Class Schedule

Things are in full swing here at Milliken. I am looking forward to meeting you all during our open house. TBA

Please take a look at our daily schedule with your child to ensure they will be properly prepared for each class on specific days.


EEEK Back to School

Welcome, Welcome, Welcome to a brand new school year!

Communication is key: You will see me on here, on our class Twitter feed and on Remind

All of these options will help keep you in the loop, help keep your parents from asking you what is going on at school all the time and give you the chance to ask me questions outside of school hours if needed (Twitter and Remind messaging systems)

Can’t wait to get started on your best year yet!
