RED RIBBON WEEK:

Red Ribbon Week- October 25th-29th

Since its beginning in 1985, the Red Ribbon has touched the lives of millions of people around the world. Today, the Red Ribbon serves as a catalyst to mobilize communities to educate youth and encourage participation in drug prevention activities. Our students will participate in activities that support “healthy choices” they can make in their daily lives. Students K-5 will learn about making healthy choices and the different things they can do to keep themselves healthy and drug-free. This week will also be spirit week.

 *Monday - "Team Up Against Drugs" - Wear Your favorite Team Jersey
   *Tuesday - "Be Unique" - Crazy Hair Day
   *Wednesday -"Be Comfortable in Your Own Skin" - Wear Sweats
   *Thursday -"Support Your Community" - Wear School Colors

Millington School Code of Conduct:
Mrs. Dawson met with the students last week to review the Code of Conduct. You can find it located on the school web page under the parents tab.  We ask that you please review this again with your child. 

 

Student Dismissal: 
Car Line 3:10 - The car line is open until 3:35 so please stagger your times.
Walkers will exit the building at 3:12 - Students can be picked up at the side gym door by a parent or they can exit and walk to the parent's car as an option. 
 
If your child has a change in dismissal, please send in a note to your child's teacher early in the day. Please include the child's first and last name as well as the homeroom tag.  If this is a late change during the school day, please email the teacher, office staff and the school nurse so we can ensure that someone saw the change in dismissal. 



School Start Time:

Students are expected to be in their Homeroom by 9:00 am.  Doors open at 8:45.  If you are dropping your child(ren) off or if they are walking, we recommend that they enter the school no later than 8:55 so they can be in the classroom, ready to begin the day at 9:00. Students not in the classroom by 9:00 will be marked late.
