Principal's Message

  • Principal's Message — Welcome Letter

    July 31, 2020

     

    Dear Miller Families,

     

    Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! I hope your summer was safe and you found some excitement and had some fun.  It’s always a joy to be able to spend time in the summer with family and friends, even if it’s via Zoom😊.  I want to WELCOME all new students and families to Miller and welcome back our returning students! It’s always a great day to be a Miller Mustang!  I know the students are getting ready for their virtual return to school and our staff is preparing for their return. Here are a few reminders for you:

     

    1.     School starts ONLINE via Zoom on Monday, August 10th @ 8:30 a.m.

    a.     A staff member will be calling parents between 8/3-8/7 to ensure they are connected to the internet and have devices to participate in our remote learning. Teachers will also send an email of their welcome letter and class expectations.

    b.     If you are still in need of a laptop for your child, please give us a call @908-4200 to check one out for your student. 

     

    2.     School ends at 2:30 p.m. (Mon, Tue, Thurs., Fri.) and at 1:30 pm on Wednesday.

     

    3.     School Schedules will be posted on our website next week and each teacher will send out their class schedule to parents next week as well.  You will notice on the schedules that we have LIVE Zoom sessions (Synchronous), tutoring, Small group work with the teacher, and designated times for students to complete work independently (Asynchronous).  We are putting the final touches on our class schedules.  Our goal is to be able to provide a schedule that will not be changed whether we are learning remotely or on campus.  We do anticipate that minor adjustments will have to be made.

     

    Although we are learning remotely, it is very important that your students are on time each day.  Tardiness is not acceptable and has a negative impact on their learning.  Each day begins with a morning meeting, attendance, and check-ins for additional support.  If your child will be absent please call or email Ms. Anna Padilla the attendance technician @ 908-4202 (anna.padilla@tusd1.org) or Ms. Elena Solis the office manager @ 908-4200 (helena.solis@tusd1.org).

     

    Safety is always a priority at Miller.  Please remember that even though we are not physically at the school, cyber safety and appropriate use of the internet/technology and Zoom platform will be expected and discussed by our staff to students.

     

    Please do not hesitate to reach out to your classroom teacher for support, clarification, and concerns. Teachers will provide parents with an email, phone number and other various avenues of communication as we work and learn remotely. Please adhere to the teachers designated office hours and allow the teacher 24 hours to respond to your request. 

     

    All of us here at Miller, are committed to providing the best education for your students. We need your involvement, ideas, and support.  Feel free to call me at 908-4200 or email me at maricella.carranza@tusd1.org.  You can stay informed about our school and upcoming events by visiting our website at http://www.tusd1.org/miller and by following us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/Miller-Elementary-School-320736584718096 .

     

    Below are our important dates and events:

      

    August 6th from 2:00-2:45pm, I will host “Zoom with the Principal “. I will be available to greet parents, answer questions and/or concerns.  Drop in and say “hi”.

What Makes Us Special

Miller Elementary is committed to maintaining a positive learning community where students develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for contributing to a multi-cultural society.

Teachers use arts and technology as tools to help connect with children. The Opening Minds through the Arts (OMA) program incorporates language arts, math, social studies and science into visual and performing arts programs. Every class has access to an interactive electronic response system that teachers can use to gather student opinions and generate discussion topics.

Miller also values parent and community involvement. The school has community representatives who encourage parents to be involved in the school, and families are invited to monthly meetings on topics that relate to their children’s education.
