesterday.  To us at Millard, this is a special day because we recognize and celebrate our two special people who play a key role in the success of our school – Bobbie, Millard’s School Secretary and Terrie, our Attendance Clerk.  They are an integral part of our school team and help make the school run like a well-oiled machine.  Bobbie and Terrie do work above and beyond what they’re supposed to do.  They are the “face of Millard” and are the first ones that students, parents, teachers and visitors see when they come to the office.  So, this week, take the time to remember them and let them know how much they are appreciated.  Thank you, Bobbie and Terrie, for all you do!!

   The staff and I would like to wish all of you a well-deserved Spring Break.  I encourage you to rest can take the time for conversation with your children, even though most parents are extremely busy.  What counts most is what you say and do at home.  When children can count on getting attention at home, they have a greater sense of security and self-worth.  This will help them do better not only in school, but also when they grow up.

   The most important activity you can do at home, and it doesn’t cost anything, is to communicate.  Ask questions, listen for answers.  If you’re used to getting one word answers in response to your questions, then it’s time to teach your child the art of conversation.  Think of conversation as being like a tennis game with talk, instead of a ball, bouncing back and forth.  Communication can happen any time, any place – in the car, at mealtime, at bedtime.  You just have to be ready to listen and respond.  When our children have communication skills, they are in a position to succeed – to learn all that has to be learned and to become confident students.

Regards,
 
Karen Robertson
