Greetings from Miller School
Dear Miller families,
        We had a great time at Miller Movie Night this evening! Over 125 children and parents gathered in the gym to watch “Finding Dory” With the help of Mr. Chartier, the school purchased a Bose sound system to help make movie nights and school dances more enjoyable. Race for Education funds were used to pay for the sound system. Thank you for your generous donations and thank you to the parent volunteers who helped with check-in, the concession stand and clean up!

Spring Parent/Teacher conferences are right around the corner and will be held on March 29th and 30th. On the 29th they will be held until 11:00 a.m. and children will have a two-hour delay. Should you need childcare during the two-hour delay, please contact the main office. The conferences on the 30th will be from 2:00-8:00 p.m. and there will be no school for children.
The clinic will be open during parent/teacher conferences, please stop by if you have any questions. On March 29th there will be a nurse in the clinic from 9:00-11:00, and on March 30th from 6:00-8:00 p.m.
Thank you to the many parents who have volunteered to help with teacher conference dinner. Your support means so much to our teachers.

During conferences Miller School library will be holding the annual Book Fair. Information on the Book Fair is found below.
Students will visit the book fair during their library classes starting on Tuesday, March 21 continuing through Monday, March 27. Parents will be able to shop at the book fair during conferences on March 28 and 29. The book fair will take place in the Miller School main lobby.

On Monday ballots were counted to determine which drawings would be on the 2017 Miller School Yearbook. We had so many entries and each was beautifully done, making the voting very difficult.
The winners are
Carly Veseskis, who created the drawing that will be on the cover.
The back cover will have drawings by Mary Zhu, Misha Senghal, Ailivea Pelideau and Mahiro Jilesen.
Congratulations to all students! The remaining drawings will be on display in the main lobby beginning next week.
