Message from the Superintendent

Dear Millwood Families,
Wow! It’s hard to believe that we have just completed one full quarter of school! The school year has gotten off to a great start and we are eager to keep the great momentum going. I want to thank all of you for working extra hard to ensure that your child gets to school on time daily. Although we have had some reduction in the amount of daily tardies to first hour classes, we are still nowhere near where we want to be. On the average across the district, 30% of our students are tardy at least once a week. This is concerning and I know we can do better! Let’s work to decrease this as we head into the winter season.
Please plan to join us at Parent University on November 10th at 6pm for the general session at the high school. If you want to partake in the dinner, that will begin at 4:45. We will have many workshops to help with college preparation, nutrition, and other family relevant topics. We will also discuss our progress on the A-F Report Card at the event.
Lastly, I want to thank all of our parents and supporters who voiced concerns regarding our recent football game against Luther. Although it was a heated contest and their fans were less than mannerable at times, I was very proud of our Falcon Families’ ability to remain calm and demonstrate respect and restraint. Thank you again to all of those families and supporters for continuing to exemplify Falcon Pride!
As always, we appreciate all that you all do to continue to make Millwood great!
We are also entering the last phase of our renovation projects! We should have full use of the MELA front entrance and office by December 1st. Thank you to all families for your patience during these much-needed improvements.
Thank you again for all that you do to make Millwood an awesome place to learn!
We are Millwood… Achieve!
Cecilia J. Robinson-Woods, Superintendent
