Milan Elementary Newsletter
Volume 1, Issue 2 October 2020
Dear Milan Elementary Families,
It is a great feeling to be settled into a routine and fully engaged in working and learning. Expectations with academics and behavior have been established as we are moving into the second month of school. As a school community, we have set our goals in Reading, Math, Science, and Social Studies and therefore it is so important that your student is here as much as possible.
We will strive to reach those academic achievements by strengthening a variety of techniques and programs within our school. We are focused on improving our curriculum in all subject areas by utilizing common assessments and frequent collaboration with our teachers and staff. We have started taking devices home some this year in all grade levels to practice our online learning tools and work in the google classroom.
We will continue to teach The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. We started the year with a boot camp to touch on all 7 habits and we are going to continue to focus on 1 habit per month. We just finished habit 1 “be proactive” and will begin habit 2 “begin with the end in mind” this month.
Parents and family members can help with our efforts here by encouraging these goals at home and reinforcing them with your students. By strengthening the bond between students, staff, and families we can make amazing gains. We are going to make a great school year even greater!! Please remember to read with your student as often as possible and review math facts frequently.
- Students receiving a Major referral or more than one minor referral will not be allowed to attend the PBS celebration.
- Please encourage your student to complete any homework or unfinished classroom work at home each night. This will help them to be prepared and on task to start each day.
