October 1, 2014

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As September rolls to an end, the sunshine and warmer temperatures mirror the academic and social climate we are building at our school in collaboration with you and your children.    The positive endorsement we received from you on Welcome Back Dragons night was reemphasized last Thursday night during the open house.  Your support is also manifested in the positive attitude of your children.   The academic and behavioral data collected during this first month of school clearly indicates improvement across the board.  I will be sure to share specific assessments and data with you in my October letter.   

Congratulations to the MRS community for our school receiving the 2013-14 VTPBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) Exemplar Award!   It highlights how well we have implemented PBIS, and that is paying dividends in school’s climate socially and academically.  Efforts of school staff alone cannot achieve improvement in the academic and social climate; the underlying factor and main component of this improvement is the care and guidance you provide for your children and the support you provide for your school and its staff. 

The changes implemented in the schedule this year are proving positive.  The enrichment block for grades K-4, from 11:00 A.M. to 11:30 A.M. daily, has enabled the elementary teachers to focus on improving math/literacy skills for all students. The middle school enrichment block, from 11:00 to 11:45, provides specific support in math, language arts, social skills, research, and group dynamics.   A forty-five minute period built in at the end of the day on every Friday, known as Friday Finale, is designed for reflection on the week, celebration of achievements, and making plans to overcome challenges.   Elementary students have attended music assemblies during this time, but on Friday, September 19, this block consisted of reminding all elementary students of the school’s behavioral expectations.   Fourth grade students presented skits highlighting appropriate behaviors in class, on the bus, on the playground, and during breakfast and lunch.  Middle school students have carried out various activities during this time at grade, multi-grade and middle school level.

In order to continue strengthening our relationship we invite you to join us for juice and/or coffee on the second Wednesday of each month from 7:30 A.M. to the start of school at 8:00 A.M.  This time is designed to bring parents into school for conversation among themselves and with students and staff.   Note that the second Wednesday in October, the 8th, is the day for all of us to walk to school.  Bus riders, walkers, bike riders, and all other students will meet at the Sheffield Municipal Building and will walk or ride bikes as a group back to school.  I hope you can join us.   You are also invited to join us on the last Friday of each month, for our school-wide Friday Finale at 2:15 P.M.

Parent Conferences are scheduled for October 9th and 10th. The 10th is an early release day for students.   Please be sure to sign up for a conference with your child’s teacher by accessing: http://www.ptcfast.com/schools/Miller_s_Run_School .  This link is posted on the school website also.

Finally, it is a pleasure for Miller’s Run School staff to provide all students whole-child education in collaboration with our parents and guardians.  Thanks for your support, and we look forward to seeing you October 8, at parent conferences, second Wednesday of each month, and during Friday Finale.  Please be sure to contact me if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions for me.

Sincerely,

Sikander Rashid
