School is well underway! Thank you for helping us get off to a great start to a new school year! We are having a great time with your children and things seem to be going well. We invite you to contact the teachers or the office if you have any concerns or questions throughout the school year. Working together we will do much better for your child.
ř 4th grade through 6th grade planners to communicate with parents; planners should be signed every night.
ř Building is not open until 7:45 a.m.
ř Breakfast starts at 7:45 a.m. Class starts at 8:05 a.m.
ř Please call before 2:00 p.m., if you need to change going home transportation directions for your child.
ř IMPORTANT: Medications must be brought to school by parents. Students may not bring medications to school. Thank you.
If you havenít returned your childís information packets or done the online registration, please do so. We need that information so that we can contact you in the event of an emergency!
A few reminders about morning drop off:
* We use a single line in the mornings
* Please wait to let your child out of the car when you are one of the first two cars
* Children should get out of the car on the sidewalk side. We donít want there to be any chance of a child getting hit by a vehicle.
* If you are going to walk your child to the door or if you need to come into the building, please park in a parking place. If you park at the sidewalk, the drop off line is at a stand-still.
* Please stay in line until you exit the driveway. Vehicles that go around other vehicles in the driveway increase our chances of an accident substantially.
Parents that pick up their child after school but choose to not do so in the car line, are asked to use the outside gym doors and pick up your child in the gym.

The Billings Board of Education voted to employ Ben
Abramovitz as Elementary Principal for the 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 school years. Due to contractual agreements and the time of year, Ben will be transitioning part-time immediately, beginning with the Mondays he is not under contract at Miller, as it is a 4-day school district. Mrs. Brandt will continue to care for the elementary and work with him through this transition. Ben is Mrs. Abramovitzís eldest son and has several years of successful experience as a Principal.
Mrs. Abramovitz has officially retired, due to circumstances beyond her control. The school is planning a school-community retirement party for her at noon, on Saturday, October 22nd. We love Mrs. Abramovitz and will miss her. We would love for you to be a part of this celebration. Hotdogs, hamburgers and deserts will be served. Please join with us in letting Mrs. Abramovitz know how much we appreciate her and how much she is missed! Thank you for your patience throughout this delicate process and transition and as always thank you for your support!
If you have any questions feel free to contact Mrs. Brandt at (417) 744-2623.
