Principal's Message

Dear Millard Families & Friends, 

   Last Monday was a holiday set aside to remember a charismatic visionary who fought for civil rights and equal rights for African Americans, which eventually benefited all.  Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s life is a shining example of how one person can make such a significant difference in the lives of so many Americans for generations to come.  His “I Have A Dream” speech has been immortalized as one of the pillars of the civil rights movement.  Many of the rights we now enjoy have been fought for and won by such leaders as Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks, Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall and many others.  It is only fitting that we celebrate his accomplishments on this very special day.

   As you know, this week was our Millard Science Fair.  Our student scientists have been hard at work creating hypotheses and conducting experiments.  We had a great turnout of projects from our primary grades, and our intermediate students really stepped it up with some terrific and creative experiments.  I learn a lot by reviewing the student’s final conclusions and discoveries.  Our classes got an opportunity to view the fair on Tuesday, and the judging took place on Wednesday.  Millard will award 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place ribbons in each grade level, and then all 1st place winners will have their projects go on to the District Science Fair, which will be held at Centerville Junior High School, 37720 Fremont Blvd. on Saturday, February 7 from 1:00 – 3:30pm.   Thank you all for the help and support you have provided at home.

   I also want to take this time to commend our science teacher, Mrs. Devi.  She has done an excellent job of teaching our students the scientific method, and it shows in their projects.
