Thank You

We have three parents that have volunteered to go with us to the Detroit Zoo!  Thank you Ms. Baadani, Ms. Alaansi, and Ms. Awad.  Marwa, Ghaida, Fatima are very excited that you will be joining us on our trip!

If anyone else is interested on coming with us, we would love to have you join us!  You will need to drive separately and meet us at the zoo.  Please let me know if you would like to come so we can order you a ticket at a discounted price.

Field Trip

We will be going to the Detroit Zoo on Thursday, October 5th.  Permission slips will be coming home today.  Due to limited space on the bus, only three parents will be able to go with us.  If you are able to drive separately and meet us at the zoo, we would love to have more parents join us.   Please return the permission slip and $5 for each person going on the trip by Friday, September 29th.

Open House

I am looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow at Open House.  You will have a chance to visit our classroom, meet the special area teachers and sign up for a conference in November.  Please plan on coming to Miller between 6:00-7:30 tomorrow evening.

We’re Off to a Wonderful Start!

I have enjoyed getting to know your children during our first two days of school!  We have a great group of students and I am very happy we are getting off to a wonderful start!

Today your child brought home their homework folder.  This folder will be used every day to keep important papers in one place.  There are three notes inside the folder that we would like you to read, complete or update and return to school by Friday.  Also, if you are able to donate school supplies, please send them in as soon as it is convenient for you.

Thanks for your support!
