Dear Millard Families & Friends,
I hope that the break was a healthy one for all of you and that much quality time was spent together as a family.
Winter break is over and we are back into the swing of things. Oftentimes we forget the reason why we’re working so hard and are so pressed for time – it is so we can provide a better life for our family and ourselves. The most precious gift we can give to ourselves and our loved ones is the gift of time. When you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of your life that you will never get back. Your time is an important element of your life. Building strong relationships takes time and effort. Spend lots of quality time with your children, get to know them, and show your love for them by giving them your time. They will remember and appreciate it when they’re older.
And, now that we are back, we have much to focus on: mastering grade level standards in reading, language arts, math, science and social science. Progress reports will be coming home later this month. Please review them with your child and make a plan to address the area(s) of need. We will continue to count on your support by helping your child at home, reading this bulletin bi-monthly, and staying in touch with your child’s teacher.
As our partner in educating the students, we certainly appreciate all the support you continue to give your children and our school.
Thank you and Happy New Year 2015!!
On May 7, 2014, the Fremont Board of Education unanimously voted to adopt new math programs for grades kindergarten through eight.
