Dear Millard Families & Friends,
October is a busy month at Millard. We have lots of activities planned, so be sure to read through this bulletin (Calendar on page 4) to keep up with everything that will be happening.
On October 16, the State of California will be conducting a statewide safety drill called the “Great California ShakeOut”. Please refer to the newsletter article describing it in detail. Millard School practices fire and earthquake drills throughout the year to be sure our students know what to do in the event of an emergency. The last page of this newsletter includes information for parents about how our school will proceed should there be a major disaster during school hours, and about how you can help us follow a protocol that is designed to keep everyone safe and accounted for. Please read the letter carefully and put it in a safe place at home so you can refer to it if necessary.
As we continue to upgrade our emergency preparedness materials, we are in need of parent assistance to organize the supplies in our safety shed. Parent volunteers are currently inventorying our supplies, but we will need assistance in November with set-up and organization. If you are available during the day and could help with this, please leave your name in the office and we will contact you. Thanks in advance for your help.
On May 7, 2014, the Fremont Board of Education unanimously voted to adopt new math programs for grades kindergarten through eight.
Make A Difference Day
The highlight of the season will be our Fall Carnival taking place Friday, October 24th from 4:00-8:00 pm. Students are encouraged come in costume and enjoy a variety of carnival games in a safe environment. (No costumes are allowed at school on Halloween.)
