    Message from the Principal
    Dear Parents, 
    Happy New Year! The New Year is a time of anticipation of good things to come and for making resolutions to improve ourselves.

    At Miles we are anticipating that every student is on the pathway to college and careers. This pathway starts in TK. These are the key steps:

    1. Add, subtract, multiply and divide numbers below 20 with automaticity / from memory. 

    2. Read proficiently at the end of the third grade.

    3. Receive Progress Reports scores of 3 and 4 in Reading, Writing, and Math.

    Be a super hero! Use you "parent Power" to help your child get into a great college or a great career:

    1. Provide a home environment that encourages learning.

    2. Be involved in your child's education in the school and in the community.

    3. Set realistic expectations for your child's school achievements and start talking about future careers.

    4. Be informed by joining the parent workshop on January 17, 2019.

    Our school's resolution is to do even more for those student at-risk of failure. for example, we will be offering after-school tutoring to 200 of our struggling student starting in January.

    If you are seeking additional help for your child, please consider enrolling your child on Saturday at the C. Lamar Mayer Learning Center located at Cal State, LA. for more information, please see the attached flier. Scholarships are available.

    Let's make 2019 the year that all Miles students make many strides on the pathway to college and career readiness.
