Mustang Family Update - October 2017

Hello Mustang families,

As always I hope this message finds you well and that you are looking forward to a great second quarter - we sure are here in the halls of our great school!  For this month the choice was tough in terms of what to highlight (as there are so many activities/learning experiences that deserve commendation throughout the past month).  

In the end, the choice became clear because it involved each and every one of us - together we are Team Millridge!  Many families were present at our annual Board of Education presentation, which occurred this past Wednesday, October 25.  Our theme of #teammmillridge was a true collaborative effort where the Board of Education heard about some of the many examples of teamwork in our building.  Students and staff combined their efforts to provide what all felt was a great way to showcase what we can truly achieve due to high levels of expertise and communication.  Please take a moment to look at the presentation, which is posted on our Millridge website.  

And thank you for your continued support in your child's education and the efforts of our staff.  We couldn't do what we do without you.  

As we head into the month of November, please remember the following events (past and future):

  •        The success of our school-wide Read-a-thon!!!  When people hear that as a school we raised OVER $12,000 they are absolutely astonished.  THANK YOU to all participating families who encouraged their students to read during this time period.  Next up - a PTG-supported One School One Book Program in January/February of 2018.  More information will be coming home to you in the coming months - it is a month you will not soon forget that involves all students and their families!
  •        ?Halloween parties and parade on Tuesday, October 31 (details posted on our website and sent to you via Infinite Campus last week)
  •        Picture re-take day is November 1st.  Individual photos came home this week.  If your child wishes to take another photo next Wednesday is the day to do so.  If ordered, class photos will be coming home at a later date.  
  •        Parent-Teacher conferences in the evening on Thursday, November 2 and during the day on Friday, November 3 - we are looking forward to meeting with you to discuss your child's progress and what we can do to better assist them in reaching their potential.  
  •        PTG Winter Workshop will occur with your child on either Thursday, November 30 or Friday, December 1.  Thank you in advance to all who assist on this great day for students!  

Enjoy the month of November - we'll keep working hard to educate all young Mustangs!

Kind regards,

Craig Caroff
