Sharing a string of life thoughts…one pearl at a time.

It’s an exciting time…the office is buzzing with new families enrolling, packages and boxes of supplies arriving, the phones ringing, and lots of fun conversations (just to name a few).  Teachers are arriving early to work in classrooms and design engaging lessons for learners.  We officially badge-b2sstart “staff meetings” on Tuesday morning next week, but we could almost start school today the building is so full (remember, I said almost…).  🙂

In preparation for the big day on Monday, August 26th, here are a few items to consider:

  • Go online to complete your child’s registration packet of updated information with your child’s code (see previous blog and links).
  • Start the daily routines now with a set bedtime; rest is critical and “banking” some extra rest now will help when the reality of routine kicks in later.
  • Explore healthy meal and snack options for school days; busy brains need great fuel!  What about those important after-school snacks too?
  • Check out the MISD Dress Code so there are no surprises.  Get those hair cuts scheduled too.
  • Pick a special shirt, pair of socks, sneakers, or another clothing item for the first day of school–everyone likes a little something special that very first day (hint, hint, Mr. Van).  🙂
  • Finally, talk about school, set up a homework area, and pack up the backpack.

We look forward an extraordinary year, Team Miller!  As a new young friend said today, “Let’s get it started!”  🙂

Meet the Teacher Night is next Thursday, August 22…HS – 2nd grade from 5:30-6:15 and 3rd-5th grades from 6:15-7:00.  See you then!
