Successful   THEME

The purpose of our theme is to set the stage for the experiences and opportunities we provide to our STARS at Miller South.
After choosing "Anything Can Happen" during the 2019-2020 school year- we got more than we bargained for...FOCUS- GRIT/Growth Mindset.
"Be the Change" during 2020-2021school year - we learned a lot about ourselves and each other...FOCUS- social justice and self development (Self-Advocacy, Self-Esteem, Self-Confidence)

While we want to continue positive thinking and all the possibilities for the new school year with our theme for the 2021-2022 school year will be:
Time to Shine!!

Focus for Student Success from the 2021-2022 year Academic: Visible Learning Strategies (clarity/collective) in the classroom to increase standard mastery in all content areas and increased experiences and opportunities for students to engage in Inquiry Based Learning (Project/Problem Based learning) for ALL students to shine like STARS!
Culture/Climate: PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) - to teach our students that their skills, talents and abilities require EFFORT to be successful and that we must provide equity through embracing and supporting the diversity of ALL students at Miller South.

If you have any questions or concerns, we appreciate your communication and support. Please contact our school office, as we are happy to assist you!

Thank you!
