Dear Millard Families & Friends,
Next week we will celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week.
Later this month the Millard staff will be showing their appreciation for the many parents, family members, and friends who volunteer their time to our school and students.
Invitations are going out for Volunteer Breakfast to be held on May 27th from 8:15 – 9:15am. Please plan to join us so that we can acknowledge our volunteers and your contributions!
There are also some volunteers that are often working behind the scenes and are not always as visible, so I want to take this opportunity to acknowledge two of them.
Each month Bronco Billy’s donates pizzas to our Pizza with the Principal party. The students and I always have a great time and enjoy this fun luncheon experience. The next time you patronize this establishment, please be sure to thank them for their support of our school. Mrs. Ellen Ng spends time at almost every school lunch period collecting plastic and recyclables that would otherwise be thrown away. Everything is shipped to Terracycle. This year she has earned approximately $700 for Millard School which has generously been donated to our 6th grade classes to help defray the costs of science camp. Mrs. Ng also runs our Homework Club each week, helping students complete homework and giving assistance when needed.
THANK YOU FOR ALL THAT YOU DO!!
YOU ARE APPRECIATED!!
I would like to remind you that attendance is very important until the last day of school, June 11th. And please, continue to follow traffic safety rules when dropping off and picking up our students. Our children’s safety is everyone’s responsibility.
On May 7, 2014, the Fremont Board of Education unanimously voted to adopt new math programs for grades kindergarten through eight.
