Congratulations to the Class of 2018. We wish you well as you journey from Millennium High School into the world of work or higher education. We are very pleased with your efforts and the positive mark you have left in the community with your many hours of community service, excellent work ethic in your Internships, and the wonderful way you sought and won scholarships.

We are so proud of our 3rd/4th graders who completed state testing this week! They were focused, took it seriously and worked hard! Great job phase 2! Due to students who still need to finish testing, there will be NO HOMEWORK for phase 2 students next week.
Phase One spent the week continuing their habitat unit. We also made cards to thank our wonderful parent volunteers. P5 has been observing their plants they planted and look at how much they have grown!
