Principal's Message

It has been a crazy month here at Milford Elementary!!   The 4th grade play was amazing as always, Kindergarten being little pigs was incredible, and our entire school putting on both the Mathathon and Leadership Day.  We also were able to have our End of 3rd Quarter Awards Assembly and recognize all the successes the students have achieved. 

I wanted to take a minute and thank all our stakeholders for making our leadership day a huge success.  We had so many positive and reassuring comments and they were very much appreciated.  May I share some comments that came, “The feeling inside this school is amazing.”   “I can tell your staff really cares about the kids.”  “Thank you for realizing my child is special and can be a leader.”   Many, many more comments were added to these and we appreciate them so much. 
Now, looking forward to the months of April and May.  As you know, we all participate in end of year assessments from Kindergarten through Sixth grades.   The younger grades take end of year assessments in Reading.  The older grades are a bit more rigorous and they take end of year assessments in multiple academic areas.  We want all students to have the best chance possible to show just how much they have grown academically.  Here are a few things that you can do to help our students to be ready:
1. Attendance is crucial this last quarter 2. Communicate with your child’s teacher about concerns 3. Talk to your child about testing and offer positive reinforcement 4. Support healthy eating habits 5. Keep testing in perspective
Finally, spend time with your children.  They need all of us more now than ever.  We are so excited to see what great things they are currently accomplishing and what they will accomplish in the future.   GOOD LUCK TO STUDENTS ON THEIR ASSESSMENTS!!
