Prevent Summer Learning Loss

Help your child get off to a great start in second grade.  Due to the long summer, many children forget or need time to review material learning in first grade.  By going on 4-6 days a week for at least 20 minutes, your child will retain their knowledge and prevent summer leaning loss.  Use the link under Class Links and use the Clever link to access  Usernames are student numbers and passwords are birthdays (month, date, year).

I have assigned lessons that will review the skills we learned this year.  Please visit the following tabs:

Math, Language, Reading Skills Literature, and Reading Skills Informational

I also encourage you to take weekly visits to the Dearborn Public Libraries.  They have a great summer reading program, and your child will love getting new books to read throughout the summer.  They may also continue to read books on over the summer too.  🙂

We have had a wonderful year together!  I hope you have a safe, restful and fun summer!  I look forward to seeing you all in September. 🙂

Please Empty Backpacks

Tomorrow is the last day for the students at Miller to carry a backpack to school.  Your child is bringing home some math materials today to use over the summer.  Tomorrow they will be bringing home more materials, so please make sure the arrive with an empty backpack in the morning.

I will be sending home some some smaller items on Thursday and Friday.  Please have your child bring a plastic grocery store bag to keep their items in one place.  If you have any extra Kroger, Target, etc. bags that you could donate, we would appreciate it! 🙂  Thanks for your help.


Please have your child bring an empty backpack to school on Monday and Tuesday next week.  We will be cleaning desks, shopping with our Miller tickets, and winning some awesome Bingo prizes.  The children will have a lot of items to bring home, so an empty backpack would be helpful.

Backpacks will not be allowed at Miller after Tuesday.  I will make sure big, bulky items are sent home  before Wednesday.

Lunch Menu

The lunch choices for the rest of the year are:

Monday: Pizza

Tuesday: Halal Chicken Nuggets and

Wednesday: Halal Hot Dogs

Thursday:  A surprise.  If you don’t like surprises, pack a lunch from home.

Second choice all week will be Cheese Pocket Pizza or Peanut Butter & Jelly

Friday will be our last day of first grade.  The children will be dismissed at 11:45.

Summer Birthdays

We have several friends that have a summer birthday.  Since they will not be in school on their birthday, we will be celebrating with them next week.   Here is our celebration schedule:

Monday: Muna and Mariam

Tuesday: Dania and Gia

Wednesday: Musaed and Hussein

Thursday: Melack and NourElzahraa

Thank You Home Depot!

We had an exciting day last Friday, largely due to Home Depot.  They were very generous and donated a craft project for every student at Miller.  We loved making our boats!  They also donated many items to beautify our school.  Take a look of some photos of our fun day on the pictures page.  The children were smiling all day long! 🙂

PBIS Reward Party and Planting Day!

We will be having another game day tomorrow morning.  The children with 4 or less flips may bring a toy, including electronics, to school tomorrow.  Our party will be in the morning since we will be planting flowers and grass seed tomorrow afternoon.  Please have your children come in old clothes that you will not mind getting dirty.

Your Help is Needed
