Greetings Miller Families,
As a community we’ve had wonderful success in establishing safe and consistent traffic guidelines and expectations for the Miller Community. Thank you for the continued commitment to student safety and support with traffic initiatives.
Over the past two years the Miller PTA and Administration have teamed up to pursue a $200,000 Safe Routes to School Grant, which will further improve traffic flow and establish safe walking and biking paths for Miller students.
We are entering a critical stage in the grant process and we need your support. A Community Forum will be held in the Miller Cafeteria on Tuesday February 26, 2019 from 2 – 3:30 p.m. Community attendance, feedback and active participation at this meeting is critical to successfully securing the Safe Routes to School Grant. Thank you in advance for taking the time to be part of the positive change we seek for our children and community. We look forward to seeing you Tuesday February 26, 2019 at 2 p.m.
Radewin Awada – Principal
تحية لكم أهالي مدرسة ميلر،
لقد حققنا سوياً نجاحًا رائعًا في وضع إرشادات وتوقعات بشأن حركة المرور حول المدرسة. أشكركم على تفانيكم في الحرص على سلامة الطلاب واقدر لكم الدعم المتواصل ونحن على مقربة من فصل الربيع.
على مدى العامين الماضيين، لقد قمت بالتعاون مع فريق جمعية الأهالي من أجل محاولة تأمين منحة بمقدار مائتين ألف دولار بغرض إنشاء مسارات آمنة في جميع الطرقات القريبة من المدرسة. هذا البرنامج سيعمل على تحسين تدفق حركة المرور وإنشاء مسارات آمنة للمشي وركوب الدراجات للطلاب من و إلى المدرسة. نحن الآن ندخل في مرحلة حرجة في عملية طلب هذه المنحة و أنا بحاجة إلى دعمكم.
سوف يعقد منتدى في كافتيريا المدرسة يوم الثلاثاء 26 فبراير 2019 من الساعة 2 إلى 3:30 مساء. أرجو التفضل بحضوركم و سأوف أكون ممنون لتفاعلكم و مشاركتكم بأي آراء أو مقترحات. إن حضوركم ومشاركتكم الفاعلة في هذا الاجتماع سيكون أمر في بالغ الأهمية لضمان الحصول على المنحة بنجاح.
السيد/ عواضة، مدير مدرسة ميل

Dear Miller Families,
Hoping this letter finds you and loved ones well and in good spirits!
The Miller Community gives thanks to all contributing during our Thanksgiving Canned Food Drive, together we donated 2,383 food items to needy Dearborn families. Super job Miller Community for making a difference and helping those unable to help themselves, this is who we are and what we are all about, God Bless.
A continued conflict in Yemen has created one of the world’s largest and most complex humanitarian crises. Almost 80 per cent of the population (22.2 million people) is in dire need of humanitarian assistance. Conflict has led to the internal displacement of 2 million people, left over 1 million public sector workers without pay for two years, and undermined access to ports and airports, obstructing essential humanitarian and commercial deliveries. Growing food insecurity, poor water and sanitation, and the spread of preventable diseases threaten millions more. The caseload of outbreaks of Acute Watery Diarrhea (AWD)/cholera has reached over one million. The strain on an already weakened health system has been further compounded by the diphtheria outbreak in early 2018, with over 2,200 cases, so far. In addition, 16 million people lack access to safe water. Children are the primary victims: more than 6,000 have been verified as killed or maimed since the conflict began. Almost 394,000 children under 5 currently suffer from severe acute malnutrition (SAM) and require treatment, with millions more in jeopardy. The damage and closure of schools and health facilities threaten children’s access to education and health services making them vulnerable to psychosocial distress.
In hopes of making a difference and teaching Miller students the concept of community service and giving back, Miller PTA, Staff and Students are teaming up and committed to raising funds for, “The Children of Yemen.” At the end of the fundraising campaign all monies will be donated to an NGO non-governmental organization, a non-profit, voluntary citizens’ group which is organized on a local, national or international level and earmarked specifically for the Children of Yemen.
Monetary donations being accepted in the Office, please make checks payable to Miller PTA, Service Squad will be fundraising during lunch and after school.
God Bless you and family for making a difference one child at a time.
There will be a PTA Meeting 9 a.m. at Miller Elementary in the Cafeteria!
Come tomorrow evening from 5:00-6:30 to Miller Elementary for some fun, crafts, and food.
The month of October is national Learning Disabilities month.
Specific Learning Disability means a disorder in one or more of the basic psychological processes involved in understanding or in using language, spoken or written, that may manifest itself in the imperfect ability to listen, think, speak, read, write, spell or do mathematical calculations. Specific learning disability does not include learning problems that are primarily the result of: visual, hearing, or motor disabilities; intellectual disability; serious emotional disability; cultural factors; environmental or economic disadvantage; or limited English proficiency.
