Millville Elementary School
A GREAT PLACE TO LEARN
Wednesday, May 22, 2019
Our lunch menu for today is BBQ pork sandwiches, salad bar and fruit. Tomorrow’s lunch will be spaghetti with red sauce.
Drama Club has rehearsal at lunch today for the entire cast and chorus; rehearsal will be in the gym.
Our science state testing, as well as language arts and math make ups, continue today so we remain on testing schedule; students who are testing: remember to take your time, and do your best. Those students who try their best, and do not hurry, will get to go to the Aquatic Center next week.
Sports’ Night is tomorrow night starting at 5:30. There will be awards for MVP, most improved, most inspirational and much more. All athletes in all sports will be acknowledged. If you need an informational flyer you can pick one up by my office door.
Attendance matters; there are just 11 days left in the school year, so let’s end the year strong.
Our annual Cesar Chavez Wildflower Run and arts day is Friday. Permission slips have already or will be sent home today for the run; you only need to return the permission slip if you are NOT going to run. Also, make sure you wear proper foot wear on Friday and clothes that are dress code appropriate in which you can run.
Student of the Month for April; this student has attended Millville since kindergarten. This student was nominated and I quote “as he consistently has shown wisdom in his choices and continues to excel in his academics and collaborations. He has shown great maturity throughout this final trimester and has achieved many of the goals he set out to accomplish.” This student is in Mr. Burbank’s class, is a male and the student of the month for April is Austin Smith. Austin will receive a month’s worth of hot chocolate or popsicles, four homework passes, and acknowledgement in the newsletter, on the website, at the school board meeting, on the Student of the Month board and in announcements. Congratulations, Austin! Millville School’s Student of the Month for April.
Happy birthday to Ava Cole!
Have a great day!

February’s Storm & the End of the School Year
The waiver has been submitted for the three days school was closed due to the storm in February. Now we wait!
After meeting with the school board last week, the plan agreed upon is to apply for three days waived, which we have, but expect to receive two days waived. This would mean our last day of school could be Thursday, June 6 not Wednesday, June 5.
To play it safe we are asking all families to plan on your child(ren) attending school through Thursday, June 6, including 8th graders. Both June 5 and June 6 will be minimum days and will be filled with fun “end of year” events. Even though these days will be filled with end of year fun, they are still attendance days and all students, TK-8, are expected to attend. Attendance matters through the last day of school, which could very well be Thursday, June 6.
We will keep you informed as any new information is received regarding the waiver.
Thank you! -Mindy DeSantis
