Dear Millard Families & Friends,
It is hard to believe we have already been in school for nearly a month. We have had a great beginning to our school year and students, teachers, and staff are back in the school routine and moving along well with our new reading series and grade level curriculum.
October is always a special month at Millard. Our PTA will be in full swing this month with lots of holiday activities for our students. The highlight is always our Fall Carnival, which will be on Friday, October 24th. This community event welcomes all families, neighbors, and friends of Millard School, and gives us a chance to celebrate our school and a special holiday. Our PTA is hoping you will be able to devote a little time to help with this event, and, of course, we look forward to having you attend and enjoy a very fun evening! Be sure to contact the school office if you would like to volunteer.
Saturday, October 25 is Make a Difference Day. PTA will be sponsoring school wide clean up projects. Millard PTA will be organizing our safety shed and weeding our gardens, among other things. Watch for the PTA flyer coming home next month.
Our PE teachers, Mrs. Lumia and Mr. Morgan will be our basketball coaches this year, but they need HELP. If you would like to help support our boys and girls teams this year, and are available after school for practices, please leave your name in the office and we will contact you. The success of this program depends on parent support.
On May 7, 2014, the Fremont Board of Education unanimously voted to adopt new math programs for grades kindergarten through eight.
