Message from the Principal
Welcome to Millwood Arts Academy (Grades 6th- 8th)! As you know, Millwood Arts Academy and Millwood Middle School staff and student body will merge together this upcoming school year. We are pleased to know that your child will be joining us. In this letter, we hope to provide you information necessary to help you prepare for the first day of school, which is scheduled for Monday, August 17, 2015.
Millwood Arts Academy uniforms may be purchased from S & S Textiles. We strongly encourage families to make uniform orders NO LATER THAN July 10, 2015, as students must wear proper school attire. The store WILL NOT STOCK ANY ITEMS FOR IN-STORE PURCHASE. To better facilitate this process, families may fax, call (405) 632-9928, mail, order online, or personally walk orders into S & S Textiles, located at 2400 S. Western Avenue, Oklahoma City, OK 73109. For your convenience, S & S Textile representatives will be on site to take orders, July 6, 2015, from 4:00pm-6:00pm. S & S Textile will deliver orders at Back-to-School night, which is scheduled for Tuesday, August 12, 2015, from 6:30pm – 7:30pm.
This upcoming school year, students will transition to a block schedule in grades 7th and 8th. Students will be enrolled in 4 classes (1st-4th period) on A days and 4 classes (5th-8th period) on B days. Each class period will last 90-minutes, culminating into a lengthened school day that spans from 8:20am to 3:55pm; breakfast begins at 7:50am daily. In addition, opportunities to participate in career preparatory training; fine art and elective instruction; extracurricular activities; as well as sports are available. Help will be accessible to those experiencing challenges in the classroom and may be built into the student’s schedule as enrichment, or made available after hours during Soaring High.
We expect a wonderful opening to the 2015-2016 school year - believing that all students will be well rested and prepared to learn. You may contact our offices with questions beginning Monday, August 3, 2015, by dialing (405) 478-0360.
Enjoy your summer vacation!
