A GREAT PLACE TO LEARN
Thursday, January 10, 2019
Our lunch menu for today is deli sub sandwiches, salad bar and fruit. Tomorrow’s lunch will be pepperoni pizza.
Boys’ B basketball team has practice today after school at 3:00; A basketball has practice at 4:30.
The Million Word Club next goal is 500,000 words read by January 11 which is tomorrow. Those who have read at least 500,000 words by Friday will be invited to a cookies and milk reading hour on Wednesday.
Students who would like to say the pledge in the month of January may sign up at Mrs. DeSantis’ office.
Tomorrow is Spirit Day. Students wearing Millville blue and gold will receive a spirit ticket which can be redeemed at the student store later this month! And the class with the highest percentage of students wearing blue and gold will receive the spirit banner, one longer recess one day next week and Millie the beloved Millville roadrunner
The character trait we will be emphasizing for the month of January is kindness which includes consideration and thoughtfulness. Kindness is showing great care, regard and warmth for others. Have you said a kind word to someone today? During recesses today, make an effort to use kind words and keep track of all of the kind words you say to others.
The Student of the Month for the month of December is in the upper grades and was nominated due to amazing growth in maturity shown in academics as well being able to work through some struggles in writing. This student shows great respect towards others and is passionate in all that she takes on! She has a unique way of making others around her better. She is a great athlete, a super team mate, optimistic and sunny all day long. The Student of the Month for the month of December is from Mr. Burbank’s class and it is Kira Jones. Kira will receive hot chocolate or popsicles for a month, four homework passes and recognition on the Student of the Month board and in the newsletter. Congratulations, Kira!
Have a great day!

About Millville Elementary School
Founded in 1856, Millville Elementary School District is a firmly established and integral member of the small, rural ranching community of Millville. Located just 15 miles east of Redding, Millville School has a current enrollment of approximately 250 students, kindergarten through 8th grade. Our small school atmosphere allows us to get to know every student and to provide an education that caters to each students’ individual needs.
At Millville School, our purpose is to develop a love of learning in our students by providing a high-quality, standards-based education that is enhanced by arts, music, clubs and sports. We strive to create an educational environment that provides the basis for participation in a democratic society by promoting critical thinking, developing a sense of responsibility and self esteem, encouraging independence of opinion and action, and nurturing respect for others.
Providing a quality and comprehensive education for our students is only achievable through the efforts of our professional and caring staff, supportive families, and an involved community. It is through the combined efforts of our staff and community, on behalf of our students, that Millville School truly is “A Great Place to Learn”.
