-Ready Reading Diagnostic window opened June 8th, 2020, all Miller students are required to take the reading diagnostic for proper reading placement.  Upon logging in students will automatically begin the diagnostic and will not begin instructional lessons until the diagnostic has been complete. It is critically important students complete their own work and receive no assistance, doing so ensure they are assigned the proper reading lessons over the summer months. While taking the diagnostic students should take their time, read the question carefully and believe in themselves!

Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The first word that came to my mind when I sat to start this post. I am in disbelieve. The 2019-2020 school year is coming to an end. This is our last week. Thank you very much for all your support during these hard times. This was our first Pandemic and Hamdalla we made it through. I ask parents to continue supporting students with reading and math during the summer. Any gain is better than a loss. If students can logon to iready and zearn for an hour each day, they will benefit. We are also asking that the packets that were distributed during materail distribution to be completed and returned to school in the fall. This is extra math support.

This weeks assignement is for students to take their Iready assesment. We ask that studnets try their best and complete the test on their own. We need to see the growth that happened during the past three months. This assesment will also be used in the fall. Please take your time and do your best. It does not all have to be completed in one day. Students can work on it everyday. However, it does need to be completed by Thursday.

If you have any questions or comments please feel free to email me or send me a remind text.
