Happy New Year! We are into 2019 with a renewed focus on ensuring that all of our students are successful and have opportunities to grow and thrive. Please keep a lookout for updates from your child(ren)’s school for information in this regard.
Just a reminder that our district Board meetings are held every first Monday of the month at the high school at 6 p.m. This is a great way for families to get updates regarding student learning progress, bond construction projects as well as support recognition of teachers and district employees. Our Board meetings are open to all and we welcome and encourage your participation in these meetings. We believe that every voice is critical when trying to improve our schools.
Bond construction has begun around the campus and we can already see the benefits! New doors and windows have been installed on the Arts Academy building, as well as new doors on the band room and auditorium. Architects and engineers are meeting with staff and the Board regularly to finalize details for the renovation and repairs on the MELA building as well as ideas for improvements to our football stadium. All projects are coming along as scheduled, with the bulk of the projects scheduled to begin this May. We are so excited for the improvements and appreciate the voters in our district that helped make this happen.
Lastly, January is Board Member appreciation month across the nation. I would like to personally thank all of our Board members who serve the district, as they give of their personal time (and often money) to support all of the children and families here at Millwood! Thank you all for helping us continue to Build Champions in the Classroom, Community and in Life!
